Jet Black Tribal Ink is a four man design boutique and advertising agency located in South Africa. The works that come out of this studio are totally awesome and as they say: "is a collective consciousness of four uniquely talented creatives".

The Challenge

The challenge was the fact that there was only 28m2 of office space to fit four creatives, desks and storage - and a budget of only R100 000 (€8 800) for the entire project, from dry-walling and electrical, to furniture and floor treatments. The budget and space constraints created a unique opportunity for custom-fitting the shop. From concept to designing to drafting the plans to construction, all the elements would need to be handmade to save on costs and to use the available space to its full potential.
