MAPstudios builds interfaces for people, products, and places.

Our approach is rooted in the dual practices of research and design, and in our capacity to generate a rich dialogue between the two. By mapping this dialogue as we work, we facilitate participation in the creative process. In effect, we enable clients, collaborators, and "end users" to gain perspective on the many ways in which they can shape the course of this process. And, as is evident from interfaces that we have developed for activities ranging from feature-film production to long-haul trucking to elementary-school education, such participation generates truly meaningful products and services.
