Etter Studio
Too Small to Fail

There is this notion that large companies stand for sophistication, success, security. We think of them more like collateral risk.

Technological progress creates an ever complex and more rapidly spinning world. Therefore we believe that the future belongs to either small specialized companies, operating in loosely organized networks – or to mega corporations, since they have the necessary dimensions to be efficient and flexible within themselves. Other companies will not be able to compete with small fluid businesses and self-sufficient mega corporations in the long run. Etter Studio is one of these small companies, with no intentions to grow. This doesn't mean we can't take care of large projects; we just do it differently from traditional companies.

Our projects are diverse and require a broad range of skills. For each project we form a team of trusted specialists and companies to execute them. They might work from our office in Zurich, but could just as well be in Tokyo, London or Amsterdam.

This allows Etter Studio to continue to work with the best people in their respective fields and offer our clients services of superior quality, while our lean company structure allows us to operate efficiently. This is how we want to work – we like diversity, collaboration and craft. And, we want work in a respectable and sustainable manner.

Etter Studio is an independently owned limited liability company (Ltd.) registered in Zurich, Switzerland.
