Lost Tribe Media was founded in late 2005 when an economic downturn ousted us from our comfortable, corporate desk jobs. Hoping to avoid the layoff cycle that continually plagues creative workers of the corporate world, we decided to take matters into our own hands. Chris Smith, our President, sent an email out asking if we’d like to meet at a coffee shop, lick our collective paws and figure out where to go next. The tongue-in-cheek subject line of this now fateful email was "Meeting of the Lost Tribe". It doesn’t take a genius to work out what the plan was after that and just one month later (and after checking the domain name was available, of course), Lost Tribe Media was born.
Freed from the confines of working for a single customer, we could diversify our client base and pool our collective experiences. The idea proved to be successful. Lost Tribe Media has grown to include new faces, divisions and services, but retained the same company values as when we started back in that coffee shop in Akron, Ohio.
