Human-Centric Marketing: Breathing Life into "Corporate" Stories

April 11, 2023

Gone are the days when stiff, formal communication was the norm in corporate spaces. The tides have turned, and a new approach has risen in its stead: human-centric marketing. This approach has the power to inject warmth, authenticity, and connection into even the most traditionally corporate spaces. And at Ellum Media, we've made it our mission to champion this shift towards a more human-centric approach.

Decoding Human-Centric Marketing

Human-centric marketing places people—their needs, emotions, and experiences—at the heart of marketing strategies. It moves away from product-centric narratives and embraces stories that resonate on a deeper, more personal level. It's a shift that prioritizes connection over promotion, and authenticity over pretense.

At Ellum Media, we've built our philosophy around this approach. We believe that every person, community, and business has a powerful story to tell, and it's our job to help share these stories with the world. Regardless of how corporate or stiff the space may seem, we find the human elements and bring them to the forefront.

Why Human-Centric Marketing Matters in Corporate Spaces

In traditionally corporate environments, formal and distant communication has been the norm. But as we evolve in the digital age, it's becoming increasingly clear that this approach falls short. Gen Z and millennials, the next wave of business decision-makers, crave authenticity, transparency, and connection. They value relationships over transactions and seek brands that understand and respect this preference.

Human-centric marketing answers this call. It allows corporate brands to shed their stiff exteriors and connect with their audiences on a more meaningful level. By doing so, they're not just marketing their products or services; they're building relationships, fostering trust, and establishing a community around their brand.

Implementing Human-Centric Marketing: The Ellum Approach

At Ellum Media, we understand the power of a human-centric approach, even in the most corporate settings. Our multidisciplinary perspective allows us to craft strategies that blend design, motion, strategy, and development in innovative ways, all while keeping the human element at the core.

We believe that impactful stories can be found in every corner of every industry. Our job is to discover these stories and tell them in a way that resonates with audiences. Whether through video, design, or written content, we focus on crafting narratives that connect with people on a deeper level.

With all of our projects, we use innovative strategies and tools to ensure your success. Why? Because we firmly believe that the stories we tell have the power to inspire, educate, and make a positive impact on the world. And this belief guides us in transforming traditionally stiff corporate spaces into vibrant, relatable, and human-centric environments.


Human-centric marketing is the future, even in traditionally corporate and stiff spaces. It brings warmth, authenticity, and connection, allowing brands to truly engage with their audiences. At Ellum Media, we are at the forefront of this shift, championing the power of human-centric marketing in all environments.

In our hands, the corporate becomes relatable, the stiff becomes flexible, and the impersonal becomes personal. And in doing so, we're not just helping brands to market better—we're helping them to connect better. Because at the end of the day, no matter how "corporate" the space, we're all human, and it's our stories that bring us together.
