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.


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.
