Get in touch with our studio!

Hey! Welcome to our studio.

Plot Twisters is a team of researchers, designers, and technologists that creates opportunities for personal storytelling and self-reflection, especially for communities of young people.

We make tools and programs to support people as they build their journeys.

We're building up to the full launch of our digital self-reflection playground. Currently, most of our time is spent researching in our Think Tank and prototyping storytelling experiences related to the following topics:

We're also creating role model reports, designing self-reflection activities, and mentoring students as they explore their strengths and values, in career and life.

Our studio officially launched in January 2020 in North America. Today, our team is spread over three continents and six timezones.

Let's Talk LD

Let's Talk LD gathers and trains educators dedicated to neurodiversity. Young neurodiverse students often lack access to resources for personal and professional development. We seek advice from their leadership as we build our personal storytelling tools. Our goal is to build with the needs of students with learning, social communication, and attentional differences in mind.
