Hovie and Wolken Communica

Design Hovie Studios has become part of the first leg in a very interesting plan being implemented by fellow Seattle design firm Wolken Communica. Wolken Communica, also known as Studio Gypsies, decided to give up its studio in order to change how they work how they look at the world and to challenge themselves on a daily basis. They travel like gypsies with their laptops, moving from one host to another switching their view every month or two, gaining inspiration and friends along the way.

Given Design Hovie Studios' long history with Wolken Communica (the companies have shared studio space twice before), it was a nice fit for them to start the journey here with us. We are excited to be part of the plan and enjoy the creative atmosphere having them in our studio creates.
