As the festive season rapidly approaches, and we all begin to wind down for the end of the year, we wanted to take a moment to sit back and reflect on the past twelve months here at Studio Seventeen. With so many significant changes and shifts to look back on over the year, our team have picked out some of the best highlights from 2023, and shared some of the projects they’re looking forward to over the next few months.
A Major Move For The Studio
This summer, in our biggest change to date, we decided to say goodbye to our old Stoney Street studio and moved into a bigger space just down the road. After 7 great years in our old studio, we were ready for an upgrade with room for new team members to join us, new projects to take place and new ideas to form.
With our signature Studio Seventeen flair, we’ve now fully transformed the new space and have settled in perfectly to our new home. As many of our clients, friends and team members have seen, we’ve really made the space our own and are ready to work on some great new projects here in the future.
A Team Update
With a new space came a new team member; our intern Mike! Joining us in July of this year, he started his internship with the studio looking to gain some experience in graphic design and web development, and has now been promoted to Web Designer for Studio Seventeen.
Helping us to develop new testing processes, supporting us with our graphic and digital design requirements and working with the team on branding, website maintenance and development, Mike’s a great asset to the team and we’re looking forward to seeing his progress continue in 2024.
Exciting & Developing Projects
Throughout the year, we’ve also been working on a number of exciting and creative projects for our clients – both new and existing. From designing a new brand identity for the NCG Guitars range to creating a number of new sites for rivers protection organisations across the UK, we’ve had a very busy year.
Whilst one of our biggest projects was the development of a core brand identity for the OA Journals Toolkit – an online resource library of journals and documents – to help them approach new audiences and academics online, we also worked on a series of web and print projects throughout the year too. You can find out more about our projects and case studies through the Projects page on our site!
Our Goals for 2024
2023 was one of our best years to date, both in terms of our client work and our studio. In 2024, we plan to continue making progress on our internal projects and external, with some big projects set to launch early next year.
We’ve also been auditing and evaluating our internal processes this month and working together to find new ways to improve our social media, our site and our brand to reflect our new space. In the new year, we’ll be implementing some new strategies across our marketing and our web presence and expanding our business network too to meet more business owners across the city!
It’s been a great year for us here in the Studio, and as we celebrate the end of 2023, we just want to say a big thank you to everyone who’s worked with us this year and helped us to make this year the best one yet.
We hope you have a great Christmas and we’ll see you all in 2024!
