Jese Medina-Suarez

Design Director, Principal

Design is strategic communication — our means to tell a story, and help people’s experiences become meaningful; hopefully even memorable.

Jese has left his mark around the globe designing projects while based in cities such as Milan, London, Melbourne and Singapore — most notably designing the St. Regis Hotel in Muscat, Oman and Four Seasons Hotel in Minneapolis, United States.

With a background spent residing in Europe, Asia and Australia, Jese truly brings a diverse outlook to his projects. He embraces the art of storytelling as the key to bringing an environment to life in a compelling way. Accordingly, he has developed an expertise in the meaning of brand in architectural and interior projects, bringing brand strategy to the very core of the design process in his work. Jese is inspired by many great artists and designers such as Carlo Scarpa, Luigi Moretti, Yves Saint Laurent, Pablo Picasso and Piet Mondrian.

With a passion for conviction, if Jese weren’t a designer, he would consider a career as a lawyer; he enjoys "making an argument in defense of a belief".
