By balancing these factors, we have created highly successful aquarium projects around the globe for almost thirty years.

Our Design Philosophy

Our goal is to create exciting, unique and memorable places where people can explore, discover and learn using all of their senses. We create exhibits that are accessible, enjoyable, and meaningful for an audience of diverse ages, learning styles, and cultural backgrounds.

We believe that meaningful exhibit design emerges from clear goals and powerful interpretive content. As storytellers working in three dimensions, we strive to deliver fresh, compelling stories that will surprise each visitor and awaken their sense of self-discovery.

By observing how people behave in public places—how they access information and how they interact with exhibits and each other—we’ve learned that providing layered experiences is most effective for reaching larger and more diverse audiences.
