Studio Wé is led by its two principal partners, Antonio Starnino & Antonio Iadarola. We work with a collective of strategists, researchers, space designers, organizational change makers and service designers, to deliver on a complex array of projects related to work. 

We currently work from our studios in Montreal & Brooklyn or on-site across Europe, the US & Canada. Wé is the mix of the word “ué”, a universal greeting in the dialect of Naples, Italy and the pronoun “we” in English.
