People constantly make decisions in an environment of uncertainty. Shaping the way to a better future, we implement a core message into our masterpieces to remind people what is important. Surprise makes people pay attention, think, and store unexpected events in memory. In response to the necessity to accelerate the high quality of art in public places, we facilitate better decisions by promoting dialogue, and understanding bounded rationality in community-centered design. Our differentiated capability system includes research, education and community engagement activities that increase acceptance of a change. We predict consequences and find a perfect match between artists and architecture. Trained in decision making, we generate all the feasible alternative courses of action and develop an impartial game plan for innovative projects that empower communities. We conceptualize a style, color palette, technique, and philosophy.

“Each artist has their own place in the street and a powerful message, our work is to find which street in particular and your core message”.



Why are immigrants more productive in the invention field? Because they are under the “edge effect”, pushing the boundaries of two or more ecosystems allowing a greater diversity of ideas and stimulating design mindset.
