Digital safety when you travel

Digital safety when you travel

Summertime for many of us means travel time, and with travel comes the need to embrace the unknown. When you know little about your destination, it is better to be safe than sorry. Preparation for travel should now include protecting your digital assets from hacks, networks that aren’t secure, or theft. No, we’re not suggesting…

Human with technology

Human with technology

I think about the last time I was at a concert. The atmosphere was electric – the lights, the almost uncomfortable heat, the hum and pulse of a crowd thousands-strong, the adrenaline filling me up – that’s what being alive is to me – the feeling of being fully present in a given moment, being…

Imagine All This – guest post by Don Bosco

If you’re a creative professional, you’re in the business of storytelling. Every graphic you craft, every copy you write, every user experience you orchestrate. Concepts. Photos. Interactions. Special effects. They all help to tell a brand story. You’re building your client’s storyworld. But what happens when you’re given a chance to write your own story?…

Get selling – how to market your self-published ebook

You may think you have crossed the finish line once the writing is completed. Although it is indeed a major milestone worth celebrating, finishing the book is just one piece of the self-publishing pie. An important piece that often gets neglected, is promoting your ebook to get it to sell. How do you make people…

Vision

Our Story
Tusitala was born in 2010, with a focus on telling transmedia stories. We’re based in Singapore, perfectly poised to represent the breadth and depth of Asian content available in the region. With the world increasingly looking towards Asian stories, we’re both excited and proud to be where we are!

The name Tusitala harks to an island in Samoa, where author Robert Louis Stevenson spent the last years of his life. The locals of the island fondly nicknamed him Tusitala, which means storyteller. In our work, we embody the essence of a storyteller: using different mediums and techniques to deliver a powerful message to our audiences. Only, we take it a step further by introducing the exciting potential of technology.

Our logo is a kitsune – nine-tailed fox, native to Asian folklore and legend. In Chinese, Japanese and Korean folktales, the kitsune is an enchanted animal – magnetic, intelligent, powerful, and able to take human form. From the complexity of the symbolism, we derive simple principles that we stand for – potency, wisdom and creative rebellion.

(This creativity, we must disclose, often vanishes when determining where we should go for lunch each day)
