William Blair

At 600 square feet, the studio for the investment banking and asset management firm features two main scenic transformations – the first is an informal interview set with warm wood tones and material palette informed by the new HQ workplace interiors, while the second includes a stand-up monitor for talent to provide market updates. Movable scenic elements include sliding textured wall panels, rotating columns with embedded monitors and multiple roller graphic backgrounds.

Provost Studio optimized the layout for a multitude of content, positioning William Blair as a leader in the financial services industry.

“I worked with Peter and his team during my tenure as Head of Brand, Marketing and Communications at William Blair. The assignment was to design and build a flexible production studio at the new global headquarters on the Chicago River. With limited square footage and lots of needs, Peter and team created a space that perfectly captured the William Blair brand. It won numerous awards and, more importantly, is used every day for media interviews, social posts and video production. Peter is a great listener – skilled at turning thoughts and ideas into tangible experiences.”
