what moves us

Why Minivan Productions?

human centered design

We believe your story deserves to be told by someone willing to make space for it.

The heart behind why this company exists is to listen and then amplify - so that brands, missions, and movements can find their voice.

We commit to asking questions, walking alongside you, and showcasing value where it’s going unseen.

Relationships create awareness; awareness creates change.

Media that moves
Relationships, People, Culture, YOU.

Departure from the usual

As kids, we are incredible divergent thinkers. A stack of cardboard can be a plane, a race car, or a time-traveling machine!

We see a lot of those curious kids now taking more traditional patterns... we still see blank canvases. Holding onto that childlike curiosity means thinking fiercely about disrupting the way we are taught to see things. We're intentional about encouraging and affirming new ideas and strap in with you, rather than cave to fear in the unknown.

We don’t know everything - we really shouldn’t as long as the realm of possibilities truly stays endless, so we stay eager to learn.

To that end, we are committed to the power of curiosity, to the beauty in the unknown, and an unflinching belief that there’s another way to do things.

Media that moves Investors, Products, What's Next, etc.

what's on the inside counts

There must be a purpose to the content we create, the interactions we engage in and the mark we leave on a room.

We aren't looking to disrupt your culture, we're looking to be a part of it! That purpose is why we work with people we believe in - companies, organizations, causes, and initiatives we believe in.

We want to craft media that moves cultures and communities, so we can’t lose sight of why we’re really here:

To start meaningful conversations with meaningful audiences.

Media that moves Causes, Movements, Donors, etc.

That's a little about our story

But, we exist to make sure people hear yours.


Tested for Distance

We're parked in San Diego, CA.

But we're built for cross country travel, and we never say no to a good old fashion road trip for the right conversation.

Media that moves Maps, ETA's, and Mountains.
