The role of a designer is that of a very good, thoughtful host anticipating the needs of his guests.- CHARLES EAMES
Much thought and consideration was given to the location and layout of our current studio. We work out of a 750 square foot space that gives us enough room to move but not enough to isolate. The studio is in the heart of downtown Overland Park, KS just southwest of Kansas City.
Our open office creates a collaborative environment and an endless amount of interrupted meetings. If you're in the area, we would love for you to stop in.
While you’re at it, be sure to catch a movie at the historic Rio Theater right next to our office. Also, we frequent The Peanut on Santa Fe for lunch and recommend the Clocktower Bakery for afternoon tea or a pastry. Of course, John’s Space Age Donuts is a must on Friday’s.

His youth was comprised of a number of unsuccessful, yet genuinely creative, business ventures that ultimately resulted in a career in the commercial arts. He enjoys Kansas City barbecue, doing dad stuff, and playing sports more than watching sports. Matt is currently looking for a tennis partner (table or court).
