That which exist may be transformed... What is nonexistent has boundless possibilities.

We are unique in our design approach. We have developed the i-process, a five-step methodology guiding all our design projects from concept through completion. All projects follow a systematic approach.

Investigation Innovation Ideation Implementation Inspection

Here we focus on strategy and what is the goal of the retail store. Getting answers like:"Who is our target client?"

We create the big picture of the future... idea generation, conceptualization & brainstorming to create a design strategy that aligns with the business goals.

We start focusing in on all the parts and pieces to bring the cohesive solution together. We develop a cohesive design package that incorporates all 3D elements and brand communications

Polishing the minute details. We create a set of directions for what needs to happen. The result is complete specification information & design documentation, and final artwork.

Once everything is complete, we toggle back to the telescope view, to validate that our conceptual big picture is completed as desired...and is as effective as desired.

 "A lot of people do not understand how important Ideation Studio is in the design of any business. Ideation Studio taught the importance, and look at our results! I could never build another project without using the firm's talents.  I think in two dimensions, however...

Ideation Studio thinks in multidimensional. They make people think outside the box and open their minds to great design.  Bottom line is that when a business is designed properly and a great solution is created, customers and users will feel the difference."

Kurt Schiele, Client + Fan Since 2002
