ABOUT 

Our creative agency encompasses four independent but closely connected studios: Experience Design, Visitor Metrics, Experience Media, and Museum Artisans. The solutions our four studios produce consistently respond to the contemporary needs of the evolving museum visitor experience to actively engage, educate, and excite. 

 

The four studios are highly integrated, one serving the other as the need of our museum clients emerge. This allows us to work with our clients from the earliest phases of strategic and master planning through all phases of design and documentation, analyzing and evaluating concepts and ideas, and finally, artfully fabricating and producing the exhibits.
