About Us

We are passionate interdisciplinary problem solvers who specialize in innovation strategy and experience design. We strategize with leading brands and institutions to create big, transformative ideas. Then we design the physical spaces, interactive technologies and social experiences that activate engagement between our clients and their audiences.

Our work evolves

Founded by interactive pioneer Edwin Schlossberg, ESI Design has been redefining engagement for 40 years. From our roots transforming the Brooklyn Children’s Museum to our current work with a diverse set of leading institutions and brands, ESI has collaborated with clients to design and open hundreds of cultural and brand experiences. How people engage with each other continues to change, so our work is always evolving.
