Community First

Communities come in many shapes and sizes. At OMG, we believe they’re inspired and connected by commonalities - whether it be by geography, industry or interests - communities intersect and play an important role in our everyday lives.

over·​sto·​ry

Overstory noun (Oxford English Dictionary)

Refers to a layer of forest vegetation and foliage, often a canopy of trees. 

Much like our namesake, OMG is a creative ecosystem. Our philosophy is simple: strengthen communities and help people find common ground through high-quality storytelling. The way we do this is by identifying journalists, creators, and existing brands who share in this belief and help them generate in their community.
