What

What makes artists and entrepreneurs so similar?

They are both humanists, innovators, interdisciplinary thinkers, passionate about their craft and knowledge. Both tell great stories, work best under constraints and are usually “initially wrong” to end up “ultimately right”.

At the crossover of these two worlds stands Studio 55.

We are a creative bureau who conceives, analyses, initiates, consults, coaches, curates and connects.

Whatever we do, we try not to forget John Howkins’ rules for entrepreneurs in the creative economy: Have fun, learn endlessly, be kind and ambitious, treat the virtual as real, admire success openly, be nomadic and (re)invent yourself!

How

Moving in the fields of visual arts, fashion and design, we work for brands, cultural and educational institutions, individual artists, and creative entrepreneurs.

By conceiving and providing strategy and business guidance to these visionaries, we help them to better unfold and sustain their creative ventures.

By producing original creative content and building bridges between people, organizations and institutions, we help to tell stories, promote unorthodox perspectives, challenge the obvious, and foster divergent thinking and solutions.

Human Postcards by Nora Jaccaud

March 27, 2015

Born and raised in Chambre Avec Vue, Nora Jaccaud, developed early on an ability to listen, watch and assist artists, a skill that opened up the doors of many countries, cultures, experiences which led her gradually to her own voice. The camera allowed her to explore unnoticed worlds with a special attention for the beauty of the invisible. Out of this ability, Human Postcards was born, a series of one minute portraits taking you into the lives and minds of a universal community, the often unnoticed “invisible” people. Inspired by a “the sandiwch man” she calls him, a man she saw standing at the corner of Regent st and Oxford st in London. Nora thanks this guy for this project, which let her believe that we have a lot to learn from this people, “the invisible people”. Like her facebook, account for more info and updates!
