We are an independent agency dedicated to creating transformative experiences through the art and science of interactive media.

Our solutions attract, engage and entertain audiences, express brand messages, convey narratives and explain complex concepts.

Bringing decades of experience to the practice, we’ve developed a process based on a deep understanding of technology and the application of proven design principles.

History

The core of the Giedion Kircher team has a history of creating interactive digital experiences that spans the personal computer revolution, the development of digital video solutions, the early days of the World Wide Web — through the rise of social media to the current era of virtual and augmented reality.

Through all this we’ve navigated many changes brought about by the disruptive nature of technology. We’ve also observed that in the midst of the dynamism some things do — and should — remain consistent. From this continuing experience and learning we’ve developed the paradigms and principles that drive our process.

Today, from our facilities in Los Angeles — arguably the preeminent global crossroads of media, entertainment, technology and storytelling — we combine strategy, technology, and creativity with experienced production chops to deliver solutions that effectively and measurably address the communication needs of our clients.

The Agency

Our team — multidisciplinary to the core by design — is dedicated to the integration of the latest technologies, multiple media, and techniques both emergent and traditional into holistic solutions. We deliver experiences through video walls, kiosks, interactive exhibits, VR and more — in a wide variety of venues, from trade shows to festivals. With a broad array of delivery technology at our disposal, a key part of the design process is identifying the right media and mechanisms for a given context.

Bringing a background wth industrial engineering and software industries, the team is well-prepared to help technology companies explain complex ideas around highly technical product offerings. At the same time a background in performance art informs the creation of one-of-a-kind, dynamic, transitory but highly memorable experiences for audiences.  

While our focus is digitally-driven experiences, the world is our canvas: live events and physical spaces, environmental designs as well as digital and connected activations, immersive technology, moving images and sound design. And the range of options available to us continues to expand.

The Future

Our mission is to continue to explore the exciting possibilites that unfold almost daily on multiple fronts. We invite you to join us in this adventure. Do you have specfic communication goals in mind? Or perhaps you're just looking for some fresh ideas for a tranformational experience for your audience. Either way — let's talk — and see what we can create together.


Services

Strategy and Design

Discovery and Ideation

We help clients refine objectives and messaging, explore methods for measuring success, and identify how a given engagement fits into larger strategies. We recommend and conduct research to better understand the needs and desires of audiences. From these processes come detailed plans for creating compelling experiences with measurable results.

Experience Design

From high-level design concepts down to detailed specifications, we imagine visions for audience experiences and create roadmaps for their successful execution. This is often an iterative process, with visualizations at increasing levels of detail — describing information architecture, navigation and interaction paradigms designed to meet well-defined goals.

Development and Delivery

Digital Content Creation

From refining existing assets to generating new graphic and motion design, typography treatments, user interface components, dynamic infographics, video, animation, sound design and more — we make sure all the essential pieces are in place to convey messages and inform audiences in an engaging manner.

System Development

While a great deal of the interactive magic happens in the software realm, many solutions also involve hardware components such as embedded sensors, microcontrollers, networked devices, audio and lighting — as well as integration into scenics, staging and architectural environments.

Production

We manage the creation of solutions from initial concept through final delivery — wherever it takes us. Our event production staff has installed and supported digital solutions and associated infrastructure at venues ranging from museums and trade shows to galleries, festivals and more.

Platforms and Products

Platforms

We develop and maintain propietary platforms and processes to streamline the creation of interactive experiences. This ensures that the solutions we deliver for our clients are developed as efficiently as possible and are based on proven pipelines and infrastructures. Modular architectures and tools for content management facilitate a continuing lifecycle for many solutions.

Products

Drawing upon experience shipping several major software applications for digital media and design — and leveraging our platforms and production experience — we develop stand-alone tools to further creative endeavor and optimize communication channels.
