Bluewater Studio is now a part of the StudioCraft Family

StudioCraft has had an entrepreneurial edge since it was founded in 1994 and is always searching for the best ways to deliver built applications and environments for its clients. In 2022, StudioCraft and Bluewater Studio leadership reached an exciting and strategic agreement to unite production expertise, talent, and operational assets including sales and marketing through the arrangement of acquiring Bluewater Studio. 


Through conversations and meetings with the Bluewater Studio leadership James Hungerford and Erich Zuern, it became apparent to StudioCraft Partners Jim Peterson and Paul Knust recognized that there was a strong synergy between the two companies. 


Both companies share a passion for pushing the limits of what is possible with built environments, and each has been built on the foundations of delivering excellence in quality and service in creative manufacturing, management, and leadership.


This strategic effort allows both StudioCraft and Bluewater Studio to increase production capacity and internal resources while maintaining our high-quality leadership, management, project solutions, and project execution for our clients and design partners.
