This report was prompted by an increasing number of inquiries from others learning about information management by doing it. Our project was undertaken in order to consider critically the work being done in a design studio in use for a number of years. This report explores the design studio concept, highlighting an arrangement used by designers to bridge theory and development. In the case presented here of the Ocean Informatics, work occurs at the intersection of science, data, and technology. In developing an arena for engagement, the studio is a collaborative strategy. As a practical introduction, a brief description of the Design Studio together with some of its elements and the motivations for creating it, are given
