About us

We’re a Swedish creative consultancy & agency based in Shanghai. We started TOMORROW with a simple but compelling question: Where do you want to be tomorrow? This question drives us to challenge ourselves and our clients to embrace the future, and always be a day ahead.  

We turn creativity into business for global brands, including Converse, Absolut, Burberry, Peet’s Coffee, Sam’s Club and TAG Heuer. Our creative consultancy delivers brand and communication strategies, while our creative agency delivers digital campaigns and platforms.

We’re a team of 30 digital-natives from across the world, working in a beautiful office that gives us the freedom to do our best work. We foster progressive thinking among and beyond ourselves, and frequently host events on the future of creativity, innovation and work. 

 

Culture 

We value freedom, that’s why we’re trustworthy, count on each other, and give each other a lot of freedom in return. We’re called TOMORROW for a reason; we value progress, we embrace the future and love to change our mind. We also value productivity, that’s why we like to work smart over hard. We don’t only work smart, we also talk smart: we value openness and telling it like it is. And finally, we value inclusiveness, that’s why we love helping each other. 

Question to expect in an interview are: What do you value more; honesty or politeness? Why are you above-average productive? What’s your opinion on a future ruled by AI? How can we count on you no matter what? Why do you genuinely like helping others? 

 

Equal opportunity 

We are an equal opportunity employer and value diversity at our company. Our team is 57% female and 43% male. We employ citizens from China, Sweden, The Netherlands, Russia and the Philippines. We do not discriminate based on race, religion, color, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, age, marital status, or disability status.

 

Interview process

Please submit your application on and the hiring manager will respond on your application within a week. Our office manager will then give you a call to do a quick screening, after which a first-round interview is scheduled with the hiring manager. You will then be asked to do a homework assignment, to present to the broader hiring team in the second interview. The third interview is a casual chat and coffee with your future colleagues. After that we will call at least two references for a background check. If all looks good, we’ll then prepare an offer letter and get you on board!
