1. Your Oral Historian
We sit with you and collect your oral history recollections (really, just lovely conversations). We are kind, curious and knowledgeable, and very respectful of your feelings and privacy, abiding by strict confidentiality policies.
Our belief is that the, the finer the details, the deeper the emotions unearthed and the greater the riches.
We are also proud of our methodology here at Plantain. After all, our directors initially led careers in Psychology, Anthropology, and Global Social Research.
2. Your Storyteller
We then bring your memories to life using your own words and tone, all the while placing your story within historical contexts. The aim here is to create an authentic narrative through which your personality shines through. You can also edit it, as and when you wish.
3. Your Researcher
One of the perks of working with Plantain is our Research expertise. That’s why we dedicate some of our time to uncovering contextual and genealogical/historical records that can add that special touch and help build the framework of your personal story.
Our belief is that stories only ever come to life once placed within the wider context of the time.
4. Your Designer
For your story to resonate, we believe that it has to be matched with an elegant and deserving design.
So at this stage, top-class Creative Designers take over your project, artfully combining your narrative with memorabilia (restored photographs, documents, letters, etc.), and pairing these with the fonts, colours, and illustrations that best speak to your character.
The result is a bespoke heirloom, as unique and as beautiful as your story, delivered straight to your doorstep.
Today, Plantain has celebrated stories from all over the world.
The company comprises of researchers, writers and designers that dedicate themselves to getting to the core of what your story means to you, and what it should mean to everyone else.
