Our Design Process in 5 steps

Studio Blackthorns is like a small laboratory. Our mission is to experiment with, and refine new visual experiences. We listen to you, understand your needs and treat them as if they were our own. Just like the creation of a good craft beer (malting, brewing, fermentation, aging and filtration), here's how we brew our ideas and distill our creativity.

Phase 01: Diagnosis.
We study your current positioning.

Phase 02: Prescription.
We define the problem and set up a communication plan.

Phase 03: Design.
We propose creative ideas to solve the problem.

Phase 04: Prototyping.
We prototype selected ideas and take a practical approach.

Phase 05: Testing.
We develop and finalise the solution to the problem.

Epilogue: Joy.
Happy Hour time. We toast and celebrate the success of our collaboration with a good craft beer, a single malt or even a noalc Kombucha!

We love spirits, wines and beers

We are experts in the implementation of communication strategies that allow for growth and optimization of your sales. Each market has its own characteristics, assets and constraints. This is why we position ourselves as a qualified partner to accompany you in your communication strategy. We set up relevant and innovative marketing levers at the service of your ambitions.

At Blackthorns, customer relations are simplified: a single point of contact, a network of great people and partners, and a real human-to-human conversation about your business transformation.

Our studio is based in Lyon and French Polynesia. The missions we carry out are both in France and abroad. Working remotely isn't something new to the studio and we communicate exclusively through Email, Whatsapp & Zoom.

Our core values

Authenticity & trust

A good understanding of the project requires first of all listening and empathy. Before starting a new communication project and signing with a client, we attach great importance in establishing a strong connection with you. Indeed, we are passionate about the idea of meeting and collaborating with beautiful people and carefully select our different partners. We emphasize the quality of human relations, the sharing of common values, and the authenticity of conviction.
