Introduce us to your team

We are a distributed group of 15+ designers, engineers and researchers working at the intersection of machine learning and design to make intelligent systems shapeable.

Our team has shipped products within startups, agencies and big companies like IDEO, Google, Facebook, IKEA, Frog Design, H&M, DDB and Medtronic.

What does your workplace look like?

We’ve recently moved into our brand new hub in King’s Cross at the heart of London. When you exit the station and look to your left you’ll be able to spot our hub immediately, an iconic glass wedge on top of a period building.

The office is equipped with the things we’ve always wished we had in our previous offices. It features a La Marzocco coffee machine (with Round Hill Roastery beans), Linoleum-top ‘Eiermann’ tables, Vitra chairs and other high quality furniture throughout.

What are your team's proudest accomplishments?

In early 2020, during the #BLM protests we released Anonymous Camera, an app that allows journalists and activists to capture anonymised footage in real time. We got featured in The Verge, got rave reviews, had over 60K downloads and raised over 2,000$ for #BLM organisations. It has since been used by investigative journalists reporting on corruption in Russia and Médecins Sans Frontières.

In 2021, Anonymous Camera was awarded an iF Design Award and was shortlisted for the Product Hunt Golden Kittie award.

In 2022, Ford Motor Company announced Canopy, a 100M$+ joint venture with ADT to fight tool theft from vans and trucks. We’re proud to say that we’ve been partners of Canopy from the very beginning helping them build a responsible AI system using high quality data collection and an iterative ML approach.

Recently, we’ve announced a partnership with Rafael Nadal, building his first digital venture, Forma using Playground’s technology.

What type of music does your team listen to?

We love music! Step into our office and most of the time it will be filled by the tunes of our office playlist on Spotify, playing on our B&O speaker.

How do we contact you?

Drop us a line at hello@playground.ai or DM us on Twitter.

Alternatively, if you happen to find yourself around King’s Cross in London you can also drop by our hub there.
