Your Positive Impact Is Our Success
People throughout the world care about the issues you’re working to solve. Storytelling is one of the most effective ways to engage minds, touch hearts, and inspire action. With decades of experience working in the impact space, we are adept at talking about complex issues—from regenerative agriculture and sustainable fashion to just economies and political equity—in a relatable and engaging way.
Our goal is to uplift your story and help you reach the untapped supporters who will become your most valuable advocates. Grounded in compelling messaging, our content-marketing strategy will enable your organization to identify new community members, speak to them on a human level, and provide engagement opportunities that increase your audience and influence.
We measure our success by your positive impact.See What We Do

"The Bark team is, in a word, amazing. I’ve worked with a lot of agencies in my career, and none have Bark’s combination of creativity, experience, professionalism, and ability to truly integrate with our day-to-day operations. When I work with the team at Bark, I don’t feel like I’m working with an agency, I’m working with uber-talented people who are as much a part of our team as anyone. They are incredibly responsive, produce measurable results, go out of their way to add value, and are an absolute blast to work with. When you combine all of that with an alignment of mission and values, you get a group that really stands out."Robert Munson / President of SOCAP Global & Managing Director of Marketing and Communications for Sorenson Impact Center
“We work with the team at Bark Media on a daily basis, utilizing their strategic and practical expertise in communications and marketing. Their ability to professionally understand and express our culture, community, voice and mission has been essential to the mutual goals we’ve set out to achieve.”Teo Grossman / Senior Director of Programs and Research / Bioneers
"We have and continue to have such a positive experience working with the Bark team. It has been a real lifesaver for our organization to be able to have the support of those well-versed in journalism, campaigning, strategic communications, and community engagement tracking. We highly recommend working with them!"Rebecca Burgess / Executive Director / Fibershed
"Bark Media is more than a consultant, they are a partner in all of our communications planning and execution. No project or task is too big or too small, and the product is always high quality. And the team is exceptional; they're smart, organized, dedicated, and truly enjoyable to work with."Leah Field / American Promise / Managing Director
“Bark’s level of experience and commitment to authentic storytelling aligns with the transparent, measurable good B Corps are doing in the world through their businesses. B Lab is a lab, experimenting with a new way of business, and Bark has been an adaptable partner in testing, modifying and executing our content-focused marketing strategy. They’ve helped us to see new avenues of potential growth, and they have the skills to apply the tactics needed to lead us down those avenues. Plus, they are really fun to work with.”Jay Coen Gilbert / Co-Founder / B Lab
