Sprout is an award-winning, Boston-based concept to launch design studio deeply rooted in today’s pop culture and technology. Our multidisciplinary team fuses innovation, creativity, and instinct to design authentic lifestyle-driven products, brands, and experiences that grow your business.
By infusing our historic 1870s office building with modern style, we designed a studio that inspires creative collaborations, incubates innovative solutions, rapidly prototypes concepts, and gives us a place to relax after a hard day’s work. It features an open floor plan, 16 foot lofted ceilings, a 3D printer, and a refrigerator filled with frothy beverages. Our space has previously been home to many other successful companies, while the building houses a slew of other creative, tech, and entrepreneurial businesses, fostering a rich environment for inspiration.
Sprout employs a loyal, tight-knit crew that truly loves design. Each member brings his or her unique talents and skills to the studio, creating a team that challenges and compliments one another. It’s a “work hard/play hard/have a great time doing it” environment. We pride ourselves on being design doers – the kind that like to roll up their sleeves and make shit happen. There’s no ego here, but there is a little bit of attitude; the type of attitude that disrupts markets and creates unlimited opportunities for our clients’ products and brands.
Sprout is strategically built to be creatively and tactically maneuverable. We stack our lineup with talent and not numbers, as we believe client success is about quality, not quantity. With our potent track record, we’re strong enough to command any room, yet humble enough take the back seat if needed.

Aside from Boston’s rich revolutionary history and (ahem) dozens of sports championships, it also plays a huge part in shaping the future. The city’s innovative spirit is vibrant amongst cutting-edge design, robust research, and booming startup communities…not to mention at the 60+ universities. It’s a cauldron of talent, new thinking, and opportunity, all operating at the crucial intersection of design, technology, and entrepreneurship. We’re wicked proud to call Boston our home.
Location is everything! Sprout is strategically located in the heart of downtown Boston, an area that has undergone rapid revitalization and injected a new breed of businesses, creative thinkers, and entrepreneurs into this historic and once-again thriving neighborhood. Our 19th century building is just steps from all five of Boston’s subway lines and one block from the vibrant Boston Commons.
