Episodes of Steven Universe are written and storyboarded by a single team. “Alone Together” was written by Hilary Florido, Katie Mitroff, and Rebecca Sugar. One of Rebecca Sugar's goals in writing the episode was to create a metaphor illustrating the importance of consent in relationships. The function of the character of Kevin is to demonstrate to the audience how uncomfortable it is not to have one's lack of consent respected. The episode was directed by supervising director Ian Jones-Quartey, animation directors Ki-Yong Bae and Sue-Hong Kim, and art director Elle Michalka. According to Elle Michalka, in most episodes of Steven Universe Steven's hometown of Beach City is drawn in a more realistic style than other locations; however, in “Alone Together”, a bokeh effect is introduced, in order to emulate the style of shōjo manga and make Beach City appear simultaneously magical, kitschy, and familiar.:175
