Our Story .

Who we are

Once upon a time, in a land not so far away, we went to schools and learned to be architects and planners and designers. We learned what beauty is, and we learned how to make beauty. We were taught that success happens when we are satisfied with our designs. When we finished learning all that the schools had to teach us, we started working. Practicing. We made beauty as we saw beauty. We were satisfied with our designs, and thought them successful.

Then one day we went to work for a small entertainment company named Disney. And a few others with names like Universal, Warner Bros. and Paramount. We learned new things. We learned that beauty is in the eye of the beholder, that dreams can become real, and that success is what happens when our clients succeed. We learned to Think. We learned to Create. We learned to help our clients Succeed.

Think, Create, Succeed. In that order. That is our process. That’s what we do.

We See Through

Your Eyes .

Designers design. Create. Most designers just start drawing. We’ve learned to Think. Think First. Think Differently. See through your Eyes. What does that mean? It means we think first, draw later. What are the client’s goals? Your practical goals and also your aspirational goals. Your dreams? And what are the goals of your guests? What are their dreams for a day spent at your destination? And how about government agencies? Because we cant succeed if we cant get our plans approved.

Next, we think about the obstacles. What is in-between you and your dream? A challenging site? Money? Market trends? Codes and regulations? Finally, we Strategize. What strategies can we best use to reach your goals? Achieve your Dreams? Create Strategies for Success. Think First.
