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.

Step 01: Empathy.
We analyze the human needs involved in your project.

Step 02: Definition.
We define the problem in a human-centered way.

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

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

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

Epilogue: Joy!
We toast around the potion of your choice: a good beer, a single malt or an alcohol-free Kombucha!

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 to exchange and sympathy. Indeed, we are passionate about the idea of meeting and collaborating with beautiful people. This is why we carefully select our different partners. We thus emphasize the quality of human relations, the sharing of our common values but also the authenticity of your convictions.

A boundless curiosity

Our communication studio distills creative solutions by mixing judicious, original and modern ideas. We give an essential place to graphic and technological watch as well as to innovation. It is thanks to this bubbling curiosity that we can serve our clients with relevance.

An overflowing passion

Studio Blackthorns is more than a decade of passion in the service of the image. Also, our perseverance over the years has pushed us to gain experience and maturity. Our job, as complex as it may be, is carried out with almost mystical enthusiasm and exaltation.

Punk at heart

"Think outside the box" is an expression that qualifies our communication agency well. We are always ready to break codes and think against the tide. Our mission is to push our clients to question themselves and to always look further. Throughout our adventure, let's show courage, get out of our comfort zone and have that punk attitude that will set us apart.
