Art Dept is a 360º studio specialising in creative direction, cultural insight, and brand strategy. Founded in 2021, the studio is the creative force behind Index Magazine, Island Magazine & The Art Paper.


Our goal is to convert cultural authenticity to brand advocacy. As publishers, creatives and editorial experts we trade in culture — meaning we understand cutting-edge audiences better than anyone else.

From fashion to art and design, we ensure that our campaigns land with relevance for culturally intuitive brands and their communities.


From integrated storytelling to events our partnerships convert authenticity into advocacy, and with our international readership, we’re able to unlock culturally plugged-in audiences locally, regionally, and globally.
