eskimo creates —
brand narratives people
want to engage with.

About

eskimo is an independent creative agency specialising in fashion, retail, luxury property and consumer goods. Founded by Natasha Hasemer and Zoë Pollitt 18 years ago, eskimo has a team with a multi-faceted skill set – innovative strategy, powerhouse creative, and intuitive client service.

Our starting point is anchored in consumer insights, informing the strategy, creative and content to create brand narratives that people want to engage with. While our strengths in creative direction and idea generation make future-focused brands that inspire audiences.

Founders

A partnership born at Vogue and grown as eskimo, our founders Natasha Hasemer and Zoë Pollitt saw a gap in the market for an agency that inherently understood fashion, lifestyle and retail.

A keen design advocate, Zoë obsesses over purity of form as much as she enjoys giving back to the creative community. While Natasha’s passion for producing beautiful, intelligent work is matched by her eagle eye for colour and considered design. Together they have established a business based on clever ideas, strategic thinking and a premium design aesthetic, resulting in clients including QIC, Witchery, Opera Australia, Westfield, Mirvac, Oroton, and AMP Capital Shopping Centres to name a few.
