ZDS's mission is to provide organizations with environments

that connect with their visitors blurring the distinctions between

informal learning, entertainment and retail.

The studio combines multiple disciplines from the design and social sciences into the specialized practice

of experience design: management, narrative arts, interior architecture, environmental graphics, marketing, new media and human interface for the planning and design of minds-on exhibition environments.
