“Knowledge is at the heart of what we do and how we serve our clients. Our approach to practice-based research guides me to design studies and research questions that reach into the core of our clients’ biggest problems. Sharing our findings — both what worked well and what didn’t — is important because what we learn today impacts the future of our clients, our knowledge-driven approaches, and ultimately, the design solutions we create.”
