Environmental Design for Banks & Credit Unions

the retail space is now a multi-dimensional experience.



environmental graphics strengthen brand recognition and improve customer experience.

Consumers have been trained by savvy retailers to expect memorable shopping experiences. A trip to the bank should be no different.

reinforce your brand

Engage guests with visual cues that guide, direct, and support a positive experience.


Environmental graphics can help employees feel engaged, valued, and connected.

connect people to places

Incorporate local themes into non-traditional wayfinding solutions, connecting people to a specific place.

grow consumer engagement

The way employees engage with customers (and each other) can guide the public's perception of your organization.


point of sale merchandising

Visually stimulating environments get a reaction. Posters, brochures, custom display stands, and kiosks can capture your customers’ attention while promoting products and services. We work with marketing teams to design appropriate and enticing graphics and messages to optimize your brand in a welcoming, alluring space.

signage & wayfinding graphic design

Signage and ease-of-movement are high priority components of any retail environment where the directional flow of traffic is key. Using natural human behaviors as inspiration, our designers work with you to identify essential areas of focus, developing aesthetically pleasing, intuitive signage and directional systems.


A consistent and effective retail environment will turn fans into loyal customers.


custom display solutions

Highlight targeted messaging with frames, wall graphics, and community boards. Interactive elements like kiosks, “perks” centers, aromatherapy, and coffee stations catch your customers’ attention and keep them in your space longer.

brand strategy

By combining signage, merchandising, and other signature elements, we work to develop a comprehensive and strategic brand system that can be easily scaled across your entire network.

Every bit matters. Not only is this our tagline, but it's also a motto that we strive to live up to. The difference between good and great is minute. We can't lose sight of the small details that truly separate excellence.

Our Headquarter project in partnership with Element was a fantastic experience from design to move-in just before our core conversion and during a pandemic.

We had a vision and everyone at Element bought into it right away with their customizations. Nothing Element did was off the shelf. What resulted was a welcoming space that physically shows our connectedness to the community and helps us deliver on our mission — to provide strong financial futures for Montanans.
