Formation (The Woodlands, Texas) relaunched its website and hired Shawn Wright as Creative Director.
The new website embodies Formation's mission of "making sense of the built environment" by illustrating the firm's research and creative process. Visitors can also gain personal insights into the people and culture of Formation and see its work in wayfinding, interiors and exterior signage, and donor recognition.
Formation has grown its studio with the addition of Shawn Wright as Creative Director. Shawn was previously studio leader for PDR Architects' Visual Communications Team, providing environmental graphic design, wayfinding, and signage for PDR's international design office. Throughout his career, he has contributed to projects for such high-profile clients as Murphy Oil, BG Group, Calpine, IOL, and others.
Shawn has more than a decade of industry experience in wayfinding and signage, having worked as a senior designer at FMG, where he specialized in projects for the healthcare industry, and as a designer for the Douglas Group. He also worked as an exhibition designer for the Houston Museum of Natural Science and was the founder and owner of Next Design, a service-based company specializing in signage and wayfinding for corporate, healthcare, residential, and mixed-use development clients. Shawn is also a leading practitioner for Sketch-up (the open-source 3D modeling software). He has beta-tested and assisted with developing capabilities for 3D modeling programs.
