Who we are
Eat is a core team, but also a broader group of creative individuals, from many different countries and specialties, working together on a diverse range of projects. What connects uis is an open-minded approach to creative problem solving that bring tangible results for our clients.
Ayako Chujo / PresidentAyako brings years of international branding, Interior design and visual merchandising experience to Eat.
A graduate of Musashino Art University, Ayako worked for a number leading interior design agencies in Japan and the UK before setting up her own consultancy firm focusing on interior design and branding, specifically for foreign fashion brands entering the Japanese market.
Ayako is a co-founder of Eat and, as president, oversees the overall running of the company, with specific focus on Japanese content and project execution.
Stress relief for Ayako involves a nice bottle of wine and cycling up and down mountains on her trusty Brompton.
Steve Martin / Executive Creative Director“There’s something interesting in everything, we just have to be curious enough to find it”
It’s an approach that Steve brings to every project Eat works on – ensuring that well-crafted, engaging content is at the core of everything the team delivers.
With a degree in astrophysics and an early career as a seismologist, Steve saw the importance of being able to convey complex ideas in simple and engaging ways, which in turn has led to an ongoing passion for great content and storytelling.
Add in an obsession with food and the result was Eat Magazine, the award-winning food culture quarterly that put Eat Creative on the map. The magazine’s success attracted a large number of companies and organisations interested in Eat’s unique style of communication and transformed the company into the creative branding agency it is today.
Outside of the Eat studio, Steve can usually be found in his kitchen, cooking and making a mess with his daughter.
Alison Jambert / Communications DirectorHaving worked for a series of passionate, energetic and spirited entrepreneurs, it's no surprise Alison ended up starting her own company. A number of years at Raymond Blanc’s Le Manoir aux Quat’Saison, ensured that good food and drink will always be central to her outlook on life and a move to Hong Kong, and then Tokyo, a few years later set the stage for her love of travel and Asian culture which came together with the launch of Eat the company and the magazine in 2000.
Alison brings to Eat her PR and marketing skills, a focus on new business development and the ability to deal with anything that is thrown at her. She now runs Eat’s Hong Kong office and on weekends can be found applying her creative skills to her children’s social schedules.
Five principles which underpin our approach to projects.
Intangible brand assets with the potential to innovate or transform a brand.
A strategic approach that focusses on extending a brand's connection and experience.
What is the real price for brands entering a new market place.
Content creation must be a priority not an afterthought.
Content must be culturally relevant. What is common knowledge in one country may not be in another. Direct translation rarely works.
Designers are from Mars and clients from Venus.
