Our Approach to Graphic Design, Wayfinding, & Branding


Graphics create a sense of function and meaning for themed environments. Signs put a name to a face, create an identity, weave stories, and transform generic buildings into specific places, establishing an overall design language to create a cohesive experience. Branding creates a visual language for a new product — a compelling promise activated and reinforced by a consistent brand experience.

At Thinkwell, we understand the importance of graphic design, wayfinding, and branding in creating a cohesive guest experience. The core philosophy of the Graphics Department is to create a compelling design language that upholds the brand and enhances the overall guest experience within the space, using your brand to tell your story.

Our team of experienced graphic designers covers a wide range of expertise, including brand strategy & development, wayfinding & signage, marquee design, naming, logo creation, and more.
