Yes, we made up this word. It’s a squish word—or squord—that consists of “Epiphany” and “Video.”
Epipheo started in 2009 when Jon Collins and a group of friends started creating videos that communicated why a product or service was important. People have called them “Explainer Videos,” but we believe that communicating the human value of a thing is more effective in changing behavior than just describing how the thing works. Sometimes things need to be explained, but most of the time you’re speaking to a human, and humans are smarter than we give them credit for.
Epipheo is more than just a video production house. It is a carefully curated collection of humans dedicated to translating ideas into valuable stories worth sharing.
Born in 2009, Epipheo has created a unique process of unlocking their clients' human value and communicating it clearly to humans. Epipheo's process first discovers a client's epiphany, then wraps that epiphany in a story, and then delivers that story in a delightful, easy-to-share video.
Epiphany + Video = Epipheo.
Located in Cincinnati, Ohio, right next to the magical chocolate river, Epipheo’s cubicle-less, family-friendly office space promotes personal, human interaction among production, design, and sales.
An epiphany cannot be given. It can only be had. We believe that an epiphany, in the truest essence of the word, is more than just an a-ha moment. It’s a discovery of a truth that betters a person’s life.
We get asked all the time if we make websites or infographics or billboards.
We don’t. We make videos.
Animated videos, live-action videos, motion graphics videos, stop-motion videos, videos that don't even have a genre...
The possibilities with video are enormous, and we love to push the boundaries of what is possible.
Making the video itself is actually the last step in our process, not the entire process. The video that the world sees is the product of discovery, development, and production.
A bullet list is only as powerful as the story it reminds you of.
We believe that every time information is shared, a story is being told. There are lots of ways to get your message out there, but if you want something to stick, you have to tell a story.
Every video that comes out of Epipheo is hand-crafted by human employees. On any given project, the creative team consists of Story Leads, Writers, Story Artists, Designers, Illustrators, Animators, Sound Designers, Voice Actors, and Composers. All of this is overseen and managed by a Producer and Client Services Consultant.
We embrace what we call “The Delta,” the contrast between the old story and the new story.
Example: You used to only explain what you did and how it worked. Now you communicate why it matters to the world.
There is no shortage of ways to contact Epipheo on the internet, and we love to talk about how we can help.

When you tell someone a story, you invite them to play. We leap at every opportunity to be playful and delightful because we see it as a chance to teach and learn. Thanks for playing with us.
Epipheo loves you.
