Promoting a design process that encourages exploration without consequences is what drives me. Ideas can come from anywhere. Creating an atmosphere that allows for this freedom of thought and investigation ultimately makes our work more compelling and provides a more rewarding experience for everyone involved.

Engaging clients in the design journey is essential. Your voice is vital as we thoughtfully deliberate and explore ideas together — a sign of a healthy design process that ultimately yields the best results.

While I have always embraced the latest technology in my design explorations, I rely heavily on a life-long passion for hand sketching to explore and illustrate in real-time what’s possible on every project.

Design Moments with Robert McClure

My favorite part of design is being able to see projects like the Grinnell College Humanities and Social Studies Complex evolve from a hand sketch to a rendering to reality.
