Each Other Company is a Jakarta-based research, design and development studio. We engage in partnerships with a diverse group of individuals, communities and businesses in the arts, architecture, fashion, and commerce. With a strong background in graphic design, our work communicates across the full spectrum of visual media—from branding, books and printed matter to exhibition, environmental and screen-based modes.
Recent commissions include visual identities and websites for fbudi (2015–16) and Sean Sheila, art direction for Wonders of Weaving (2015–) and Korea-Indonesia Media Installation Art Exhibition (2016–), installation for Indonesia Fashion Forward, books for documentary photographer Andri Tambunan and Korean Cultural Center.
The scope of our work includes consultancy, which allows us to build contextual and project specific solution for each individual commission. We believe that thoughtful design has the power to contribute to progress, foster discussion, and facilitate change.
