Exit Design creates visual communications that help people find their way, tell organizational stories, and discover moments of joy.

Human-centered research is the foundation of our work. We consider each step along a visitor’s journey and identify opportunities to surprise, delight, and enhance their experience at every turn.

Through placemaking strategies and wayfinding experiences, we design moments that matter. Let’s build something new together.

'The Exit Design team embraces true collaboration and is passionate about creating elegant integration of communication and graphics within the places we design. We have thoroughly enjoyed the collaborative process from conception through completion.'
