reason for existing
Founded on the experience of what it takes to design and develop retail-ready products, Max and Maya formed Our Way Studio. It was whilst working for Decathlon, the world's largest sports retailer, that the idea for a different product development and brand creation studio under one roof was born by a clear need from in house start-up brands and with the advent of the trend for startup companies proliferation worldwide.
We are a small studio by design and we like to keep it that way. Our offer is fast and flexible and we pull in additional support when needed, ensuring an agile, high-quality service.
Diversity keeps us fresh. Our multidisciplinary studio is something between a Product Development consultancy and Branding house. Each day is different, we can be found designing robotics for medical manufacture, furnitures for the streets of London, Website for sailing brand, video and photography one day for sports brand, the other for singers, or designing design languages for big companies....
We have worked for the world's largest brands through small start ups.
Truly global design experts.
More than just designing for it, we have lived it. Our deep understanding of global cultures, brands and markets is forged from living and designing in Japan, USA, UK, Morocco, Spain and France. We think this makes us unique.
