envision+
develops ideas and design that provoke thought, interaction and smiles.

the studio was founded in 2001 by brian switzer (mdes, institute of design, chicago) and esther mildenberger (ma, royal college of art, london). highly educated and experienced in a wide range of international and local projects, envision+ originates from a traditional graphic design practice. our core competencies are corporate design, information design (exhibition and orientation), interaction design, publication design, design research and education.

our aim is to truly understand the issue or problem at hand and to develop strategically grounded yet aesthetically crafted solutions. experience shows that long-term collaborations with clients and partners lead to high-quality custom-fit designs, that stand the test of time.

today’s challenges for a greater social, educational and environmental good require a wider perspective to solve. we are drawn to complex and interesting problems that keep us asking questions and looking for appropriate solutions. this is why design research takes an ever growing role in our practice. let us help your business, institution or mission to find the magic, untold stories or answers, develop tangible representations, communicate effectively and awake peoples’ aspirations and desires.
