Tusitala is a digital publisher that champions access and innovation. We publish eBooks, produce and transmedia stories, and introduce storytellers to different technologies. We use our expertise in technology, UI, UX and design to transcend the traditional boundaries of print and digital.

Tusitala started in 2010 and is based in Singapore. It means “teller of tales” in Samoan. It was the nickname given to author Robert Louis Stevenson by the locals of Samoa, where he spent the last years of his life telling stories. Our work embodies the essence of a storyteller: using different mediums and techniques to deliver a powerful message to audiences.

Our logo is a kitsune, an enchanted nine-tailed fox that casts spells of illusion and designs rich worlds that the others see, feel and perceive as real. Inspired by its intelligence, mischievousness, and shape-shifting abilities, Tusitala’s values are knowledge, creative rebellion, and versatility.

With a transmedia mindset, you don’t have to choose between print and digital.


We’re happiest when we’re working on projects that allow us to be creative and experimental. And, we think, our best work is yet to be done.

Curious about what we’ve worked on?

When creating for digital, technology should augment – not distract from – content.



Local stories, global reach. Ebooks are a great way to get your stories published and distributed across the world.
