·5 min read

Beyond the players, the studio is foremost proving its commitment toward its employees with the addition of a new office floor and a flexibility program to strengthen its workforce across Quebec.

MONTREAL, Oct. 18, 2021 /CNW Telbec/ - While many employers are downsizing their office space as they offer new flexible ways of work, Ludia takes over an additional floor, now reaching 60,000 square feet of work space in a historic building in Montreal's Old Port that the studio has occupied since 2007. As a leader in the mobile gaming industry, Ludia continues to put its employees at the heart by offering a response to the demand for flexible work that combines face-to-face and home-based work.

Almost 15 years after its creation, the Montreal-based studio, which had 10 employees and associates back in 2007, encountered a dazzling growth and now welcomes 400 employees. Today, Ludia claims its strong positioning in one of the most competitive industries. Through new offices, a new logo, new colors, and a new website, Ludia is taking flexible work to the next level, not only by changing the way employees come to work, but also by adopting a new corporate identity.

"From a start-up created in 2007 in Montreal, the studio has rapidly grown into a major player in the Montreal video game industry," explains Alex Thabet, President and Founder of Ludia. "After several years of successfully developing games on different platforms, Ludia took a decisive turn in 2011 by focusing its efforts on one platform only: mobile. At that time, as it still is today, a strong conviction drives us: mobile is the future."

Always at the heart: our people

At Ludia, there is a special attention given to employees. The studio has a long-term vision for the evolution of each of its Ludians and works every day to develop the full potential of them all while capitalizing on their daily well-being.

Ludia also demonstrates a strong capacity to adapt and challenge itself, taking the studio to higher levels in both game development and ways of working.

A strong concept and identity for Ludia: mobile

In collaboration with the creative agency LG2, Ludia has taken a new direction for its brand image. This new graphic identity is rooted in the event that marked the turning point in the studio's history: the switch to 100% mobile and the strong belief that it is the best way to reach people, every day.

New brand image

The personality and strength of the brand is highlighted through a broad, bright and intense color palette, reflecting Ludia's values of inclusion and valuing diversity.

"Ludia has evolved considerably over the years, thanks to the hard work of its employees, the trusting relationships built and that drive to go the extra mile. Now we are at a turning point and entering a new cycle that we hope will be as virtuous as the last 15 years," said Alex Thabet. "We felt it was the perfect time to rebrand and develop a new graphic identity that represents us 100%."

"Today we are very excited to reveal, not only a new graphic identity, but also our vision and ambition for the years to come." - Alex Thabet

The new work spaces have been redesigned and the studio is constantly evolving. The layout is flexible and adaptable to complement the deployment of the Flex Program, which offers employees the choice to work from home or from the office.

To write the next chapter of its history, the studio will be able to count on its incredible ability to create close relationships and quality partnerships with iconic franchises that make the hearts of thousands of people vibrate, and make those of Ludians vibrate just as strongly.

Ludia will be part of those who are shaping the future of the Montreal video game industry, while reaching a growing audience worldwide.
