What we do

We are a full service, multidisciplinary interpretation design agency and we believe in sustainable, intelligent design.

We’ve worked in cultural environments including museums, historic places, the built environment, gardens and industrial sites, and we specialise in delivering innovative museum and exhibition environments.

We use rigorous intellectual planning and a good dose of imagination to respond to creative challenges.

We like to work on projects from inception to handover to ensure the creative imperative is maintained, but we also work on discrete stages of work including feasibility studies, master planning, graphic design, websites and wayfinding.

We bring spaces, ideas and stories to life.

How we work

Designmap believe in team effort. We form close working relationships with your project team to deliver the best possible outcome. We develop an in-depth understanding of the subject, collections, environment, audience, stakeholders and client brief. We integrate.

Our projects are concept driven. We believe that through ideas-based installations we can tell engaging stories.

We offer an imaginative and creative response to the brief without losing sight of the communication goals.

We work to the RIBA stages and ensure director level involvement on every project.

Who we are

We are a team of interpretation designers and planners led by Creative Director Daniel Sutton working in the museums and heritage sector.

Our core team is made up of creatives from several disciplines working together to deliver a coherent design vision.

We take a hive mind approach to briefs and we believe in collaborative working.

With over 25 years experience of managing creative projects we have the wisdom to let our imaginations lead us.
