what people say about us

  • When I think of everything we managed to achieve with our budget – we got such great value for money with your commitment and involvement.”

    NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde
  • “It highlighted to me that with media co-op, we have a meeting of minds, we agree on human rights, equality and diversity. I don’t have to explain these things to media co-op and that’s one of their huge strengths.”

    Scottish Independent Advocacy Alliance

about us

Fresh, clear, compelling film, animation, podcasts, graphic design, and branding for social justice and climate justice. That’s us.

We walk the walk: media co-op is a not-for-profit women-led, workers’ co-operative – ethical, sustainable and collaborative.

We work with the public sector, charities, social enterprises and co-operatives.

We’re a multi-award-winning team with a huge range of skills and diverse backgrounds. All of us have roots in the voluntary sector and campaigning for social change, and we’re here to help.

You can rely on us for creativity, commitment and quality. On time and on budget.

Co-production has been our speciality since 2004. We know how to support people to take a genuinely active role in media production.

Girlguiding Scotland Research Report

Unlike most digital agencies, we’re driven by ethics, not profit. media co-op is a democratic business, owned by the workers. Our prices are fair, with no outside shareholders to rake off profits.

We believe in equality, so we all get same salary, whatever our job. We cycle, we re-cycle, and we buy from ethical suppliers.

We co-operate: we’ll combine your expertise with ours. People we’ve worked with comment on how refreshing it is to work with creatives who share the same values.

If you’re looking for media production with flair and integrity, we’d love to hear from you.
