Great Content Is Art Plus Science

We Choose Clients with Interesting Stories to Tell

Content is the reason people pay attention. Meaningful content is the reason they come back.

Lifestyle Content

Our curiosity leads us to discover what an audience cares about most and that is where content creation begins.

We create editorial and character illustrations.


We create animated motion graphics.

Art Direction

"Working with Grain & Mortar was a true collaboration from start to finish.

The final product (which went beyond our expectations) is only part of the story. The collaboration and creative process is what separates Grain & Mortar from others. Most importantly, we found that the company stands by what they say. Integrity is at the heart of who they are, and we are proud to be partners with them."
