Hi there, I’m Brant. I'm a designer creating spaces in Grand Rapids and beyond.


I’m a born creative. Educated in design, business, marketing and economics. I’ve worked for a real estate development firm and an architectural and interiors design studio. I’ve started my own business and worked to push a new frontier. I’ve worked on projects as small as a 500SF residential studio to a 50,000SF institutional office facility. I’ve helped an organic ice cream maker design and build his physical space, developed trade show fixtures for a national outdoors brand, threw a rooftop party for 800 conference attendees and created a community table from part of the Mackinac bridge.

Design is the fundamental soul of a man-made creation.

I renovate houses, build furniture and create artwork. I'm at home in the kitchen and enjoy a craft cocktail. My passion is design. And I believe in the power of story. I use these beliefs to connect the gap between verbal and visual identities within brick and mortar spaces; creating tactical human experiences in the physical world.

Let's design something together.
