The New Studio

A few months ago, I was so beyond lucky/blessed/fortunate to meet Ty Mattson of Mattson Creative. He's a graphic designer, really, check out his work and be blown away. He decided to expand his studio in Orange County and host an collective of creatives within a single space. SND CYN Studios is a place where a group of people rent space, but--really--share energy.

SND CYN Studios hosts a wide array of creatives (designers, cinematographers, musicians) and while everyone has their own space or office, there's also meeting rooms for us to use. This is where I meet my clients and I've truly fallen in love with the space.

One of things I'm most thankful for is the ability to still meet along side my friends at Elysium Productions. I mentioned in the past sharing a studio with Elysium Productions, but the lease was up in December and we were faced with finding a new solution. Much to our surprise and delight, we signed contracts with SND CYN Studios the same month and still get to see each other in the halls.

I still do most my work from my home office, but having a space to meet clients as well as connect with other creatives has been an amazing experience thus far...I hope to have you join me in a few days so we can share and connect, too!

Hope to see you in the studio one day soon!

Alex Sablan - Wow, that place is beautiful. I think, once again, you have given me some great ideas on how to network locally.  07.29.12 - 8:12am
cassandra-m - OOhhh.....CONGRATS congrats. I would be very interested in hearing your "thoughts & opinions" on the new studio life, after a couple months. I still work from my Home Studio and sadly find that "some" friends & family tend to have a "lack of respect" for your time when working from home. Please blog about the new experience when you can. I might need to expand to a studio. :)))) hee hee. thanks Jasmine. xoxoox.  07.26.12 - 4:44pm
Mikaela - amazing new studio space! love it, and the concept behind it. so sorry to hear that i missed you on showit live! you know i would've fired back some tough questions your way ;) to watch the video...  07.26.12 - 1:37pm
Stephanie - That studio is amazing! I'm so inspired by you and your business. I left my sad, soul-sucking law firm job last December to pursue my photography passion full time. I'm only about 7 months into my business and, as scary and stressful as it is, it's more fulfilling than I ever could've dreamed. I hope to one day reach the level of success and professionalism you've achieved. You are an inspiration. (And I'm totes jealous of your studio space. If I could create my own personal studio, it would look awfully similar to these photos.)  07.26.12 - 1:22pm
