our story

The founders Paul and Marie met while working at Hudson Rouge, a boutique agency owned by WPP, the largest global advertising group, supporting the Lincoln Motor Company. Having witnessed the huge shift from an industry of auto to mobility, they bonded over their passion for technology and drive to change the status quo. They realized quickly that the creative industry needs to adopt. After having built and grown a successful business unit together, they decided to found CHINATOWN BUREAU - a product and venture studio that builds tools to power the creative business.



We believe that creative ENERGY is released when you dare to dare. So we put our words into action and create prototypes and products.

We believe that PASSION comes not only from the inside, but from putting love into our work. So we dedicate the first hour of each day to expanding our skills.

We believe that INTEGRITY is paramount to a culture of inclusion. So we surround ourselves with people of diverse backgrounds, personality types and most importantly viewpoints.

We believe that COMMUNITY is created when we evolve together. So we open our studio every Thursday afternoon to our network — getting to know new startups and building bonds with our clients and teams.
