Founded by former Vignelli Associates Beatriz Cifuentes and Yoshiki Waterhouse, Waterhouse Cifuentes Design is a multidisciplinary design
firm based in New York.
The company builds upon over fifteen years’ experience with international clients, and decades of Vignelli design philosophy, discipline, and practice.
Waterhouse Cifuentes Design takes a pragmatic and systematic approach to design across a wide range of scales, from graphic design to products, architectural signage and interiors. Its focus is on the careful integration of each facet of a design solution using an economy of means to best create a powerful and consistent visual language.
The firm moreover aims to create designs that are timeless: solutions that transcend fashion and are thus resistant to obsolescence.
In addition to running their studio, Cifuentes and Waterhouse give lectures and workshops on design practice, and collaborate on projects related to the Vignelli legacy.
