Everyone gets so much information every day that they lose their common sense.

The examples featured below illustrate our broad experience as well as the variety and caliber of the clients we have served.

Our Studio

Built in the early 1950s, the building that now houses our studio was formerly a CONOCO service station. Architecturally, the building reflects the design philosophy of the Bauhaus, the German art school founded in 1919 by Walter Gropius and directed by Gropius until 1930 when the school came under the control of Mies van der Rohe. Fleeing Hitler’s Germany, in 1937 the school relocated to Chicago forming the New Bauhaus under the direction of Moholy-Nagy.

Design is so critical it should be on the agenda of every meeting in every single department.
— Tom Peters, author
