The Studio.

As a class we have been set to make up a studio within our groups and pitch that said studio to an audience. I am working in a group of four including myself. The aim is to sell our group and the best team will win. We are allowed to use whatever props we see fit. We also need to think of questions that we could ask other groups that would be vital to ask.

We know our skills as an individual designer and can we now bring these into a studio environment from traditional skills to digital, pitching and presenting, controlling art direction and communicating with clients and working with deadlines. A vast range of skills are needed to run a successful studio.
