Interview with Synthesis Studios

About Synthesis Studios

From the Synthesis website:

"Synthesis deals with engineering on the edge. Our atmosphere is one charged with creativity, something we consider absolutely vital. We focus our pioneering spirit on solving tricky engineering problems not only for a variety of clients, but also for ourselves. We explore blue sky ideas with exceptional cleverness and a high level of expertise, while keeping an anchor to practicality.

"Our workspace is a unique place, comprised of remarkable individuals and novel technologies - it is an ecosystem which is central to the quality of our work. We are continually striving to balance work and play, and the studios are carefully set up to make that happen. For example, we frequently have recess to indulge our lighthearted side and dream up new playground games. By championing professional and playful time equally, Synthesis provides a place to bring together our staff's extensive skills, as well as encourage inventiveness."
