WOKE

Stories

This is where we speak our minds and give updates about our design studio. 

We are WOKE

 

We’ll keep the intro short and sweet - we promise.

WOKE Studio was founded in 2012, and is a small team of tight-knit designers who strive to create extraordinary products. We have had the privilege of working with some world-class brands like LG, Intel, Hyundai, and Mio (just to name a few).

Here are a couple of our most decorated, prized creations:

Mio Slice - We worked hand-in-hand with Mio to develop the SLICE wearable. We were responsible for the industrial design, and the in-app experience that came along with it. The Mio SLICE was listed in The Wall Street Journal’s Best of CES 2017.

Recon Jet - The Jet is a heads-up display for cyclists and runners to use while training and racing. Recon was acquired by Intel for $175 million in 2015.

Now that that’s out of the way, maybe you’d like to know more about the studio and team itself. We’re super proud to have shipped a few products out the door in the past few months, including the Best of CES Mio SLICE, and Kokoon, which raised almost $2 million dollars on Kickstarter. Our team is also expanding in terms of both size and skillset, so we can tackle more challenging, complex problems (we’re looking for a UX intern!).

Most importantly, if you were thinking of dropping by for a hot cup o’ Joe, it would probably be good for you to know that we’re moving into a new studio space in May. We’re ecstatic about moving into the new space that’s more than twice the size of our current studio near  Granville Island...and also because we’ll finally have an excuse to purchase a ping pong table.


Here’s our current studio environment:

That’s it for now, but we’ll circle back again once we move into the new space. In the meantime, we are still looking for a UX intern to join our talented design team - just send us a little blurb about yourself, as well as your resume and portfolio to careers@woke.co.

Connect with us via Instagram or Facebook so you’re up to date with our endeavours!
