We specialize in expressing ideas in environments, and creating meaningful experiences that resonate on a human scale. For us, visual communication is more than type, color and image, it’s an opportunity to connect people, places, and ideas. To inform. To educate. To enrich. To celebrate.

We design exhibitions, installations, wayfinding systems, workplaces, branding, donor recognition, and placemaking projects.

We are hiring!

Mid-level Designer

We’re on the hunt for a new team member with excellent visual design skills and an interest in materials and fabrication. We often collaborate with architects and landscape architects, so a working knowledge of these fields is a bonus.

Our projects are anything but cookie-cutter, so we seek a designer who enjoys being challenged by all kinds of projects, who has the highest standards for design, and who wants to create great things!


Technical Designer

Our studio is growing! We seek a technical designer with a 3d focus to develop dimensional designs and installations. Candidates should have experience in a related field: exhibition and installation design, custom fabrication, architecture, or industrial design.

We’re looking for someone with strong design skills as well as a deep understanding of materials, specifications and fabrication methods. A good sense of humor also goes a long way.
