Preparing Tomorrow’s Leaders, Today

Education Design

Transformative learning methodologies, environments and business models are changing how we educate tomorrow’s global citizens. CannonDesign’s education practice uses our resources, imagination and leadership to engage our clients and shape creative solutions for the most complex educational challenges of our time.

This evolving educational landscape addresses new learning prototypes and technological advances, business model changes with alternative funding streams, demographic shifts of the traditional student toward more diverse learning populations and learning needs, and maximizing space utilization within a highly sustainable environment.

Discovering innovative approaches

Our mission is to meet and exceed our client’s challenges. Our integrated team of designers, planners and thought leaders shape learning through our strong culture of collaboration and client partnerships.

We advocate re-establishing education’s role as a partner in the global knowledge economy, with innovation and incubation across the entire educational spectrum.

We’d Love to Hear From You.

Our integrated Education Practice is ready to support your learning mission and share the innovative ways we have helped others meet the evolving educational landscape.
