MORE THAN CONNECTION OR ENGAGEMENT, WE BELIEVE IN EXPRESSION

ABOUT

Studio B is a diversity-driven, woman-owned brand experience agency that specializes in producing consumer, influencer and retail customer experiences
for women, by women.

AUDIENCE INSIGHTS + EXPERTISE

We use our company beliefs to create best-in-class brand experiences that focus on women of all backgrounds and ages. We specialize in making women feel valued, understood and truly seen.

WHAT WE BELIEVE

More than connection or engagement, we believe in expression.

What we believe guides our approach. By celebrating the lives of unique and vivid women, we can harness their untapped potential to grow your business and your brand.

There is an education curve that many marketers have yet to realize–we provide crash courses in meaningful, diverse expression.

It challenges us to see the world through her eyes, not through a checklist or single brushstroke.

We believe in living each day with courage.
We see the world as multi-faceted and multi-generational.
We believe that you don’t need to try hard to be yourself.
We believe in celebrating the zest in life and not overlooking moments.

WHAT WE DO

We bring deep industry knowledge, sharp human insights and the best, passionate people to the table to produce best-in-class experiences that genuinely give life to brands and the women who matter most to them. Our strategic partnerships not only bring the best value and talent to our clients, but also help to connect with their consumer in the most impactful way.
