Fancy Creative Studio

After the last four years of floating around in the cloud, loitering at coffee shops, building our own furniture, and meeting in warehouse corners with leaky roofs, we are setting up in some new spaces. 1212 9th Ave, Calgary and 701 Broadway, Saskatoon.

NOTE: The Fancy studios are not open for public drop-in. Please contact to arrange a visit.



Everyone involved in this program adds a unique input to our process and flow. Our experience reaches from local to international, and we see every project as an opportunity to make something powerful happen.
