Meet Studio Joko


We are Studio Joko, a creative studio based in Amsterdam. With a lot of enthusiasm and know-how, we develop creative content to help brands create, refine or reimagine an authentic identity.

At the heart of our studio is the notion of working with an open, warm and intuitive approach – a philosophy that is notable in everything we do and make. We are observers, following movements closely in order to come up with concepts that stand the test of time. A sophisticated kind of playfulness is what characterizes our identity and breathes through our work.

The girls

We are Debbie Trouerbach and Edith Scharloo. After working closely together at a concept store focussing on slow design, we started Studio Joko. Sharing the same vision and values, we teamed up as friends, Joko in old-Japanese, to pour our creativity into concepts and work with like-minded people and brands.

Debbie is soulfully dedicated to photography and art-direction, while Edith is experienced in creative writing, both sharing a keen eye for trends, fashion and styling.

Our services


Photography ​& Art-direction

We capture visual stories for seasonal campaigns, look books, social media visuals or e-commerce. We cover the entire process; from art-direction and production to styling and post production. 

Content creation

We create digital content for social media and blogs through photography and creative writing. 

Brand identity

We develop or clarify a brand's identity

by creating a brand story and set up guidelines in the form of a brand book.




We use styling as a tool to define a brand's identity; this varies from the styling of fashion campaigns and look books, to still life photography.

We welcome all brands and creatives that feel connected to our work and philosophy to get in touch
