Designed Space

We share creativity and design thinking. Our content focuses on the physical spaces of design studios and the artistic individuals who create in them.

Studio spaces are a representation of creativity and an allegory for imagination. They house a unique culture found few and far between in any other industry. We step inside these studios to deliver an engaging discovery of creative prowess. It's in these studios that the most valuable design solutions are conceived.

Through thoughtful conversations with industry professionals, we nose into creative processes, cultures and inspirations. We push for the career defining projects, the stories behind them, the client interactions, collaborations, and choices of vendors. Join us in exploring quality creativity.

We are actively searching for design studios and individuals in any design/artistic discipline to participate. Please get in touch if you are interested.
