Who we are

We are a content creation and strategic creative agency.

We believe culture connects.  It’s how people make friends, travel and investigate other civilisations, spend their money, spend their time, make films and live their lives.

The culture that resides in a brand is its belief system, coming from somewhere, standing for something and able to spark a connection on a deep-rooted level with the culture that resides in each individual in an audience. When made, this cultural connection triggers deep, long-lasting brand loyalty.

This belief and approach has led us to understand the travel, lifestyle and luxury markets inside out. We never lose sight of the richness of people’s lives when we build a connection between a person and a brand.

Our belief that culture connects is also the special ingredient that makes our people, people. The team at Studio Black Tomato are travellers, dancers and readers. They teach yoga, they play drums and they make people laugh.

We make your world richer by paying attention to ours.

What we do

We connect people to your brand through culture. We make quality work with relevance and resonance.

If you don’t know what your cultural relevance is, we will build a brand around the cultural relevance right for you and your audience – either from the ground up or by reviewing your brand to see what makes it special.

If your brand is culturally relevant – we will help you share it with the world with creative content that cares for its audience.

  • Our Content Creation

    We travel the world to find inspiration and deliver the very best content for our clients. From award-winning video and photography, to engaging copy, beautiful print and digital design work; everything we create for you is deeply strategic, with the sole purpose of propelling your brand further.

  • Our Brand Strategy

    It’s easy to lose sight of what makes your brand truly resonate, what your purpose is and what this means to your audience. We work collaboratively with brands to define a winning positioning, guidelines and communication strategy. Our tried and tested workshop methodology leads to a revitalised sense of purpose, vision and a clearer customer journey with tangible results.

  • Our Manifesto

    Culture Connects.

    When a brand talks to its audience, we believe that to truly resonate, the approach (in both strategy and content) needs to strive for a deeper connection and influence than the ‘what, how, and why’ models of many current marketing strategies suggest.

    At Studio Black Tomato we believe that to 'connect', the bridge of influence between a brand and a consumer is a cultural one. Our methodology of strategy and creative content is entirely informed by this tried and tested understanding.

Our clients

Studio Black Tomato has the innate ability to bring brand pillars to life with content that is thoughtfully and beautifully produced.  They are able to organically insert brands into stories that are highly engaging because of the unique perspectives and unprecedented access they have.
