Each Other Company
Jakarta Pusat 10150, Indonesia

Each Other Company is a design-led research, consulting and development studio. The studio sees itself as an open study that investigates its work through heterogeneous mediums of communication and design. With a strong background in graphic design, our work communicates across the full spectrum of visual media, and by and large concentrates on educational purposes.

— exhibition curatorial, production and publicity for #OnPaperJakarta in collaboration with G . F Smith and RJ Paper;
— identity, environmental graphics and book for Indonesia Pavilion at the Biennale Architettura 2018;
— art direction for Wonders of Weaving (2015–17) and Korea-Indonesia Media Installation Art Exhibition (2016–17);
— books for documentary photographer Andri Tambunan and Korean Cultural Center;
— installation for Indonesian Fashion Forward at the Jakarta Fashion Week;
— websites for fbudi, Maknakata and Sean Sheila;
and ongoing consultancy for a fashion brand, an architecture bureau, an edtech company, and manufacturers.
