Our Work

Our projects are broad-based in scope, but in essence, are an extension of our expertise: visitor experience planning. Designing and planning these one-of-a-kind visitor experiences and environments to address your needs requires us to blend the disciplines of architecture, graphic design, and interior design.

The result of our planning and design process includes comprehensive visitor experience plans, interpretive plans and exhibition designs, museum store plans and designs, and branded corporate environments. View our portfolio below of several projects we have completed:
