Welcome to Lola Digital, your external marketing team.

We help our clients amplify their messages and promote their brands using creative content strategies that are respectful to community, culture and traditions.

Founded in 2019, Lola has evolved, refined and solidified its purpose to create impactful content. Our use of clever communication strategies and professional software ensures we produce quality content, in an efficient and timely manner.

As a boutique creative and content agency, we only work with a small selection of clients at any one time to ensure that you receive personally tailored solutions. This allows us to completely understand your brand and your needs to work with you step by step, if needed.

The Lola-fied working environment is stress-free and flexible to bring out the best creative solutions from our team who are based on Waibene in Zenadth Kes (Torres Strait), the mainland (Australia) and abroad.

Meet Kantesha, our fierce leader

Kantesha (pronounced Kan-ee-sha) (she/her) is the heart and soul behind Lola Digital. She is a proud Torres Strait Islander, Wuthati and Papua New Guinea woman who was born and raised in the Torres Strait (Zenadth Kes).

Leaving home as the Senior Dux of her High School in 2008, Kantesha temporarily swapped dinghies for trains when she moved to Brisbane (*ahem* the big smoke) to complete university and gain experience in the marketing industry.

In 2018, Kantesha finally returned home, bringing with her a decade-worth of marketing and communications experience, networks and knowledge from within the tourism, government, arts, property and finance sectors.

In 2018, she founded Strait Removals; a 100% Indigenous owned and operated relocations and removals service based in the Torres Strait. Kantesha sold Strait Removals in early 2020, after establishing Lola Digital in 2019.

While she loves marketing and content creation, Kantesha is also passionate about advocating for and supporting economic development in the Torres Strait region. She was the youngest appointed member of the Queensland Government’s Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Business and Innovation Reference Group and is an industry representative member of the Queensland Indigenous Representative Body Committee.
She was also fortunate to advocate for Torres Strait businesses at the 2019 World Indigenous Forum in Vancouver, Canada.

Outside of Lola Digital, Kantesha is a small business trainer and encourages aspiring Torres Strait Islander and Aboriginal entrepreneurs to pursue their business goals and gain financial independence. Contact us if you’d like to book Kantesha for your next event.

Together with her fiancé Corey Ward, Kantesha shares their boating and tropical island adventures primarily on Instagram (@caysea_ventures) to encourage tourism and visitation to the Torres Strait region. Most recently, the pair contributed towards the Queensland Museum’s Island Futures Exhibition and were the primary photographers of the exhibition.
