Who we are.

A creative agency on a mission

ONA was founded by two environmental journalists who, after years of reporting on the social impacts of ecological degradation, decided they wanted to be an active part of the solution. We committed to put our storytelling chops towards what we consider to be the most important story of our generation: climate change. And arguably its most underrated protagonist: the ocean.
 

We combine journalistic rigor and creative firepower to design strategic communication campaigns and produce content that inspire audiences into action. Whether by speaking science to power at the World Economic Forum or profiling local ocean advocates across the Mediterranean, we are proud to be of service to our seas and to those fighting to save them. 

Meet the crew.
