LIMIT8 is excited to announce the successful launch of The Peace Studio’s new website—on September 21, the UN International Day of Peace! The Peace Studio (TPS) equips artists and journalists with opportunities and strengths-based tools to restore hope, challenge injustice, and bridge divides.
The Peace Studio was co-founded in 2016 by Dr. Maya Soetoro-Ng, a peace scholar and author, living in Hawaii, and Todd Shuster and Jennifer Gates of Aevitas Creative Management.
In November of 2019, The Peace Studio officially merged with Images and Voices of Hope (ivoh), a nonprofit founded in 1999 when nearly 180 media professionals gathered in New York City to discuss the media’s impact on society. In coming together in 2019, The Peace Studio and ivoh recognized that both organizations were deeply aligned in their missions to support culture creators (artists and journalists) as peacebuilding leaders and could more quickly elevate narratives in the media that focused on hope and possibility instead of solely on what’s broken.
LIMIT8 has been tasked with creating a rich user experience for diverse audiences of ivoh and TPS including thought leaders, artists, journalists, and storytellers whose work promotes peacebuilding and social justice while seamlessly merging the two brands together. In close collaboration with The Peace Studio leadership, LIMIT8 created a content and brand strategy, and implemented information architecture that provided an easy access to the ivoh’s extensive library of resources, and delivered consistent digital experience across multiple platforms and devices.
We are honored to work with the Peace Studio’s team, and look forward to our continued partnership.
