STUDIOFYNN is a global design, research and sustainability communication agency dedicated to exploring connections and building narratives between design, culture and commerce. Founded in 1997, we leverage decades of experience to help businesses and organizations of all sizes define new opportunities that resonate with their audiences. We connect our clients with the most meaningful cultural rhythms and market realities through insightful global research & strategies, innovative design solutions and creative communications.
Storytelling
Documentary through photography and video are important tools to observe, decode and share the value of cultures and messages around us. We use these methods for cultural immersion, research and as the foundation for our communication campaigns.
YOUR PLACE IN THE BIG PICTURE.
We bring together our global experience and network to offer strategic points of view. Establishing informed perspectives on issues that influence your project, brand or business is an essential activity that charts the path for new innovation, design and communication campaigns.
DATA DRIVEN INSIGHTS.
We facilitate opportunity identification for multinational companies through quantitative analysis. We help companies understand the risk and reward of their decisions related to entering a new market. Using a suite of decision analysis tools and methods, we translate data into insights for market entry and expansion in both the developed and emerging markets.
foundation for innovation and new thinking
Opportunity frameworks are the first step in translating insight into ideas. Understanding trends, data, behavior patterns and cultural indicators are important factors that help us outline potential scenarios around which to build and define new business, product, communication or service opportunities.
IMPLEMENTING & MAKING IDEAS REAL.
We create beautiful, original and compelling solutions through our design process that brings life, form and material to products, environments, communications and interactions. Supporting genuine needs while connecting with desire is the key to designing meaningful solutions.
PLANNING FOR COHERENCY.
We evolve your brand within its existing domain or define its migration into new territories, cultures or markets. This involves decoding the components and values of a brand DNA and translating this into visual design language guidelines and communications.
