Media makes storytelling.

Go beyond text. With Atavist, adding multimedia to your projects is an easy, intuitive process. Drag and drop blocks of video, sound, slideshows, charts, maps, and Instagram and Soundcloud embeds to really show the whole story.

Design everything about it.

It’s not just what you say but how you say it. We give you the flexibility to mix, match, and play with a wide variety of title designs, visual themes, and page navigations – without writing a line of code. Or, you can upgrade and work with our developer tools to make it your way.

Be where your readers are.

Reach your audience whether they’re reading in a browser, on their phones, or in an ebook. We give you options for how to create the work, and where it can go. Make the story available for free, share it as a branded page on your existing website, put it behind a flexible paywall, or publish to Facebook Instant Articles.

We believe in craft.

We are a growing community of tens of thousands of creators with tens of millions of readers. Among us are world-class publications like Mental Floss and The California Sunday Magazine, professionals, educators, and people with stories or ideas worth shaping. We believe digital storytelling is a craft. The ability to design and share your idea your way is essential. Atavist gives you the tools to do that and more – simply.
