Driven, Ambitious & Aggressive.
This is Odyssey


Our Humans Deserve More.

The “big idea” isn’t enough anymore. Big media budgets and Madison avenue words don’t guarantee success. Brands struggle to connect with modern audiences. Consumers are smarter. They have more control every day over what content reaches them. And they are increasingly wary of disruptive marketing techniques. Consumers have the controls now, and they make split second decisions about whether you add value to their lives. If not, you’re out.

Its time to get back to the basics of fantastic storytelling.

We produce compelling content and stunning stories amplified through organic and paid content distribution channels. We believe that all media is earned media and thus, are proudly and boldly not an ad agency but rather a studio with full production means to produce and deliver epic storytelling. We combine the principles of literature and journalism with emerging marketing engagement methods delivered on content rich platforms.


The Brand with the Best Story Wins.

The large majority of our people don’t come from advertising.  Rather, they have literary degrees, they attended fine arts schools, they’re filmmakers, they’re storytellers.  We built Odyssey from the ground up to tell a great story and we combine the services to fulfill this promise.
