442 Design is a full service agency specializing in creating memorable customer experiences through master planning, strategic concept development and customer journey mapping, interior design, branding, graphic design and project delivery. Based in Edinburgh, we are mobile and responsive, working with clients UK-wide and keeping a close watch on industry trends and developments both at home and abroad.
As your strategic design partner, our focus is on creating customer-centred, operationally sound design that delivers wow factor and genuine benefits – places for people to nourish and refresh themselves, meet, work, relax, play and spend precious time in spaces which are increasingly critical contributors to the overall smooth functioning, enrichment and enjoyment of campus life.
We value collaborative partnerships and work hard to establish positive and proactive long-standing working relationships with our clients and their extended project teams, stakeholders and delivery partners – allowing us to gain a solid understanding of the context and opportunities each unique site and brief presents and work as a trusted partner to see projects through from concepts to launch and beyond. Solid relationships with our delivery partners – from specialist contract catering equipment suppliers through to contractors – means we are often called on to manage projects from concept through completion as Design & Build, a fully integrated one-stop shop.
With a strong portfolio of work in the Further Education and Not-For-Profit sectors, alongside our work across Retail, Catering, Leisure & Hospitality and Sports & Live Entertainment in the private sector, 442 bring value and strategic thinking to the table, with an emphasis on effective and efficient operational and experiential design – where the “what”, “how” and “why” combine with the “wow” to create fantastic ‘places for people’.
