Civilization is a design practice that builds identity systems, digital experiences, printed materials, environmental graphics and exhibitions that are engaging, empathetic, sustainable and create meaningful connections. We immerse ourselves in the history of design, to understand where it has been and to glean where it is going. We work on a variety of projects for public, private and non–profit clients that share our commitment to creating positive change and promoting greater insights about our world.

In addition to their studio work, they are committed to creating accessible experiences that inspire, educate and connect with the creative community. They do this with a variety of not–for–profit programs including The Design Lecture Series, their podcast - Beyond This Point, and their exhibition space - Non–Breaking Space.
