What is The Studio

A dedicated team of researchers, social scientists, designers and storytellers with deep expertise in translating contextual observations into insights, and a shared passion for applying new tools to human understanding.

Opportunity Framing

Great opportunities begin with a fundamental understanding of people and their context, not with a specific product idea. Teams rely on us to help them paint this picture, moving from vague notions of possibility to a concrete, crystallized understanding of needs.

In-Context Product Validation and Feedback

In-Context Product Validation and Feedback

Things have a habit of changing when they move from the drawing board to reality. Some products blossom, but many need work to “fit” in the context of real people’s lives. The Studio has deep experience designing and managing pilots, and conducting competitive analysis of critical new products.

Agile Communities

Modern research doesn’t always have the luxury of stable objectives and long lead times. The Studio’s agile communities harness the power of dscout’s platform and enable you to work on a set of evolving topics without fixed timelines and rigid objectives.
