Smart Design opens new studio in London

Press

We opened our doors in July, spent August making our space spiffy, and today, we’re thrilled to announce the official opening of our new studio in London! If you’re a creative person, London is truly one of the most exciting places in the world to be right now, and we couldn’t be more excited to be part of this great community.

We chose to set up shop in Shoreditch – right in the thick of East London’s thriving innovation scene. Our team of 15 strategists, researchers, designers, and technologists has been busy working with companies in the U.K. and throughout Europe to create best-in-class service experiences with a strong focus on connected devices. As digital technology becomes more embedded in our physical environments, our homes, and even on our bodies, these businesses face a new set of challenges: how to think holistically across domains that have long been kept separate, and how to manage the new, sometimes complex relationships between people, businesses, objects, and technology. Our experiences have lent us insight into the interplay between physical and digital, and people’s relationships with both, enabling us to help these great European companies make the most of this rapidly evolving landscape.

“Smart Design has a long history of creating amazing consumer experiences – originally with physical products and today with digital products and services,” said Davin Stowell, Smart’s CEO and founder. “With the broad range of experience we have in both the physical and digital world, we can bring it all together in a pretty unique way here in London.”
