We solve problems using design.
We see design as a solution for issues of experience, information, and the built environment.
We believe that design is the solution to problems at all scales. Our work ranges from architectural projects on the scale of skyscrapers to graphic design with an almost obsessive placement of shapes and typography.
Design solutions can manifest themselves in a variety of forms including graphics, experiences, furniture, wayfinding, architecture, and urban design. Even better, these solutions can harness the ingenuity of multiple disciplines to create a more comprehensive and coherent solution. It’s our belief that these design solutions are generated by teams that operate without regard to the traditional limitations of a single mindset: instead of limiting potential opportunities, we look to utilize whatever tools are necessary to achieve the best solution.
How We Think. How We Create.
Our thinking about design projects departs from the traditional categorical understanding of design. Instead of categorizing our work based on project type, we associate our projects with a particular scale relative to the human body. Projects are part of one or multiple scales: Small, Medium, and Large. This understanding of our projects is critical to creating the best possible design solution by utilizing any tool necessary without limitation of project discipline.
Process Is Everything
You really can’t have a great design without a solid understanding of the problem, its context, and feedback from our clients. This process has allowed our work to explore large projects including museums, high-rise residential and office towers, as well as architectural renovations. At the opposite scale, our small work includes branding and graphic identity, posters and information design, as well as graphic artworks inspired by cities and urban development. In between, our medium work includes parks and urban spaces, installations, murals, and wayfinding.
