UW Geology Museum Biosignatures exhibit

For UW Geology Museum's NASA funded exhibit, “Biosignatures – What Does Life Leave Behind?” we worked with the museum staff to create interactive informational graphics that portray life on early earth — before fossils.


When Filene moved into their new offices they came to us to create a branded experience for employees and visitors alike. We also helped them create custom sound dampening solutions.

UW Hospital

The Simulation Center at UW Hospital in Madison is a learning center that helps improve the way doctors, nurses and staff learn new procedures and techniques. We developed an interpretive environment along a busy corridor to promote the center and the importance of simulation to train medical professionals and caregivers.

UW Health asked us to help them guide visitors to use the self check-in kiosks to shorten lines and free up registration personnel for other tasks. We helped design wayfinding around the kiosks that fit well in the interior—but also guided visitors to use the new kiosks. In the first week they saw a 25% increase in patient self check-in.

The project is not only an award-winning design, it was delivered on time and under budget.

The International Interior Design Association (IIDA) honored this project with an "Award of Excellence" in Retail Design.

When UW Hospital began renovations in their Pharmacy, they came to us to design wayfinding, brand the pharmacy and create a lively space that would feel distinct from the rest of the hospital but still fit in. The results have pleased patients and staff alike.

UW Anatomy

As part of a major renovation within The University of Wisconsin Anatomy Department, we developed an exhibit for an entry suite that celebrates the department history and donors who made the renovation possible. We worked together to create a timeline of the department's history with the university, as well as a commemorative donor wall.

Wisconsin DNR

We began work on the Wild Rose Fish Hatchery with a blank canvas. We worked with DNR staff to determine objectives for the hatchery, and then used this information to strategically create an installation that tells succinct and meaningful stories. Visitors now flow through the exhibit, entertained as they effortlessly gather information.

The installation includes an interactive "trophy wall" that informs visitors about the ecology of the fishes found in Wisconsin through a fish identification game. Numbers on fish silhouettes correspond to numbers on flip-up panels that run along the bottom of the wall. Panels reveal the species of fish, record catch in Wisconsin and fish habitat.
