Brighton studio has expanded by 50 per cent since rebranding last year

The Brighton-based HQ of Zoë Mode has this morning confirmed a significant expansion of its team, with staff numbers up 50 per cent since its rebranding last year.

Zoë Mode has taken on 60 staff in the past 18 months at its music and massmarket entertainment studio. At the same time, the team has spun out a separate satellite studio in London.

Studio head Ed Daly commented: "Since our rebrand in March last year, we have experienced an enormous interest from publishers around the globe looking to place development projects with Zoë Mode. This has given us the ability to expand our studio here in Brighton and grow our headcount by over 50 per cent.

"In the last 9 months we have taken on a wide range of new staff; from graduate programmers, right up to highly experienced senior managers. As per our commitment to a diverse workforce our new hires are widely varied in age and include a number of new female developers.

"Following on from this growth, we have moved into brand new bespoke offices in central Brighton, which provide our team with a fantastic working environment and enables us to maintain our unique studio culture."

It was the first of Kuju's studios to rebrand itself, and probably the most radical: not only tapping into the burgeoning casual market, but basing its entire identity on a fictional female. Now, one year later, how is it faring?
