Made by Many, a London-based digital product innovation studio, today announced the opening of an office to serve its growing U.S. client base.
Made by Many’s new outpost, located in SoHo, will be helmed by one of the shop's founders, Stuart Eccles, and Gavin Becker. Becker, who will serve as managing partner for the New York office, joined Made by Many from Twitter, where he was a brand strategist. He earlier worked at Ogilvy, AKQA, and was the founder of Collaborative Consumption startup Bondsy.
Becker notes that Made by Many has been growing steadily as companies across Europe and America seek new solutions that will help transform and propel their businesses into the future. “This is a fantastic time to be working in product development in the U.S.,” he said.
Made by Many was founded in 2007 and has 50 employees worldwide. Its mission is to help global brands invent new digital products, build stronger customer relationships, create new revenue streams and challenge market norms.
The studio has been working with a fast-growing base of U.S. clients, including Microsoft, TED and News Corp.
A variety of companies are trying to gain footing in the digital product design and innovation space, but Made by Many has cracked the code thanks to a killer crop of talent. Over the past seven years, the team has learned that building truly original and useful products takes the right mix of skills.
“The key to success in this new era of digital product innovation is a cross-disciplinary team of product designers, strategists and engineers,” Eccles says. “When their experience is combined with user-centered design principles we are able to meet our clients’ strategic business goals -- and the real needs of their customers.”
