Studio Koto

We make brands come alive

‘Koto’ is a Japanese word that describes an emotional experience, beyond pure aesthetics. It’s a name that drives us to build brands with rich narratives. Work that doesn't just look good, but which makes you feel something, too.

Studio Koto

We make no assumptions

From skincare to security software, rideshares to rental sites, our diverse experiences bring fresh perspectives to every project. But we’re always careful to start with a beginner’s mind to generate surprising insights and avoid stale thinking.

We make for great conversation

No one at Koto is short of an opinion. We believe in positivity, the cadence of hard work, and the importance of lasting relationships. We’re always eager to meet new partners who share these values.
