Each Other Company is a research, design and development studio based in Indonesia but operates internationally. With a strong background in graphic design, we are focusing ourselves on strategic branding and visual narrative. We engaged in partnerships with people, businesses and communities to work on projects within the cultural, creative and commercial sectors.

Being media-agnostic, our work is communicating across the full spectrum of print, environmental and screen-based modes. Recent projects include brand development for fbudi (2015–16), Sean Sheila and Clarissa Kwok; visual identities for Wonders of Weaving (2015–) in Expo Milano and MAISON&OBJET Paris, Korea-Indonesia Media Installation Art Exhibition (2016–) with Arcolabs, and Value Prism Corporation/Marco Cassani in ARTJOG 8; installation for Indonesia Fashion Forward at the Jakarta Fashion Week; books for documentary photographer Andri Tambunan and Korean Cultural Center.

The scope of our work includes consultancy and production which allows us to build a contextual and project specific solution for each individual commission. We believes that strategic and thoughtful design has the power to contribute to progress, foster discussion, and facilitate change.
