What we do
We are trouble shooters and problem solvers. Clients come to us when they have problems and challenges. They retain us because they like what we do and the results we deliver.
We develop effective branding and communication strategy that addresses our client’s specific needs with the resources they have available.
We bring together and manage specialist teams to execute.
How we think
We cut our teeth in editorial design including our own food culture project – Eat magazine – and today, engaging, carefully crafted content is at the core of everything we do.
In today’s global, digital and social world, engaging content, tailored to individual markets, cultures and platforms needs to be central to all brand communication.
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 is an open-minded approach to creative problem solving that bring tangible results for our clients.
Having 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.
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.
