Exit Design

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.

Innovation Plaza

University City Science Center, the nation’s largest and oldest urban research park, has continued expanding its footprint. The ex;it design team was originally commissioned to create a wayfinding program to help visitors navigate the campus. However, ex;it identified a broader opportunity to connect the Science Center with the larger University City District. The 37th Street walkway—named Innovation Plaza—is now a welcoming hub of learning and leisure.

When Kaiser Permanente planned its new Antelope Valley Medical Center in the windy desert region north of Los Angeles, it envisioned more than a place for sick people. Kaiser and local residents wanted a “total health environment” and a community gathering space. A unique partnership between two experience design firms resulted in a super-scaled public art program that connects people, place and experience by telling the community’s story.
