Better Design Better Living™ – BDBL

We believe that good design can influence how we live and how we navigate daily life. We also believe that the simple act of paying attention to the nuance of daily life makes us better designers. Along the way, we will document some of that inspiration and share it with you here on BDBL.

We are honored to have our project, Upfit, featured in the inspiring July/August 2019 issue of Metropolis. Snag one wherever you get your magazines OR if you just can't wait... check out our story to read about Upfit!

Final sneak peak. The holy grail for individual focused work in an open office is finding the balance of visual separation from distraction without losing connection to your immediate environment...allowing an individual to focus in one moment and collaborate in another. Find out how soon...

Sneak peek #2.... This started out of a design brief that asked the question, what does it mean to be able to concentrate in an open office? Needless to say we were feelin' knit...
