Interpretive planning and exhibit design
Make your stories meaningful
We work with museums, science centers and zoos to effect positive change. For over 40 years we have been focussed on creating experiences that challenge people to think about their place in our world.
A global perspective
Bridge the distances
We have worked on nearly every continent so understand how important it is to respect the diversity of all cultures. Ps. If you hear of any great projects in Antarctica, we'd love to tick that box...
Experiences inspire action
Make your experiences relevant
If facts alone changed our behavior, we would all ride our bikes to work and floss twice daily. Only when the effects of our behavior become personally relevant, do we really work to change it.
A culture of collaboration
Embrace multiple perspectives
Successful projects require the collective wisdom and complementary skills of diverse teams. This can include architects and biologists, engineers and artists, community advocates and indigenous peoples, to name but a few.
Celebrate what makes you unique
Skip the attendance roller coaster
Every institution faces "shoulder seasons" when attendance is lower. We apply a simple principle to make institutions attractive year-round; If you design for tourists, locals will hate it. If you design for locals, tourists will love it!
