WAXWOOD, Waxwood Investigative Group, WIG;
Est. Philadelphia 2016

Waxwood researches, organizes knowledge, and builds teams around complex art and design projects that cultivate compassion, increase empathetic listening, and widen channels of communication for shared wisdom among groups of people. We’re a self-styled detective agency that works with clients to uncover latent creative resources and strategies for addressing needs through a deep process of discovery and inquiry; a process that results in a plan for the optimized use of design budget and powerful distribution of creative project tasks.

We believe that a respectfully cultivated ecology of designers, clients and design processes (at least) drastically improves quality of life and (at most) will save the world.

We’re architectural designers, artists, web designers, graphic designers, writers and researchers. Oh, and masters of disguise.
