Thanks for your email! We'll be in touch shortly.

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.

In 2014, we plan to release Stacker, an authoring tool that will enable writers and designers to independently produce and publish stacks. If you want to try Stacker when it’s ready, leave us your email address.

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