11 months since launch, Studio's gained the following traction:

- 1 billion+ social impressions

- 32 million connections to collaborate

- 15 million designs

- 3 million community members

-Design collaborations with national brands- Nissan USA, Madonna, WhoWhatWear, Skintimate and many more.

Problem

Design traditionally requires expensive tools and extensive training. This has kept the masses from engaging in the design process. Technology has made design more accessible than ever. But the time involved in learning things like typography, color theory and composition is enough for most people to feel like designing isn’t something they can do. Buying Adobe software doesn't make you a designer, nor address the mobile first world we live in.

Solution

Studio addresses these issues by giving users a new way to create - remixing. Regardless of skill or artistic aptitude, anyone can tap into Studio's living network or 15+ million designs and remix those designs with their own content. We see incredible value in empowering the average person to design and share meaningful visuals on the go. Our cloud-based design creation process will replace the need for cumbersome traditional design software. Major national brands, including Nissan USA, Skintimate, WhoWhatWear, Madonna and others are already utilizing Studio as a way to inspire creative dialog among their followers.

Studio is full of inspiration, we don't start you from a blank canvas, and we provide a mobile, shareable platform for new age design. Browse artwork and remix any post you see to make it your own.

Market Opportunity

The app has been a top 50 photo app in many countries across the world, and has been featured by Apple. Users have created 15 million+ designs since launch with over 1 billion+ impressions.  Design Software is a multi billion dollar opportunity, Ad Tech and Social Ad platforms are also multi billion dollar opportunity (10's and 100's of billiions).

Business Model

From TechCrunch: "Studio is a powerful form of user-generated content marrying advertising."

National brands are using social platforms to drive more user-generated content and cohesive branding.  Studio acts as a trojan horse for advertising into all social networks.  Brands pay Studio Design to create a design pack and drive social impressions for their brand across all major social networks.  Brands pay us to advertise custom design work on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Tumblr, Pinterest. 

Through design we help maintain the right branding for the brand, which can go viral through our remix feature.

Case Study attached in the Data Room.

Studio Design is Free.  Pro Accounts will be implemented for $5/yr. Brands pay us for custom content, downloads of each of their packs and social impressions and engagements across multiple social platforms.
