Meet Jason, he’s got music in his blood. Jason Doerr, Studio Other Industrial Engineer, has been perfecting his Luthiery (the construction of stringed instruments) and amp building craft since before he can remember. With a dual love of building and music, he began Kraken Music in partnership with his Uncle Fernando, a retired Aerospace Engineer. Together, they meticulously hand-build wood guitar bodies and amps using locally sourced materials, each piece created with an attention to detail that can only be administered by one with a love for the craft.
Meet Jason, he makes string art. Jason Betty, Studio Other Engineering Supervisor, has spent hours meticulously stringing art since he was first introduced to it by a coworker. Drawing inspiration from the ocean and using hand-stained reclaimed wood, Jason pours patience and a love for the craft into every piece, sometimes spending up to 50 total hours on larger designs. He even made a massive mural on Studio Other's headquarter walls — a string art "Yes!" — that captures the team's underlying intention for every project they work on.

A Conversation with Cassie Stepanek, Design Manager of Studio Other
Studio Other, a creator of custom solutions for commercial interior environments and workspaces, has been named as one of the 2022 Best Places to Work in Los Angeles.
From Kings Canyon National Park to a San Francisco biotechnology company, a giant sequoia tree made the journey from forest to workspace, and Studio Other was fortunate enough to play a part in its repurposing.
Two years ago, Studio Other’s journey with an iconic NBA team began. With a team as highly-regarded, unmistakable and loved as this one, Studio Other, their partner, architecture and design firm Gensler, and the client, agreed that the end solution needed to strongly express their brand and reflect who they are as an organization. In fact, this brand expression was taken towards its purist and most literal form, with elements of nets and basketballs expected in the final designs.
