community breeds creativity

So many creatives are going it alone. Working from home, or camping out in coffee shops. Don't get us wrong, we love good coffee—but we can do better. Creativity thrives when we keep creative company around us. Designers get inspired by photographers. Developers help authors conquer writer's block.

With a variety of environments and equipment, The Keep is made for the way you work. The studio was designed by creatives, for creatives, to be professional enough for meeting with clients, yet eclectic enough to keep boredom at bay.

No need to lug your own. Capture inspiration the moment it comes, with a Cintiq or Intuos drawing tablet.

kitchenette & lounge

Warm up a lunch or bring in take-out; either way, feel at home in the lounge. We know the best local spots for food (or coffee, or doughnuts, or beer...), and we keep the best local roasts close at hand to fuel your creativity.

flexible meeting spaces

Need to meet with a client? Or maybe hold an impromptu brainstorm session? Section off space for a small team or open it up for a larger conference, all at no charge for members.

All work and no play, right? Clear your head with a game of pool, settle a dispute over foosball, or challenge other members to a ping pong tournament.

Because stock footage just won't do. Our studio is great for product photography, filming a tutorial, or getting the perfect portrait. Members of The Keep receive a discount on booking.
