We make wonderful things happen.


Paris Design is a multidisciplinary creative studio under the direction of Dean Paris. Decades of expertise in design, fabrication, and event management, give us the chops to accomplish a remarkable range of innovative solutions for our diverse clients.


Broadly specialized in museum exhibits, event marketing, and brand communications – aka 3D Branding – we are masterful at integrating your content, with the right technology and strategies, to inspire audiences in any venue.  


Sustainable practice has always been native to our design process. We work with eco-responsible materials and methods to support your green initiatives.





Paris Design leads a four-step creative process to satisfy the unique vision of every project.


Design support, creative services, management, fabrication, and related logistics are flexible to dovetail with your existing resources.


We achieve value-driven solutions that cleverly tell your stories, engage your audiences and go further to inspire viewers toward positive momentum.


1. Plan


The first step in every successful project is developing the plan.


With decades of multidisciplinary experience we know how to effectively establish project parameters.

We collaborate with you to prioritize the messaging, coordinate resources, and define what’s practical and possible within the scope of work and budget requirements.


Once a suitable plan is established we do a “reality check” to confirm the viability of the program, estimate costs, and define responsibilities to move the project forward.


Core Services: 3D Brand Strategy, Master Exhibit Planning, Content Programming, Image/Object Research, Project Management


2. Design


Once the program is established, our creative services are typically handled in three-phases. Each phase deepens client involvement, distills content, information and themes while emphasizing the best options for creating engaged and impactful viewer experiences.


Core Services: Interpretive Exhibit Design, Experiential & Event Design, Graphic Design, Creative Consulting, Interactive Devices, Writing, Scripting, Editing Integrated Collateral Materials, Project Management


3. Implement


Our Staff, recommended consultants and fabrication partners share years of collective production experience and the technical know-how to transform your design into reality.


Committed to sustainable practices we naturally consider the triple bottom line of economic, environmental and social impact when implementing the design program.


Paris Design supervises production and installation to ensure design intent is met, standards are maintained and excellence is achieved.


We are adept at combining modular displays with custom components to help your budget go farther without compromising your visitor's experience.


Core Services: Fabrication Supervision, Project Management, Portable & Modular Displays, Site Supervision


4. Sustain


Building relationships that our customers can rely on is equally important to us as is our commitment to sustainable practice and passion for delivering beyond what's expected.


From simple signage to the multi-layered experiential environment of exhibitions or the multi-media glitz of a corporate event, we work with eco-responsible materials and choose production partners with sustainable practices in place.


Step four in our design process is the synergestic flow of effective communication through all our services to make your project a success.
