How we're different
We have had 10 years and over 2,000 projects to refine our process, a process that is unique to us and our culture, that will help you get from where you are now to where you want to go.
The first thing we focus on is gaining audience insight. We want to know your audience — who you are trying to move. Whether it is a student-athlete, recruit, donor, alumni, or fan, we put ourselves in their shoes. How do they think? How do we move them? We do our research and figure it out.
A second differentiator is our creative DNA, which for us means two things. First, our design and creative process is collaborative. We aren't the type to go off in our corner for months, design something, and come back expecting you to like it. Even if you can’t draw anything, by the end of our process you’ve worked with us to make sure your vision comes to life. Second, nothing that we do is ever pulled off a shelf. Our work is uniquely crafted for you and with you. That's the only way to stay true to who you are from initial drawing to final render.
Finally, in order to wow your audiences, it's important that we're bold and uncompromising at every stage of a project — that we ha...ve a certain mojo. We are a fearless group and we don't shy away from challenges; in fact, we seek them out. During a project we encounter a fair amount of naysayers and doubters, but we are relentless in pursuing your original vision. Our intention is that you see your new space and say, "that looks just like the design."
