Long STORY Short: Working Class Studio
Who: Students and alumni from Savannah College of Art and Design
What: Part portfolio, part platform, Working Class Studio gives the students and alumni of the Savannah College of Art and Design an innovative way to showcase (and sell) their schoolwork. Think: modern lamps, original stationary, and handmade vases – all by a fresh batch of up and coming designers.
Why: For those of us who relish the discovery of what’s next and the owning of things that can’t be found in a mall – this is about as good as ‘first dibs’ get. Shop almost famous wares for the home and beyond, all which feature a unique design sensibility.
Read on if you’ve been wondering where Working Class Studio gets all that talent from:
1. What is design?
For Working Class Studio, design is all about collaboration. We work with talented students from the Savannah College of Art and Design (SCAD) who research our brand developing trends and design needs in the marketplace before creating new designs. The student designers share their ideas discovering design solutions that otherwise may not be reached.
2. Who or what inspires you?
Our sources of inspiration are as varied as our student designers. We work with a new group of students every 10 weeks, affording us a unique perspective on design and trends. The variety of interests, cultural backgrounds, and points of view help keep our line fresh and relevant in an ever-changing market.
3. What is one fact about you that we couldn’t find out through a Google search?
This quarter we are working with students from eight states and five countries. They also represent eight different majors at SCAD: fibers, graphic design, illustration, advertising design, metals and jewelry, sequential art, industrial design, and painting.
