The Red Card Studios Experience

The Origin of the Red Card

Red Card Card

Who is Red Card Studios? Well… The year was 1997. Monitors were big and bulky. Layers in Photoshop were relatively new. And CD-Rs took an hour to burn (if they burned at all). The scene was a crowded, dark, secluded office buried deep in the Universal Studios lot. Nicknamed “The Mushroom Farm”, it was here in this office that the core Red Card Studios team first began working together.

 Graphic Design. Development. Audio Design. 2D Motion Graphics. It was all done in this small room and everyone had to wear a lot of hats. Working long hours and late nights in cramped quarters helped hone their design and development skills, their camaraderie and their collective, albeit irreverent, sense of humor. As long nights drew on, delirium set in, formalities broke down and lines would be crossed.  Verbal red cards were doled out as a way to maintain a modicum of decorum in an otherwise chaotic environment.

The core of that environment went on to work at Disney Online before branching off together to explore the world of digital development for themselves as Red Card Studios.  They’ve been together ever since: coding, sketching, designing and yes, earning the occasional “red card” from each other.

Patrick Skidmore

Co-Founder

While other people were playing Dungeons and Dragons, Patrick was meticulously sketching the characters and monsters. He had a love for the creative and that drove him to pursue design vs. finance or business like so many friends and family. This strong independence eventually led him to venture out with his friends to start his own company. He has never looked back.
