Misfit Co
  • Bleeding to the edges since 2008.

    Misfit is an international strategic creative agency, film studio, independent publisher and impact accelerator with
    a bizarrely eclectic philanthropic arm.

  • Empowering the rebellious with obscene creativity.

    Studio Misfit is an international design, communication and marketing agency that works exclusively with the rebels, the subversives and the non-conformists. Learn more.

  • Curating the world for the flamboyantly independent.

    Misfit Press is the finest independent media company in the free world. We produce events, publish original work and handcraft a monthly newsletter covering business, travel, design and culture for troublemakers, rabble rousers and general riff raff around the world. Subscribe.

  • Handcrafting independent films for weirdos like us.

    Misfit Productions is the award-winning film studio behind Confection, New Year and Death is Smoking my Cigars. In addition to handcrafting our very own films and original content, we conceptualise, storyboard, script and illustrate animated and live action films for brands across the globe. Check out our work.

  • The most delightfully incomprehensible investment arm in the history of free market capitalism.

    Misfit Ventures is the deliberately small and irresistibly peculiar early stage investment arm created by the founding team at Misfit. We have no investment philosophy, framework or pattern. We simply cut angel-sized checks to founders we want to work (and have pints) with, who are solving problems in industries or areas we find intriguing. Check out our portfolio here.

  • Changing the world through wildly independent and consistently unrelated acts of generosity.

    Misfit has initiated and financed a wide collection of absurdly eclectic philanthropic activities all over the world, wholly subsidised by the profits from our commercial activities. We build windmills, construct schools, fund medical programmes, provide direct aid to families, craft multi-million dollar fundraising appeals for charities, commission artwork, sponsor research programmes and annually underwrite thousands of hours of brand identity, digital, design, video, campaign and strategic consulting work for organisations who are hell-bent on changing the world. Since 2008, we have invested in programmes and organisations across South Sudan, Tanzania, Kenya, Ethiopia, Malawi, Uganda, South Africa, Indonesia, India, Laos, Cuba, the United States, the UK and the Philippines. We even have our very own Writer-in-Residence programme hosted at our eccentric abode personally designed by our founder in Stratford-upon-Avon. Follow on Instagram.

  • Handcrafting elegantly unusual experiences for misfits, troublemakers and general riff raff around the world.

    Misfit Experiences is the most obscenely inventive events company this side of the Yangtze River. We produce immersive and algorithm-free affairs that bring together artists, entrepreneurs, philanthropists and (non-douchey) brands for evenings of relevery, chicanery and inspiration. To learn more about our upcoming events, please sign up here. And if you’re interested in partnering with Misfit, please contact us.

  • Concocting random stuff that strikes our fancy for no particular or pragmatic reason whatsoever.

    Misfit Labs is the independent art + innovation studio of our founder and creative director AJ Leon. AJ works with a small in-house team of artists and technologists supplemented at times with independent collaborators across the globe, to develop and pursue a wide array of artistic endeavors including original art concepts and installations, immersive theatre shows, custom shoes, pre-batch negroni recipes & mobile applications that solve issues real business people won’t waste their time with, among many other peculiar projects.
