Concept Development & Design

From briefing to build, we approach the design process as central to your brand identity and the way you want your stakeholders to experience your brand. We interrogate the purpose of a space, and design for the way people will use and relate to it. This includes considering traffic flow and customer service, lighting, colour and ambience, merchandising and marketing.
