Extensive experience, intricate knowledge, worldwide recognition, and an exceptional team of designers allows us to lead the field in Environmental Graphic Design, aka ‘EGD.’ We specialize in the planning and design of signage and wayfinding programs, branded environments, and user navigation systems.

We pride ourselves on design that is sensitive to context, stylistically diverse, and innovative. We stay fresh by always keeping a broad project mix—large and small, public and private, local, national, and international.

We would love to have you stop by our studio for a cup of coffee and discuss how we could be of help on your next project.

Public Images

We work to improve the built environment and make the world a better place in which to live. Along the way we encounter Public Images—the new, the old, the good, the bad, the curious, the profane, the clever, and the delightful. No, we didn’t design anything in the photos, and no, you can’t buy the postcards anywhere, but you can buy the Public Images Book, a compilation of the first 30 postcards.

The Book

“The best book on Environmental Graphic Design in 25 years.”

Craig Berger, SEGD Education Director

Now in its second edition, Signage and Wayfinding Design is the leading resource for creating effective signage and wayfinding projects. It is the go-to reference for design professionals who communicate meaningful information in the built environment.
