Research

At HKS, research enables our designers to create innovative environments based on the best possible information and insight. A foundation that supports our design solutions, design research offers our clients an extra measure of assurance that there is sound evidence and intentionality behind each of our decisions. We hold our designs accountable to high standards by committing to assessing outcomes, opportunities for improvement, and tangible return on investment. We believe that informed intent, and meaningful (and measurable) impact, are core tenets of responsible design and innovative practice.
