What We Do
CannonDesign is an integrated global design firm that unites a dynamic team of architects, engineers, strategists, futurists, researchers, and industry specialists driven by a singular goal — to help solve our clients’ and society’s greatest challenges.
Our defining strength is our ability to harness creative intelligence—both ours and our clients—to develop solutions informed by a prism of perspectives, experiences, technologies and cultures. Our firm is purposely built to foster this high-level of multidisciplinary thinking, allowing our teams to assess situations from all angles and identify opportunities to improve rather than conform. This synergistic method allows us to identify and connect the best ideas across industries and geographies.
We blend our diversity of expertise with empirical and ethnographic research, immersing ourselves in our clients’ worlds to understand their needs in their context. This “in the field” approach enables us to understand how each client defines value and how it can be translated into opportunities everyone can get behind.
Together, this fusion of intelligence and research allows us to not only generate new ideas, but understand how best to apply them. It allows us to develop solutions that meet performance expectations, adapt to change, and position our clients for success. It makes us not only designers, but partners in health, pioneers in education, innovators in workplace strategy, preservers of culture, and creators of a better tomorrow.
Together, we create design solutions to the greatest challenges facing our clients’ and society.
