If there’s something that gets us pumped, it is when a client is open to following us down our run into the proverbial creative forest. Straight from the Isles of St. Monkfish, The Grim Granary 2 is a new collection of wacky and wonderful poems with musical accompaniment and characters ready to entertain all you kids, young and old alike. This instalment features music and a special contribution by singer/songwriter, Valerie Yap.

We initially created the Grim Granary 2 app for the iPad, and it was a riot! We had great fun experimenting with features and making their quirky original art and content come to life. The dial we created to fast-forward, pause or play the videos, for example, was an experiment in UX that totally paid off! When we later designed their iPhone app, we realised that we’d have to do a UX overhaul while keeping the elements that made it such a success in the first place. A whole lot of goodness happens when we meet clients who are just as open to new things as we are. So in the words of the late, great Maurice Sendak – “Let the wild rumpus start!“

Our values are the daily beat to which we jive.

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)
