Hello, we’re Studio Locale.

The design industry is changing. The availability and accessibility of tools make it easier than ever for organizations to create their own designed solutions. Teams are creating strategies, visuals and communications to connect with their customers to hit their goals.


However, even when you have an in-house team, sometimes you get stuck and need help. Studio Locale works with a wide range of teams, both those with in-house and those without, to help elevate your solutions and stand out more in your market.

Bringing everyone together around a table is how we approach design projects. Everyone’s an expert. Everyone’s experience matters. Bringing many voices together creates conversations, uncovering insights that are critical to project success.

And because design has always been human-centred, we naturally build solutions that will resonate and be relatable to your audience.

From time to time you can find Phil at the front of a design classroom, barbecuing in the rain, shine (and snow), noodling on the bass or deep in a personal project.

Partner/Director of Accounts

A foundation in strategy development, communications, and operations lets Robin approach projects from various angles. Balancing big picture and tactical execution, she develops the approach for the project, keeping in constant contact with updates and progress.

If you want to lose an hour (or two), talk with Robin about food and cooking, travelling, camping or music – they are her favourite topics for an inspiring distraction.
