In 2013 we turned the tables and looked into what makes a really stimulating creative environment. We asked studio founders, creative directors, freelancers and consultants which factors combine to create the perfect workplace.  From chairs to lighting, management structure to client relations, philosophy to free pilates, they all provided some real food for thought.
