Our Story

Knowble Media was established in 2010 as a digital communications partner for higher education, health care, and non-profits.

What We Do

We use strong design principals, creative video direction, and leading-edge web development standards to create digital experiences designed to strengthen brand position, achieve communication goals, and exceed expectations.

Our Philosophy

Our business philosophy is one of collaboration. We've seen time and again that when the right people are aligned in the right way, great things happen. We believe that smaller is better, and that specialization leads to successful outcomes.


  • collaborative (there's nothing we like better)
  • responsive (we can move with you)
  • personal (let's have coffee)
  • innovative (some call it leading edge)
  • honest (sometimes, too honest)
  • funny (that's up to you)


Civilization is a race between education and catastrophe.

- H.G. Wells

Our Expertise

Think of us like a digital tailor. Every project is designed from scratch and nothing ever comes off the rack.
Our work is always custom made.

Creative Direction + Strategy

We work with our clients to create experiences that build their brands and achieve communication & marketing goals. We believe that creativity combined with leading-edge strategy makes for powerful end results.

Video + Animation

There isn't a better way to tell your story. High-quality video captures the personality of the people that make your organization unique. From campaigns to commericals - we write, direct, and produce.

Web Design + CMS Development

We design and develop progressive websites for many different CMS platforms. Our scope of work can vary greatly - from full-scale institutional redesigns to targeted campaign sites for fundrasing and recruitment goals.

The Next big Idea

We've built touch screen expiences, written financial aid calculators, designed an admission visit scheduling tool, and created our own campus mapping platform. We love being challenged with new ideas.

Work is love made visible.

- Kahlil Gibran


Seeing is believing.
We hope you have fun exploring our work.
