Our Chicago design services have a proven process

Initial Consult
and Proposal

During your initial consultation, we'll discuss your needs, determine if we're a potential fit, and present you with a custom proposal.

We discuss your needs and goals in a 30-minute complimentary consultation.

You'll receive a detailed proposal, including inspiration photos based on what we believe you're looking for and cost estimates for the project.

If you decide to proceed with partnering with us, you'll e-sign the proposal and submit a deposit to get started—no paper, no hassle.

and Onboarding

We understand that every business is unique, and so are its design needs. In the discovery stage, we define and articulate your design requirements, preferences, and long-term objectives.

Our team is curious about your challenges, committed to your ROI, and driven to achieve your vision. In a 90-minute onboarding session, we’ll conduct a deep-dive exploration into your goals and dreams for your Chicago design. In-person is best, but we can also meet via video call through the HHDesigners app.

Our creative team, led by our Executive Vision Director, crafts a custom design brief that reflects the project vision, goals, timeline, scope, and budget.

Our Vision Director will walk you through the brief and explain what you can expect in detail, so there are no surprises along the way.

and Schematic Design

We begin every design with meticulous research and in-depth analysis. With your goals top of mind, our team designs a space to attract potential clients, visitors, or buyers.

Through extensive industry and market research, we provide recommendations that align with the preferences and tastes of your client demographic.

We create a functional floor and furniture plan that not only maximizes the impact of your design, but also ensures a flow that perfectly serves your team, tasks, and trade.

We develop a schematic design, including the colors, styles, and materials best suited to your space.

We conduct a thorough financial review to ensure that the design elements we've chosen align with your allocated budget, and present the floor plans and schematic design for your approval.

and FF&E

We know how important it is to be able to visualize what your Chicago design will look like before the work begins. Our masterful renderings make you feel like you're already there, so you know exactly what to look forward to.

We present beautiful 3D renderings to offer a flawless peek and real-time view of your future space.

We select the FF&E (furniture, fixtures, and equipment) that work best for your space, and provide sample materials when possible to give you a physical feel for your design.

We develop a schematic design, including the colors, styles, and materials best suited to your space.

Every product is spec'd beforehand, eliminating all guesswork regarding what material should be used or how much of it is needed. (We only spec national brands, so they are easier to get and distribute anywhere in the world.)

The Spec Book

It's time for the big reveal. Your very own Spec Book is a comprehensive book of design plans tailored to inform and direct your Chicago architects, contractors, and builders at every step of the construction process.

Receive a beautifully designed hard copy, as well as PDF and CAD drawings to share with your contractor.

From precise ID drawings to 3D renderings, from elevation and lighting plans to floor plans to fixtures, everything you need is always at your fingertips.

After the spec book is completed, we’re available to answer any questions or concerns you or your contractor have about your design. We are as thrilled as you are to see your vision come alive.

We're known for ROI-driven design, no matter the type of project in Chicago

Whether it’s healthcare or hospitality or retail, we have the experience and know-how to make it happen.

How much do your Chicago design services cost?

Every building and structure is different. Variables, such as square footage, fixtures, materials, and your design preferences go into calculating a quote that is conscientious of both your budget and your business strategy.

We’ll take you through the design estimate line by line, revising as needed, until we've achieved your design wants and needs with your allotted budget.
