Design Collaborations

Creating Tangible Outcomes

Through our Design Collaborations program, we partner with organizations dedicated to strengthening the economy and cross-cultural vibrancy in Santa Fe and throughout New Mexico. We bring the efficacy of design to elevate and amplify mission-focused organizations and community initiatives.


We work with mission-focused organizations to deliver sustained positive change for our community. Through the framework of social innovation design, we utilize the design thinking process and principles to increase impact reach and improve wellbeing.

We deliver cohesive brand experience, from strategy to touchpoint development, from advertising campaigns to environments to harmonious human engagement.
