Exploring the intersection of brand, culture + physical space.

Our mandate is to make meaningful connections between audiences and needs, and between products and desires. We work with developers, visionary start-ups, innovative retailers, cultural groups and ambitious architects to help shape the way humans interact.

makespace employs strategic operators, product managers, creative designers and digital specialists. Our multidisciplinary practice lets us craft deeper experiences that transcend the typical branding, design, marketing and real estate spectrums. We’ve built a company that removes the silos of ‘expertise’ and the constrictive thinking that goes along with them. We cross-pollinate insights, ideas and disciplines to meet the challenging demands of those ever-morphing audiences.

We start with big thinking, we roll up our sleeves, and we are relentless in the pursuit of sound results.

Working with makespace.

When you hire us, you hire us. The partners at makespace are directly involved in each and every project. We are the note-takers, the strategists, the crafters and the makers. We believe that great work cannot happen without personal commitment, investment and direct accountability to results. We stake our portfolio on this, and our reputation.

The way we work.

Our guiding principles are the foundation that assure expectations are met and drive our work to excellence. It is not a manifesto, it is a declaration of intent. You can count on them —and if need be— you can call us out if we stray from them.

Focused. As agencies scale, they tend to get distracted by time-sheets, billable hours and managing overhead. We’ve designed our processes for efficiency and efficacy. Makespace is completely absorbed by the work, aiming to create genre-defining results on every project. 

Disciplined. Consistently producing great work requires adherence to a structured but adaptive methodology, a commitment to success and deeply shared accountability. We put a lot of effort upfront to distill insights and hone strategy. We work with clients collaboratively and transparently and are dedicated to measurement against clear objectives and expectations.

Ambitious. When you work with us, you can expect that we will come to the table with big ideas and thorough supporting rationale. We elevate our craft to the level that could be measured on the world stage. We’ll help you to think globally as well, even if your immediate needs appear local. 

Fearless. We believe in finding the right solution to a problem, not the easiest solution. We won’t be reckless as we step forward, but as inquisitive explorers we may take the odd leap of faith.
