  • Should we begin adding to our CX folder before the Discovery Meeting or after? And what do we need to drop into our CX folder?
    The earlier the better! Once you have signed a contract with us, our team begins dreaming about your space! It’s extremely helpful if you provide us with your brand guide/logos/colors, your Pinterest inspo board, drawings and floor plans of your space, as well as a directory of your team before the Discovery Meeting.
  • Will we be able to see conceptual designs and renders of the new space and if so, when?
    Yes! It's one of our favorite parts of the process where you can see the palette you've selected come to life! Depending on the project needs and the package selection, you can generally expect to see conceptual artwork 4-8 weeks after the Discovery Meeting.
  • What do I need to prepare for the Discovery Meeting?
    Our team sends an agenda for the meeting in advance so that you know what to expect! However, we are having a Discovery Meeting because you (the Client) have big dreams and plans for your space and this meeting is for you to share all of those ideas! It is best to have a Pinterest board of inspiration you and your team have put together so our team can visually see what inspires you.
  • Who should I invite to the Discovery Meeting?
    Discovery Meetings are best limited to 8 people. We recommend the organization’s Executive Leadership, relevant department directors and the person overseeing creative (ie Creative Director, Brand Manager etc).
  • Will my space look exactly like the renders?
    The hi-resolution renders we deliver are life-like and an amazing tool to show you what your space could look like. With that said, our render deliverables are conceptual. The final outcome of the project may or may not look different from the renders.
  • What if I don't like the first round of designs?
    We highly value collaboration, as it really is what makes experiential design so exceptional. Our first round of designs are created based on your desired aesthetic, the color palette you’ve chosen and the space you either currently have or are building! These designs are presented to you virtually, giving you the opportunity to share immediate feedback with our team. After the presentation, we move into an iterative design process that gets your project exactly how you want it.
  • What is a Style Guide?
    After our team has met with you and/or your team for a Discovery Meeting, we begin designing your style guide based on your desired aesthetic which includes conceptual storytelling and wayfinding artwork. These pieces are the general direction of the final artwork.
  • How fast are design turnarounds?
    Turnaround times vary depending on the complexity of requests, however, our team will always be in communication with you with the latest updates on deliverable deadlines.
  • During install do we pay or reimburse for the stay of the team that installs?
    During the Build/Installation phase there are no reimbursable expenses. We include installation and travel in the pricing itself. This allows you to have ZERO unknown expenses for that phase.
  • Will you Install the signage and storytelling?
    Yes! We have an incredible, highly detailed install team that will come to your site and install all of the signage and storytelling. This is the very last step in the project, as we’ll need a fresh, clean building to do the install.
  • What if a sign gets damaged once delivered?
    We ensure quality from contract to delivery and damaged signs aren’t excluded from that. Usually our install team catches a damaged sign and we’re able to quickly resolve the issue, however, in the event our team doesn’t catch it, let us know as soon as possible and we will be happy to address the damage with the best solution!
  • What does an Introduction Meeting include?
    Introduction Meetings are exactly what they sound like - a designated time for us to get to know you better as well as you getting to know us better! This is the time to share with us your 30,000 foot vision for your space including timelines and desired deliverables. This meeting generally lasts 30-45 minutes and is conducted virtually.
  • What services do you offer?
    We operate within a three-step process (Discover, Design, Deliver) offering highly experiential interior design services that include custom furniture and lighting design, branded experiential storytelling, signage and wayfinding, custom production installations and rendering and visualization along the process so you can see your dream space come to life!
  • What is the difference between an interior design firm and experiential design firm?
    Experiential Design improves interior spaces. At its core, Experiential Design does require a deep look into the desired practical use and emotional experience of each guest, going above and beyond to emotionally connect people with the space. In a commercial context, this means strategically using design elements (graphic and interior design, wayfinding, storytelling, furnishings and fixtures) to elicit an emotional connection to a brand and immerse occupants in a narrative. In practice, this can take many different forms, but above all, engagement and emotional connection are the foundation of experiential design. If a space doesn’t allow its occupants to feel connected, it’s not experiential.
  • Can you work with my budget?
    We know that every project demands different solutions, different goals, and different budgets. In the way we curate a space for you, we curate a package that fits not on your desired aesthetic but also your budget needs.
  • Is there a payment plan we could work out where we pay a portion now and a portion later?
    Projects generally span over an extensive amount of time and things can change during that time (ie signage, budgets, material pricing etc.) therefore, we invoice after every project deliverable.
  • Why do I need to hire an Interior Design Firm?
    Have you ever started a project and realized you didn’t have the proper tools to finish it? Maybe you didn’t know the proper technique, maybe you made mistakes that were expensive to correct or those mistakes couldn’t be corrected without re-doing the entire project. Maybe you just don’t know where to begin. Working with us not only guarantees successful project completion, but takes you through an exciting collaborative process that defines your personal style, articulates your brand throughout the space, creates solutions to problems that stand in your way, and improves the effectiveness, accessibility, functionality and aesthetic appeal of your interior space all while saving your time and money. From discovery to concept, fabrication to installation, we curate design solutions that are unforgettably you.
  • What packages do you include?
    Full Interior Design + Signage & Storytelling Package Includes a Discovery Session, full interior finishes, custom lighting and fixtures, experiential storytelling, branded signage and wayfinding, and furniture. Signage & Storytelling Package Includes custom experiential storytelling and branded signage and wayfinding. Dream Session Includes a Discovery Session in which you and/or your team and our team sit down and talk about your vision, purpose and what makes you unique. We gain an understanding of your overall long-term needs and desired design aesthetic and then provide you with space planning, conceptual 3D renders and project pricing and feasibility of one space.
