Welcome to Green Fin Studio!
Green Fin Studio provides a wide range of marketing and communication services to clients with environmental messages. We began in 2010 to help those in research, conservation, education and eco & heritage tourism better engage with their target audiences. Those fields need marketing and communication support but traditional firms don’t always speak the same language.
Our office was founded by two marine biologists who have spent their careers sharing environmental messages with broad audiences. The Green Fin Studio team includes graphic designers, digital media strategists, experienced programmers and creative communicators who speak your language to help you translate and target your messages.
