Spark

Spark creates branded environments.

With each new project, Spark's goal is to transform brand identity into experience by integrating story and space.

To provoke a unique sense of discovery and delight, our designs are always site-specific and completely custom. Spark partners with local artists, vendors and fabricators to deliver exceptional design crafted with integrity.

We've had the privilege of working on projects of all shapes and sizes, creating branded environments for a variety of commercial, non-profit, retail and hospitality clients.
