Who we are

Sonal studio was created as a rebranding of Mark Zeh Innovation in late 2019

Our work starts with Research, to gain a deep understanding of user/business problems. We then creatively build and explore digital/physical platforms to resolve those needs. We are technologists and designers with both the technical competencies and global network to build and test almost anything we can imagine. We would welcome the chance to collaborate with your startup, product planning team, or advanced design team to apply our unique mix of Research, UX, ID, and Engineering skills to ideate, build, and test your future

We offer a wide variety of services: expert design thinking workshops; global ethnographic research; Industrial Design; UX Design; physical product Engineering... Core capabilites to ideate and prototype the future or refresh your current business
