Bend Studio

Designing, Developing and Delivering Coolness

Founded in 1993, Bend Studio is a team of over 50 veteran engineers, artists, designers, and support staff who are dedicated to excellence and innovation.  They have the close-knit environment and camaraderie of a small studio, where everyone knows everyone, while at the same time enjoying the stability and security provided by being part of Sony Computer Entertainment America.  They are dedicated to producing only AAA award-winning games that showcase the power of current and future game consoles from Sony Computer Entertainment.

Sony has continued to be a long standing client for IAC, with Bend Studio website redesign the latest request.


I recommend this team without hesitation.

As a first party software development team, we often create cutting edge projects to support our award winning IP. Throughout numerous engagements with them, they have continued to produce superior work at competitive rates. I continue to be impressed with their creative vision, technical capabilities, attention to detail and responsiveness. I value partner companies that have creative and technical excellence, that don’t require micro-managing, are focused on problem solving, are often aware of problems before they exist and are competent, trustworthy and diligent. They are that company.

The team at Bend Studio wanted a website that highlighted the breadth of games they have successfully designed and produced over the years. They also desired to highlight the numerous awards they’ve won as well as the unique culture their company offers prospective employees. Lastly, they required the site be built on an open source, intuitive Content Management System so their internal team could easily manage on a regular basis.


IAC designed, developed and launched the revitalized www.bendstudio.com site on the WordPress platform. Our approach to the site was to focus on featuring their amazing game titles, such as Uncharted Golden Abyss, which has racked up numerous awards. We architected the user experience of the site so visitors can easily find game titles they’re looking for or find out more about the studio and view the most current job openings.
