About Makespace:

Big thinking. Branding. Environments.

Brands exist in the context of real life. As humans, we flow from one commercial message and experience to another, rarely ever considering that they may be a ‘brand touch-point’. So we set out to build a company that removes ‘expertise’ silos and the constrictive thinking that goes along with that. Furthermore, we founded a company that responds to target audiences with an understanding that they are largely in control.

Our multidisciplinary approach lets us craft deeper experiences that transcend the typical branding, design and marketing spectrums. We cross-pollinate insights, ideas and disciplines to meet the challenging demands of those ever-morphing audiences.

The collective consciousness that is Makespace employs strategists, writers, designers, architects, and digital specialists. At our core, we see ourselves as story facilitators. We work organically between our professional disciplines because that is how we will instill and ensure fluidity and persistence in the outcomes you’ve tasked us to achieve.

We start with big thinking, we roll up our sleeves, and we are relentless in the pursuit of sound results. And that always makes for a good story.
