Nice to meet you.

Our team of writers, designers, and developers share a passion for visual explanation.

About Us

We work with publishers, nonprofits, educators, and brands to produce explanatory content in our unique stack format.

Stacks are slide-based, interactive reading experiences that weave together text, photography, annotations, illustrations, and other media.

We just released Stacker, a publishing tool that empowers writers and designers to create, publish, and host stacks. Want to try it? Request an invite here.

The Newsbound team is based in San Francisco’s Mission District. Stay in the loop by following us on Facebook, Twitter, or Tumblr.
