J&D Design help clients add value to developments by identifying the cultural values of the location, combining our vision and aspiration for positive transformation. We bring a creative approach to designing a placemaking scheme that capitalises on local assets of the area through cultural and economic activity.

Our aim is to create public spaces that promote people’s health, happiness and well-being, by increasing public enjoyment of the area and celebrating local heritage and cultural diversity.  We do this by establishing a framework of integrated arts and cultural programmes which can include collaborative partnerships with artists, architects, commercial organisations and local community.

We believe placemaking should be an ongoing process positioned within a cultural context allowing the space to develop an aesthetic meaning and evolve over time through its own identity, engendering a sense of local ownership and pride.
