The Fountain Insight Studio is available for a variety of projects but we give preference to those that are in some way created for the public good.

Our thinking, our approach to thinking, is what informs everything that comes out of our studio. We believe that everything starts from a pencil and a piece of paper. Drawing is a form of thinking because it's the most direct way that we can show the process of thought made real.
This is drummed into the heads of every member of the Fountain Insight Studio. Every intern, designer, sales representative and developer is required to cultivate this skill. It allows all of us to communicate on the same level. It's not about technical proficiency but about learning how to communicate simply.
The other parts of our process flow from this. We look at technology as another brush or pencil in our toolbox. All great expression, digital or otherwise, comes from a solid point of view and determined execution.
A clear and purposeful plan, passion, and attention to detail are the hallmarks of great projects.
Working with likeminded organizations, such as Jill Scott's Blues Babe Foundation and Aisha Winfield's Jr. Music Executive, We create spaces for creative individuals to flourish. We also host a variety of classes for high school and college students focused on new media technologies and intellectual innovation. Our Blue Box Studio Acts as a gallery, event and group work space.
Our Wellspring Project is geared toward media arts education. All of our instructional material is project-focused. We have students work in teams to develop their individual strengths. Our upcoming projects clubs are our Jr. Mad Men Club (advertising and design education) & Quest Qlub (geared toward programming and game design).
The Fountain Insight Studio also believes in being a catalyst for change so we've created the Ave Arts North Society to promote redevelopment and cultivation of the arts in Philadelphia's inner cities.
In addition to producing evocative and stimulating work for our clients, the Fountain Insight Studio also produces a variety of it's own products an service. Using the same disciplinez that we use for our client projects, we craft projects that fill a need in society.
For the Health Care and educational arenas, we're developing a suite of apps specifically designed to help healers and educators better interact with their patients and students.
We also develop cutting-edge print and digital publications geared for a variety of audiences.
Our upcoming Bigheaded Geniuses Clothing line was created to inspired and delight.
Our Ad Club focuses on teaching our advance students how advertising works and how to find their role in the industry. We focus on design and execution of projects with student being able to adjust their roles per project. The goal is that students get a taste of life in a real agency. Working with local ad agencies, students will be able to shadow real professionals at work.
The Quest Qlub is all about pushing the boundaries of digital. In addition to gaining proficiency in traditional tools we will also explore the rise of emerging tools such as Google Glass and Emotiv’s Epoch Headset. For students seeking a Code Intensive course.
Our students work on actual projects. Instead of focusing on complete mastery of a software product students should be taught how to quickly acquire knowledge and proficiency based on the task they are confronted with. This is how I learned and how I’m actively learning. Our goal is to teach the students how to adapt.
The busy work that’s done in classrooms today (mock projects done in controlled environments) does not prepare students for the rapid change of our communication and design mediums. Our students are also allowed to find the creative path that best suits them. Our projects will not only require programmers and designers, we will also have the roles of project manager, sales coordinator, copywriter, art director, and in-house illustrator available to students as options of ways to participate in our programs.
As The Fountain Insight Studios ventures into new territories such as augmented reality technologies such as Google Glass™ and The Emotiv Epoch™ we wil adjust our program instantaneously to allow students to learn along side us.
We are currently accepting applications for our Summer 2014 workshops.
