About us

Principle Centered Design.

For over 25 years the multi-disciplinary team at RSM Design has created award-winning graphic connections with architecture. Our studios have collaborated with some of the world’s most noted architects, developers, and institutions to seamlessly combine branding, wayfinding, art, and graphics into the built environment. The designs span the spectrums of locations, scales, project types, and cultures to create unique experiences through the lens of environmental graphics. RSM Design is a certified Women Business Enterprise (WBE) and is certified nationally by the National Women Business Owners Corporation.

Meet Our Team

Decades of Design.

Working out of their garage apartment, Suzanne and Martin began the San Clemente studio in 1997 with one project from Walt Disney Imagineering. A nice project to begin with, but one that rapidly needed additional team members. Joined shortly by Harry, Stephanie and Cody, the team quickly grew in its collaborative spirit. That collaboration formally established Redmond Schwartz Mark Design in 1999 by merging with Harry’s architectural practice in Dallas… beginning two decades of working at the intersection of graphics and architecture.

In 1999, the studio moved out of the garage apartment and purchased the San Clemente design studio. This location was the first building designed by Korean architect Richard Y. Lim, a protege of Frank Lloyd Wright. Lim’s wife worked as a seamstress for the Wright family to pay for the internship at Taliesin West. Built in 1948, the structure was the first modernist building in San Clemente.

Balboa Park Masterplan

San Diego, California

Our design process involves a high level of participatory planning with key stakeholders. We have partnered with RSM in transforming Balboa Park’s signage and wayfinding from pretty poor toward best-in-class. The firm has provided us a steady guide and inspiration as we inventoried and mapped all of the signage in and leading to the park. Sharing our findings with our key stakeholders with RSM remains one of the most effective community meetings we have held. Their plan provides us with a contextually sensitive design that is extremely attractive to our donors and to the city’s parks and recreation department. It sets the standard now for the entire park and is influencing system-wide donor recognition, advancing design from pedestrian to best-in-class.
