HOW WE DO WHAT WE DO.
The AKJOHNSTON team starts the design process with a group brainstorm inclusive of all departments. Intertwining a conceptual and logistical mindset, the creative team narrows down and brings the results of the brainstorm to life through renderings and a design deck.
Our fabrication team dissects these renderings into build drawings of tangible nature. They work their magic in the shop to bring the renderings to life as close to what has been presented as possible being mindful of seams, hardware, and all the small details.
Once the builds are completed, the production team handles all execution of each element. Our ultimate goal is for the rendering and the real-life image to look exactly the same and we are proud to showcase how our team works together to achieve this goal.
So many memories and what a pleasure! You are so great! YES, I want to work again with you guys next year. I am so proud of having worked with you and so happy to have met you.
