Your creative innovation partners.

We’ve worked for the best ad agencies, the biggest tech companies and the most famous brands.  We're now offering our experience building and leading small creative innovation teams to anyone wanting to make an impact in Asia. Whether you're already established in the region or want to enter -  we can help.

Tim+Gene is a Creative Director and Creative Technologist duo who create meaningful products and experiences that connect with local culture.

Start small.

We're multidisciplinary creatives with a strategic focus who can help you with all elements of business development, creative and marketing.

For the last 7 years we have been leading innovation projects for Google across APAC, and Apple in Los Angeles.

To make this kind of work we believe in small teams and a fast, iterative process.

Our clients and projects are diverse in style and execution - but our collaborations are united by a solid, consistent philosophy and approach.

Google + Panasonic
We designed, developed and created PA!GO - a magic remote for children to explore their world with. Our product uses a Coral Tensor Flow Accelerator for on device machine learning, letting kids point their remote at their surroundings to learn more about them. This visual diary is saved, analyzed and referenced against Google’s knowledge graph to provide further educational resources when they're back at home.

The world doesn’t need another ad. Give people something they can
engage with.

Google + OnePlus
We turned the OnePlus 6T phone launch into the world’s biggest crypto challenge. CRACKABLES is a race against the clock to solve a range of digital crypto puzzles that we know our loyal fan base of hackers, coders and techies love. The global mobile-based experience was written by Sleep Deprivation Lab and powered by Google’s DialogFlow platform - requiring the finalists to use a custom built audio board to decode signals from the web app.

Create ideas that make their way into culture + classrooms.

Google + Glico
In 2016, Japan announced they would only make computer science classes mandatory in schools beyond 2020. So to help kids learn in the meantime we developed a world first educational app that uses computer vision to turn the famous Pocky snack into a visual coding language. We designed a game that could be played and controlled by laying out snack sequences - teaching the fundamentals of algorithmic thinking to kids as young as five. The app has been translated into over eight different languages and features on all boxes of Pocky (even still today).

We specialise in
using technology to create tangible and engaging use-cases.

YouTube + JAXA
Japanese NASA wanted to re-inspire and excite school kids about the application of science in space. We created the first ever VR Cardboard Space Helmet experience to coincide with astronaut Takuya Onishi being onboard the ISS. We got Mr Onishi to record videos while in space for us to incorporate into the game. To launch the project we sent thousands of kits to schools and held a live YouTube stream with Mr Onishi onboard the ISS.

Our process (patent pending).

We specialize in building and leading innovation and creative teams across Asia Pacific. Starting small allows us to undertake rapid research and design sprints to understand the cultural and societal nuances that exist in the region for consumers and brands. From these takeaways we can grow and create something compelling, meaningful and exciting, to distribute at scale in the places and spaces where people are present.
