Our Playground

Click on the area name for picture.

An abandoned printing room now houses our brand new office. The novel space combines work and
leisure with the whole of the first floor dedicated for sports.

If you are tired, lie down and rest on the small patches of "pastures". Or just put your feet up in the many nooks and crannies and see the world go by NSTP. Expect parties and get-togethers and experience
inspiration and happiness.

Put an environmentalist, entrepreneur, tech freak, crafts lady and aspiring chef in a room. Throw in a designer or two, foodies and amateur photographer and you get the eMedia team.

    Only the right type of digital presence will survive in the new media space. So we build a buzz where it matters.

  • 3. Social Media

    It’s a scary world out there (yes even the virtual one!) We plan, manage and monitor what people are saying on social networking sites, so we can harness the power that is digital.


    Tenaga Nasional Berhad announced a new electricity tariff would take effect on June 1. We came up with the TNBBUZZ campaign to help TNB reach out to the rakyat to explain why the tariff revision was needed in a simple, direct and interesting way.

    We designed and built the TNBBUZZ website which we populated with cool infographics and video.

Digital Content and Design

We entertain and wow with images, design, and the written word.

// Website Development
Stand out.

Every Tom, Dick and Harry can build a website. But not everyone can build one which is pleasing to the eye and offers great user experience.

// Video
Shoot it.
Play it.

Sometimes it’s best to show how it is done rather than tell it with words.

Watch our videos.

// Infographic
A picture paints
a thousand words.

Whoever said it was right. We present complex data in attractive graphic designs; less words, more visuals. Get your information across in a different way.

The School of Hard Knocks is in session!

Strangers or even our NSTP colleagues must have thought something fishy was going on at eMedia last Thursday (December 22, 2011). The place was overrun with ‘international students and teachers’ dressed in various uniforms. We must have looked like a gathering of misfits, geeks, jocks, school hooligans and uniformed ‘students’. You see this was the [...]
