We believe in the power of play.

Studio Bud

We help brands develop unique and authentic solutions by collaborating with key members of Generation Z.

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.


Power of Play

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.

Innovation

Collaboration is the crux of our workshop. We strive to create a collaborative environment that enables participants to develop authentic and innovative solutions.

Social Good

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.

Our Team

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.


Our Process


We use design-thinking to create a safe environment for blue-sky ideation.
While structured, we leave enough room for creative play and exploration.
