Each Other Company

Each Other Company is a Jakarta-based design practice focusing on strategic branding, visual narrative and research. We engaged in partnerships with people, businesses and communities to work on projects within cultural, educational and commercial sectors. Being media-agnostic, our work is communicating through any print, environmental and digital modes.

Recent commissions include the exhibition design and publicity for Mastercraft: Preface (Maison&Objet, Paris) and Nomadic Traveler (Edwin's Gallery, Jakarta); installation design for Indonesia Fashion Forward; visual identities for Sean Sheila, Value Prism Corporation (ARTJOG, Yogyakarta), and Two Hands Full; books for Korean Cultural Center Indonesia and documentary photographer Andri Tambunan.

Between 2015–16, Each Other Company was the brand partner for the two-time Dewi Fashion Knight (DFK) designer, fbudi; and currently responsible for the visual identity and art direction of Wonders of Weaving 2017 Series (2015–) and Korea-Indonesia Media Installation Art Exhibition (2016–).

The scope of our work often includes consultancy which allows us to build intelligent and effective design responses with a strategic perspective within the scope of different media. We believes that design has the power to contribute to progress, foster discussion, and facilitate change.
