Introducing Uncorked Studios' Semio Summits

Semio Summits unlock the full breadth of Uncorked’s abilities to transform urgent challenges in a business into solutions.

We help our partners uncover insights about their product category, build strategic alignment among senior teams, and create tangible product prototypes, all in a two-day sprint.

Over a series of coordinated activities, we mirror the broader studio process of Collect / Concept / Create, working against a compressed timeline designed for results.

Pure Talent, Applied Directly

Our methods fit a wide array of partners, from startups to large corporations.

We bring multiple sides of a business together with our team’s outside perspectives, combining institutional and industry knowledge.

The studio’s full spectrum of talent—designers, developers, producers, prototypers, and semioticians—comes together with key partner representatives in our Portland headquarters.

Making Stuff Makes Momentum

Tangible prototypes help our partners build internal consensus around new ideas.

Summit takeaways are incredibly diverse yet intimately related to the problem at hand. Most summits result in several distinct prototypes, delivered alongside both product strategy and roadmap documentation.

Prototypes span a range of design and development disciplines, physical and digital, on the cutting edge of emerging technology, or atop a solid base of legacy tech. Our robust Prototyping Lab lets us get our hands dirty immediately, whether we’re building with wood, 3D-printed materials, or even circuitry.

Across all our work, Uncorked Studios is grounded in making an impact. Semio Summits break down a problem, scan it from multiple new perspectives, and accelerate tangible progress toward a solution.

Summits have generated “Eureka!” moments, and even tears of joy. But overwhelmingly, they create meaningful change. No two Semio Summits are built the same.
