For more than 25 years, Chicago-based Forcade Associates has been designing environments that inform and direct, and reflect the purpose within. We are a design firm and professional consultancy. But more importantly, we're a collection of industrial, environmental, interior and graphic designers who create tools and settings that do more than get people places, unveil an identity or establish a mood. Our focus is making genuine connections between people and the space around them. We do this through:

  • Signage and wayfinding that makes your space approachable and purposeful
  • Environmental graphics that leave a lasting impression when people interact with your space
  • Storyframing and branding that builds an experience that's true to your culture and organization
  • Master plan development that ensures a connected experience even as you evolve and grow over time
  • Human-centered design that ensures experiences happen by design, not default

You'll find our work in more than 150 cities around the world, from the tallest building in Russia to a major university in Kansas. We specialize in:

  • Corporate environments
  • Healthcare
  • Real estate development
  • Education

Our approach to working with clients is to build substantive, long-term relationships, pushing the boundaries of technology and innovation together, while never forgetting the design process should be fun and a screen can never replace a handshake.
