Our Process

Concept Design / Ideation

We love collaborating with our clients and thrive off the excitement that comes with an idea for something brilliant. We develop close working relationships with our clients because we know that the creative process is delicate and nuanced in the early stages. We are accomplished communicators and facilitators that bring embryonic concepts, hand sketches and creative visions to reality. Our toolkit for supporting concept design is broad and tailored featuring:

- Hand-drawn illustrations
- 3D block models
- 2D layouts
- Prototyping & model making
- User experience consulting
- Role-play, storyboarding, narrative and performance development

End of Life

All good things come to an end, but we’ve found through planning for the close of a project during the early stages, we can be more cost-effective, environmentally responsible and prepared to respond. Finding creative solutions for reducing the impact and carbon footprint is baked into our approach on projects and we’d encourage our clients to join us in this conversation.
We are able to offer the following services:

- Re-sale of the items used at your event
- Upcycling assets for a new site or project
- Responsible disposal and recycling of assets
- Modular/flexible design philosophy to provide future use for sets or productions
