Who are Studio Something?

Studio Something is a creative agency on a mission to make something people genuinely like. This means delivering solutions we believe are going to work. And it means that the solution can come in whatever guise best suits the problem we’re trying to solve.

Our business is three-fold; creative, entertainment and ventures. We deliver everything from brand strategy through creative ideation and campaign delivery for clients such as Innis & Gunn, Royal Bank of Scotland, SAMH. …

Lockdown, the redux of the redux. Truly, if this was a movie franchise this would be gathering dust in Global Video and only wheeled out by substitute teachers who don’t know how to teach the subject they are meant to be teaching.

But hey, it’s still a new year. And I always find that pretty exciting from a business point of view. A narrowing of focus and anything can be possible.

Even in this strangest of times (it can no longer be ‘unprecedented’ as it’s been precedented twice already) we can find hope and excitement in what we do. …

Ian, our Inspirational Agency Leader 2019, has access to our medium and wants to tell you all about why he doesn’t think working from home is all it is cracked up to be and can actually be bad for your brain boxes.

The Studio Something office, waiting for our return…

There’ve been a lot of think pieces about working from home and what it means for lots of different industries. The ol’ Panny D has made most of us have to adjust and change how we work and how we view work.

Instead of pretending I have all the answers to how to ‘BUILD BACK STRONGER’ after Covid…

Before the novel coronavirus set about ruining everyone’s year, we at Studio Something had decided to expand our team and hire a Project Manager to manage some projects (job description level: 100). We were delighted to get Julie Fazzini on board, no stranger to the Edinburgh agency world and with great experience to help us kick on in 2020. Job accepted in early March with a start date in early April, this is Julie’s view of starting a brand new job without actually getting to work alongside her colleagues, and the getting-to-know-yous being restricted to internet video calls. …

How we made a TV ad in lockdown sort of by accident.

Harrowing. Unprecedented. The new normal. These are terms you have been brow beaten with over the last few months. In the Groundhog Day hamster wheel that is our daily routine, I bet when your alarm went off this morning you didn’t wake up aching to hear another agency think-piece about how brands should respond to Covid.

Our raison d’être as a company is to Make Something People Genuinely Like, and we’ve been continuing to do that through this, perhaps even more so than usual. We’ve been able to…

For those who don’t know me, I have been the Community Manager here at Studio Something for the last 18 months or so. I come from a football background having worked at the SPFL before getting this gig, and it’s a passion that has followed me around since I can remember. …

2018 is winding right down, and as we finish up this week the good gang here at Studio Something have taken a wee bit of time to reflect on what made this year a cracker for them! Do we work hard? That’s a ‘yes’. Do we play hard? That can be filed under ‘heck yes’. So here we have it, 2018 — a review! ENJOY.

At Studio Something we work in an in industry that can be pretty relentless and tough on your mental wellbeing, being judged on what your brain comes up with day in day out can test even the most resilient of us.

So, we thought we’d do a wee straw poll of all of us in the tower to see what each of us do to look after our brainboxes, and try to stay a little bit more okay every day.
