Swayspace is a design studio
We tackle a diverse array of design projects for a wide variety of clients: technology companies, non-profit organizations, hospitals, fashion designers, musicians, professors, artists, and publishers have retained us to design logos, marketing collateral, websites, user interfaces, books, CD cases, software packaging, tradeshow booths, and building signage.
Swayspace is a technical term describing the amount of space or padding required to protect precious cargo from interference or damage from external elements. To us, Swayspace is a safe place for design, a studio practice grounded in strong, inspired ideas and a flexible, thorough project development process.
Patrick has a marked ability to package clients’ desires in punctuated visual form. He finished a BA in Visual Communications from UCLA, an MFA from Stanford’s Joint Program in Design in 1999, and spent two years at Il Bisonte in Italy studying printmaking. Patrick is working on Swayspace’s line of bags and teaches undergraduate and graduate courses in the Industrial Design department at Pratt Institute.
Willy anchors his design process by lending organizational and conceptual clarity to the projects that come through the studio. He gained a BS from Stanford’s Product Design program in 1997, devours stinky cheese and long form non-fiction with equal gusto, and teaches undergraduate and graduate courses in the Industrial Design department at Pratt Institute.
