We’re Powered by Stories
Everything we do is about telling stories.
Whether it’s connecting new generations to innovative books worth reading on their mobiles with Google Creative Lab; creating a moment of calm at the busiest shopping time of the year with COS; demonstrating adaptive technology with a story that changes to readers’ surroundings for Mercedes-Benz; or bringing bedtime stories for grownups into hotel rooms with Ace Hotel.
We know how to connect with audiences through the power of stories.
We’re Anna and Britt
We’re Anna Gerber and Britt Iversen, founders of Visual Editions, London-based Peabody Award winning creative agency powered by stories.
Our background is in the very best of publishing, advertising and design. We understand better than anyone how to push boundaries around innovation and storytelling.
We believe in the power of stories to connect, we believe in solving problems through creativity, we believe in treating our audiences with respect and we believe in the value of spreading as much joy as we humanly can.
