In addition, you will get to see your projects come to life by joining us onsite or producing event assets in studio using our fabrication tools.

MakeLab brings future fabrication tools to events around the world, delivering hands-on design experiences that draw in guests and entertain. Through nearly a thousand creative experiences we’ve designed, delivered, and staffed around the world, we’ve discovered that encouraging people to create and make is an immensely powerful experience that people remember and share.

Our studio is filled with laser cutters, light tables, fabric printers, projectors, 3D printers, digital embroidery machines, vinyl cutters, and food photo booths. We stretch those technologies beyond their design intent, creating accessible, collaborative, and interactive experiences, and then partner with brands to exhibit at incredible events. Creative people who like sharing their love for design and technology with the world will find their place here.
