Based just outside of Toronto, Canada, the practice is driven by Kathryn Daw and Phillip Novak. We work independently and collaboratively in our respective areas of expertise with particular focus on planning and design for signage and wayfinding systems, environmental graphics programs and strategic brand research.

We’re a perfect fit for some projects, but not all. At our core we are motivated by a desire to be challenged, delighted and met by the environments we find ourselves in. Our intent is to contribute to spatial initiatives that recognize the ever-evolving spectrum of wants and needs, whether for work, study or play.
