Our Team

The best people from Indochina
and around the Globe.

Our links to Indochina go beyond provenance – Indochina is our inspiration. And as such riverorchid draws not just people from the region, but people from afar who have themselves been magnetised by the magic of the place.

Indeed, we are extremely diverse – holding more than 20 passports from all five continents, and speaking over thirty languages. We have people from agency and client backgrounds.

Our creative people have won gold at ceremonies as diverse and credible as Cannes, Clio, London International, One Show, and New York.

That diversity makes us rich – and through it all we are held together by our common love of Indochina and our desire to deliver work of this region for this region better than anyone else on earth.

Here are just some of our people who you might meet in our offices.
