What is studio culture and is it still important? We’ve been talking with Google, Netflix, Co-op Digital, AKQA, Common Good, and ustwo to understand how different companies build studio culture amongst their design teams. 

The ways in which design teams work has changed dramatically over the last ten years. Until recently, an organisation’s designers tended to work together in one central creative department. Because designers were situated together, it was easier for them to learn from each other and raise each other’s work to a high standard.We wanted to find out what the state of play was now; What does culture mean for these teams? Why is it important? What works? What doesn’t? How do you build it? What might change in the future?Outline
