Civic Design Studio

We are an Oakland, CA based collective of artists, designers, technologists and builders

with a passion for creating products and environments that promote learning and play.

Design & Fabrication

Civic Design Studio blends old and new as a modern fabrication lab housed within a former metal shop and gas station. Our custom designs utilize the latest digital build technologies to complement and enhance handmade creations.

In addition to build work, we also support the prototype and development of new products to market.


We believe that within communities there is an abundance of creative ideas that translate to products able to enhance everyday experiences and solve problems.

Through partnerships with schools and nonprofits, we are committed to supporting STEAM learning standards and scaling designs and solutions by young people into accessible products.
