Behind the Name

When Studio 78 was in its initial planning stages of what we offer and how we deliver it, it took us some time to answer one important question: what would we call ourselves? Here's the story of how we came up with Studio 78 Platinum Design.

We are all designers in some form or another. Designers work in a studio. So "studio" had to be a part of the name. We also did not want to be an everyday company delivering everyday products and services. We wanted to set the bar high and let the world know we are committed to excellence and quality. "Platinum" has long been used to indicate the highest quality or rank, so we added platinum to the name.

We tried for days and days with different combinations of "studio" and "platinum", but it just wasn’t right. It was missing something. One day, one of our team members suggested Studio 78 Platinum Design. It sounded great, but where did the “78” come from? It is the number associated with platinum in the periodic table of elements.
