Story Designed Experiences
Spaces as Stages & Objects as Extras
Brent White


A seasoned and thoughtful designer, I am passionate about spatial experiences, innovative environments and the well-crafted details that make them rich and meaningful. I take pride in the positive impact and delighted smiles these spaces and experiences draw from the people who encounter them. As an amateur student in human behavior, I am constantly intrigued with how we use and “read” spaces; correspondingly, I’m fascinated with how well-designed spaces inform our behavior, actions, and perceptions.

During over two decades in the Design industry, I have demonstrated success in designing meaningfully crafted experiences across a wide range of industries, including: Restaurant, Branded Environments, Furniture, and Interpretive Museums. I deeply value a rigorous Design process, and I thoroughly enjoy employing my extensive skills in all phases. As a Design leader, I prize honesty, collaboration, enthusiasm and optimism, and I gravitate towards teams with a balance of casual lightheartedness, team growth and individual fulfillment.  I am typically cool under pressure and adept at juggling multiple projects.
