Mapping Stories, Bridging Gaps
We believe context is key. We monitor Asia’s latest developments and seek to understand its global impact.
Kontinentalist uses maps to tell compelling stories. Our focus is Asia, and our mission is to enhance the region’s voice in the global narrative.
Asia is the world’s largest and most populated continent. In recent decades, the continent has seen unprecedented rapid transformation and growth. Its effects are tremendous, shaping economies and politics globally.
How was the world created? Here at Kontinentalist, we believe the world is built on the back of a turtle. The world-bearing turtle is a common Asian myth. It is known by the Hindus as Akupāra and Ao in Chinese lore. Featured in our brand, the turtle represents our commitment to the Asian perspective.
We’re a mixed bag of unique and eccentric individuals, bound by a common passion for data and stories.
