Listen Closely, Think Broadly

Maybe you’ve heard of divergent thinking? Well, if there’s such a thing as divergent listening, that’s what we practice during conceptual development. As we listen to our clients , we move beyond the obvious themes in a story or collection to look for deeper, more surprising and meaningful connections. We believe that great stories hide in plain sight. If you’re willing to listen differently, those stories will make themselves known, as was the case with American Bittersweet: The Life & Writing of Willa Cather.


Understanding Your Space

Before any final budget or proposal is put forward, we put our ideas into a three-dimensional rendering. This forces us to address fabrication and storyline issues from the outset. Through the rendering process, we’re able to get on the same page with our clients from the beginning.

Sharing the Vision

With a conceptual document in hand, you can share the vision for your new exhibit with patrons, visitors, donors, and grantmaking institutions. From larger themes and narrative walkthroughs to renderings of the space and a complete budget for design, fabrication, and installation services. A transparent process means we can minimize any budgetary and design surprises and chart a clear course to project completion.
