The Internet cares not for yesterday. It wants the new, the novel, the LOL-worthy and the informative — and it demands it hourly. 

When Indonesia’s best foodie start-up Qraved hired us to spearhead their content-marketing platform, the challenges were big and the possible rewards even bigger. We were going to invent internet food writing in a country that’s F&B culture still revolved around monthly print magazines.

Percolate Galactic organized Qraved’s content creation process into an assembly line of editorial writers, photographers, and social media strategists. Over the course of four months, 220 editorial pieces rolled off the factory floor; everything from interviews with some of Jakarta and Bali’s best chefs to in-depth process pieces on local restaurant trends to instantly-shareable listicles. Expansive editorial calendars were created to seize every foodie opportunity we could find. Articles were quickly broken down for social media posting and eDM use.
