We believe that relationships should be as open and free as the workplace environments we design. By putting people first, we promise to understand and address each client’s unique needs, delivering quality work rooted in quality people.




Same Team, Start-to-Finish.

Unlike most firms, we are not segmented into studios because we believe, much like people, designs can learn from one another. This also ensures our clients receive a seamless experience. Each project has the same, Principal-led team from start-to-finish. Our entire firm meets once a week to discuss projects and concepts; this gives projects the added advantage of receiving constructive criticism from everyone, ranging from innovative college grads to our experienced and trusty code gurus.


Innovation Encouraged.

We create an environment that fosters creativity. Our team is encouraged to join professional organizations and pursue professional certifications for advancing their career. Lunch-n-Learns, guest speakers, and design charettes happen monthly in an effort to continually sharpen skills (and imaginations) within our office.


Warm with FORM.

Making meals for the homeless, visiting colleagues with our mobile espresso bar, or even spending extra time with family with our unlimited time off policy, since inception in 2003, people have always been at the heart of our brand. Whether it is our team, clients, or community, FORM makes an effort to reach out and make a difference by promoting a feeling of “warmth” all year long. The idea is simple – when we put our talent and hearts together, we can make meaningful change with and without construction documents.



Inclusion - Advancing design by embracing and fostering diversity
Innovative - Reimagine design by embracing and driving change
Dynamic - Encourage one-another; Bring energy, ideas, and a positive attitude
Authentic - Build open and honest relationships. Be humble and remain genuine
Audacious - Stay nimble. Take risks and be open to constructive feedback

Our FORM(ula)


Creativity unites us, our different backgrounds distinguish us. We want both. Together, our ideas, designs, and conversations are better than ever before.



“It’s such fun to come to work every day to watch insanely talented, collaborative and motivated people create inspiring work environments for others. I’m so proud of the FORM team, especially how they play hard and work harder. It’s a privilege to support such an amazing team!”

Judy Shaffer

“I have never worked for a company that places such a high emphasis on my professional goals and personal life as much as FORM does. They give you the space to figure out how you can best contribute to the company and the resources to fill that role. I feel there is a holistic appreciation for FORM employees that recognizes each person as an individual and as a part of the team.”

Kimberly Davis
Marketing Manager

“It’s such an overused phrase but it really is “all about the people” that makes FORM an enjoyable place to work. Everyone benefits from the wealth of knowledge and experience that’s freely shared and it shows in the mutual respect and admiration we have for one another when it comes to professional and personal relationships, collaboration and problem-solving.”
