Is this the future design studio?
Will the current design studio model survive in the gig economy where design execution is commoditised?
Is the model changing to value the thinking and expertise of designers?
Is the ‘Hollywood’ production model the future structure for design studios?
A number of events happened recently that led me to question the sustainability of traditional design studios. At a Business of Design Breakfast session last week Charl Laubscher of Love and money outlined his approach to changing the design studio model by only working to 3.30pm each day. He had a very well thought-through process to make this possible. He’ss disrupting the idea of the ‘normal’ 10 hour work day in studios.
