Conceived by Figure3 and crafted by @urbanartmetal, the striking gold structure in the lobby of 411 Church gained recognition from the 2021 CODAworx awards. Wanting to activate the volume of negative space, Figure3 created a beautiful custom ceiling sculpture to draw the attention of visitors and passerby, evoking feelings of wonder and awe.

With elegance and luxury top of mind, the sculpture at 411 Church has been recognized as a 2021 CODAawards Merit Winner in the Residential category. A geometric yet organic and artful sculpture, featuring intertwined rods, expresses movement, and creates a stunning visual centrepiece in the substantial lobby space.

Juxtaposed with great views of the city, custom black and white landscape artwork adorns the walls to symbolize ERCO's environmentally conscious attitude. To balance the nature-themed images, graphics created from hand-drawn architectural drawings are found around the new office space, celebrating the company's history and ties to the engineering community.

Early Riser Studio

It is very easy to mistake complexity for expertise. In reality, the good design is achieved when you can't take anything else away. In a word: simplicity.

When every component of a design is deliberate and serves a purpose, it creates a frictionless user experience - this is the goal!

To achieve this takes a great deal of planning, strategy, and empathy! Understanding customer needs and business goals is crucial to creating a simple, easy-to-use website.

This is the approach we use to build websites that are not only beautiful, but functional!

Welcome to the new and improved Early Riser Studio!

We officially launched this past February with the mission of bridging the gap between the creative vision of business owners and designers with the highly technical aspects of web development.

True to form for any good product development, we took an iterative approach to build this business, which meant getting started before we were 100% ready. So here we are, 6 months later, finally revamping our website to tell the story of Early Riser and showcase the amazing brands we've had the opportunity to work with.

A tremendous thank you goes out to everyone who has helped get us here.

▪️To our clients, the remarkable entrepreneurs, who inspire us daily with their creativity, hard work, and passion!
▪️To our family and friends who patiently accept that we’ve been working a LOT these days.
▪️To our growing community and Instagram besties who have been incredibly kind, supportive, and encouraging throughout this new journey.
▪️To our creative partners, whose talent and skills have laid the foundation for our brand.
