About us

Raw.Studio, is a product design studio based in Sydney. Founded by two best mates, Michael and Philippe. They decided to turn a passion into a life long journey.

In 2014 Michael interviewed Philippe for a design role at one of Australia's leading startups. Very quickly they realised how similar their life goals and passion for taking products from zero to one were. Within a year, they designed and launched a number of products, which now attracts over 1.5M+ hits a month.

Through their combined efforts, they have helped lead and design 50+ products, raise $250M+ for their clients, generate over 1.5M+ hits for their own products, present at AdobeMAX in Vegas, have their products featured on TechCrunch and also have Y-Combinator and TechStars NYC invest in the products they've strategised and designed.

In 2019, Michael and Philippe decided to join forces and build Australia's leading product design studio. One that truly understands what it takes to take an idea all the way through to a thriving business.
