The Story of a New Startup
What’s in a name?
The goal was to create a name that would hold it’s own for both a manufacturer as well as a future consumer retail entity. The company’s initial plan was to design and produce authentically unique furniture and decor collections for every part of the home.
After several weeks of playing with words and the emotional cues those words created, we came across the word Plank and the word Hide… After testing repsonse with a broad demographic of potential target consumers, we knew we had a hit.
Then came the brandable typeface and plaque logo that would become the foundation on which to build a brand. The keywords for the company were defined as: Authentic,
A brand is born.
Our creative team at W/Group Create conjured up the idea of Plank&Hide Co. emanating from an authentic turn of the century old brick factory probably located somewhere on the south side of Chicago… a magical place and time where creative, authentic craftsmanship was the cornerstone in the design and fabrication of trend setting home decor solutions.
We then set out to build a flagship permanent showroom at the Las Vegas Market. What began as a ficticous factory reminiscent of a turn of the century old brick and steel factory was concepted and then built with the support of a team of very talented craftsmen. With a 20 ft. themed gathering bar as a centerpiece surrounded by rusted steel, aged wood and iron embellishments, we wrapped an image laden and styled interior showroom with aged white brick columns crowned with steel channel and iron transom windows. Custom doors and desks were accented with antique fire hydrants and aged wood and steel details.

If design isn’t profitable, then it’s art.
This world is but a canvas to our imagination.
A common mistake that people make when trying to design something completely foolproof is to underestimate the ingenuity of complete fools.
You can’t depend on your eyes when your imagination is out of focus.
Art is solving problems that cannot be formulated before they have been solved. The shaping of the question is part of the answer.
You don’t take a photograph, you make it.
The essential part of creativity is not being afraid to fail.
Every great design begins with an even better story
Accessible design is good design.
Art is the lie that reveals the truth.
Simple is good.
Art, like morality, consists of drawing the line somewhere.
Innovation distinguishes between a leader and a follower.
An artist is not paid for his labor but for his vision.
Design is the contrast of the core of limitations therefore there are no boundaries. It is simply an interpretation of creativity.
As social media grows and matures, showing a return becomes critical.
Real web designers write code. Always have, always will.
Design is thinking made visual.
The life of a designer is a life of fight: fight against the ugliness.
Whenever something is engineered as complex, it is designed to keep you simple.
You have to be interested in culture to design for it.
When you’re curious, you find lots of interesting things to do.
The ultimate inspiration is the deadline.
Perfection is achieved, not when there is nothing more to add, but when there is nothing left to take away.
Creativity is inventing, experimenting, growing, taking risks, breaking rules, making mistakes, and having fun.
The function of design is letting design function.
Design is a fundamental human activity, relevant and useful to everyone.
Design is a plan for arranging elements in such a way as best to accomplish a particular purpose.
In nature, light creates the colour. In the picture, colour creates the light.
