Shanghai Studio

Welcome to our Shanghai studio

The most populous city in the world, Shanghai is a vibrant, dynamic destination that attracts people from just about everywhere. Our studio’s multinational team of creative thinkers is a testament to that global diversity. So is our location: We’re nestled in the leafy streets of the former French Concession neighborhood, a cultural hub with a fascinating history. We like to do things on a grand scale over here. We’re always innovating, always pushing established boundaries, always working on a few “firsts.” Ingenuity is what our clients expect, so that’s exactly what we deliver.
