We lead design-sprint workshops that encourage the creative nature of play to foster blue-sky ideation. The result? Authentic, Gen Z-inspired solutions to real-world challenges.
Our workshops are centered on the power of play: we believe that the best ideas come from thinking freely. We create an environment for ideas to truly take flight.
Collaboration is the crux of our workshop. We strive to create a collaborative environment that enables participants to develop authentic and innovative solutions.
We help organizations give back to the next generation by providing opportunities for youth to gain real-world skills for the future. Building their creative confidence, allowing them to recognize the value of their ideas.
We are a diverse team of creative professionals who pride ourselves on being grown-ups with young minds. Together, we blend a mix of creative direction, media production, digital strategy, and product management.
We use design-thinking to create a safe environment for blue-sky ideation.
While structured, we leave enough room for creative play and exploration.
"...whole other level of depth and insight. Extremely valuable exercise."
Talking about what teens might want is one thing. Watching them design their own experiences and talking to them directly about it is a whole other level of depth and insight. Extremely valuable exercise.
"...a rare and wonderful opportunity to not only engage with our target audiences, but to work with them."
The Studio Bud team were professional, accommodating, and wonderful people to work with. They acted as the bridge between our company and our audience, creating a fun and collaborative environment that encouraged creativity and introspection among all parties. The insights we discovered validated suspicions that we had, as well as opened new territories for us to consider. The event was an excellent way to conduct research that felt authentic and fresh, it’s something that we can’t wait to do again.
"I would definitely participate in another Studio Bud workshop."
It was well planned and initiated idea to get various groups together to collaborate and work towards a greater goal. The workshop and business model is very beneficial for non–profits who have tight budgets and may otherwise not have the same opportunities to gather such clever ideas.
"...authentic and rewarding experiential learning opportunities."
My students and I are very grateful to the entire team of organizers, mentors, and collaborators for the authentic and rewarding experiential learning oportunities that we've had these past 2-3 years. The Studio Bud workshops have given our students opportunities to apply their skills and develop advanced creative thinking while working with real organizations to solve real challenges. Wonderful in so many ways!
"The workshop combined aspects of real-life skills."
I found it pretty beneficial and fun. We prefer hands-on assignments and work. These projects impact the real world through raising awareness for not-for-profit organizations through the arts.
Here are some of the amazing partnerships we've formed through our collaborations.
