Here are a few perspectives that guide our work:
People are more conscious of design than ever before. Whatever the service or product, whatever the consumption or value, an intangible context surrounds all interactions. Successful businesses realize that they offer designed experiences, regardless of service or product, and invest the necessary resources to enhance both. People are not only more conscious of design, they are hungry for images, themes and experiences that satisfy them on many levels: aesthetic, pragmatic, ideological, cultural. They are hungry for "good" design.
Good Design is not just about pretty. Good design solves problems, conveys messages and delivers meaning. Good design makes a difference, and certainly can do so from a bottom-line business perspective. Ultimately, our clients partner with us so they can better compete with better design. As Kun-Hee Lee, Chairman and CEO of Samsung states, "Design is the single most critical factor in determining the ultimate winner of the 21st century."
Design is about connecting. Working with our clients, we emphasize a thorough, deeply considerate research process with an emphasis on learning and listening. At the same time, we center the process on audiences and contexts. We design for real people, not demographic targets. We understand that real people are looking for something more and guide our clients, processes and designs in creating greater tangible value for all.
Sensory experiences shape thoughts and feelings. Our design process is underscored by an understanding of human nature. People are at once intellectual and emotional; our behaviors, rational and irrational; our decisions, pragmatic and intuitive. Consequently, we design to pique the mind and engage the heart.
