Damien Newman’s “Design Squiggle” shows how the design process, though a little messy, leads to great insights––and the right results.

 

Every Spark project looks different. But one thing is always the same: Spark helps its clients get out of the “squiggle.” And into a place where they’re keeping their people happy and getting stuff done.
