A+A works at the intersection of culture and commerce, providing experience strategy and design services for visitor attractions, museums, retail experiences and digital environments. Our work explores the graceful convergence of digital and physical realms. We begin with your story, and typically develop deep client relationships that extend over many projects and years.
Modeled more on the film industry than a traditional agency, we are a core team of creative leaders, and assemble seasoned associates on a project basis. Our office in Portland’s burgeoning West End on the 12th floor of the historic Terminal Sales Building is the physical hub of our virtual network, beloved by our clients as a place to meet, collaborate and celebrate project milestones. After over thirty years of managing multi-disciplinary, multi-million dollar projects for major museums, government agencies and global corporations, we have refined our on-demand methodologies to a fine art. Enhanced each year with the latest technology and software solutions, and complemented by a deep network of virtual services, we work seamlessly with our clients and associates undistracted by the typical challenges of managing a global multi-office firm. Our focus every day is on meeting the needs of our clients.
Teams are typically made up of professionals with skills ranging from strategy, 3D design, architecture, user experience design, graphic design, illustration, digital design, content development, research and writing. Many of our associates, throughout the USA and Europe, have worked with us for over a decade, and are committed to working independently and collaboratively. Discipline-specific associates are typically complemented by rising young talent—resumes are welcome! Our teams work collaboratively with internal client teams, often softening the typical boundaries between client and consultant.
