Our own products as Love Brands or Container Talks

Container Love has had a significant impact on promoting and celebrating diversity in the arts, fashion, and beauty industries. It has been recognized for its contributions with several awards and has established itself as a platform for queer culture.

Good intentions are worth nothing when combined with brute force. In a world where exclusion, hate, and violence are on the rise, the change that we wish to see can only be achieved through enlightenment, the spreading of information, the spreading of love. This is why education has been and will always be one of the driving forces behind Container Love. The magazine, the platform, and the movement. We are telling stories that need to be heard, giving a face to the invisible and a voice to the silenced. Together we are learning to listen.

We are building a community of artist and creatives, showcasing their works to some key clients in the industry, advertising and creative agencies worldwide to bring diversity and queer culture into the limelight. In addition, our studio provides full-service production, help you negotiate rates and deal with contracts.
