We believe it’s worthy to envision and strive for greatness.
MAKE works on an array of projects ranging in scale and complexity. In addition to our interdisciplinary team of designers, project managers and strategists we have built network of collaborators that enable us to deliver on all aspects of the built environment.
Andrea Freeman, a founding partner of MAKE, is part of a generation of designers who believe that understanding and uncompromising attention to detail are the foundation for the success of any project. For more than twenty years through cross sector experience, Andrea has built a reputation for delivering exceptional design, demonstrating how design, properly leveraged, can act as a tool that helps drive innovation and business performance. Along with partner, Dorian Zubko, Andrea sets the foundation for each project within the studio, instilling a culture of collaboration to execute solutions that capture the essence of each client’s unique vision.

Dorian Zubko, a founding partner of MAKE, believes in pushing boundaries and challenging the status quo. Equal parts curiosity, creativity and genuine candor, Dorian has spent the better part of his academic and professional career challenging himself and those around him to consider the role of design beyond the built environment and how design impacts our experiences. With over two decades of experience defying the conventional classifications of design disciplines, Dorian’s work is characterized by inventiveness and originality, and along with partner, Andrea Freeman, sets the foundation for each project within the studio, applying unorthodox thinking to produce work that balances creativity with business strategy.
