For students,
by students.

At Second Story Studios, we know what those long nights in studio are like. And we know that staring a deadline in the face is never the way you want to spend your Friday night. That’s why we compiled this resource–so you can spend less time worrying about where you’ll find those last few entourage people and more time worrying about your other classes.

The Team

Meet the faces behind Second Story Studios.

Sam Church

(they/them/theirs)
Sam is the founder of Second Story Studios. What started as a Google Doc shared with a select few friends quickly grew into a passion project. Sam has taught themself Revit and the Adobe suite, and is learning Sketchup. In their free time, Sam likes to bake, sketch, and create hyper-specific Spotify playlists. You can find them climbing trees on campus on warm summer weekends.

Grace Craig

(she/her/hers)
Grace is a 3rd year Interior Architecture student at the University of Kansas, and during her time at school, she has become skilled with Revit and a multitude of Adobe products. She enjoys helping other students with design-related questions, and she sees Second Story Studios as another chance to do so. Grace loves to be with family and friends, and spends as much time as she can with her dogs.

Our Mission

It’s pretty simple. We want to make sure that you aren’t wasting time searching for resources that many of us have found over and over again. Our team is small (read: very small), but dedicated, and we will always do our best to make sure you can focus on your design. We’ll worry about the rest.
