On behalf of our talented team at Marquis Latimer + Halback, I am pleased to introduce the re-branding of our website and “The Sketchbook,” our new digital publication that shares an inside look at our firm, projects, and the team members that make it possible.
This, in many respects, is the culmination of our soul searching / brand identity / marketing research that we completed in this summer. In answering the questions about what makes ML+H unique, it kept coming back to the story. Although presented in the three-dimensional real world, at its essence we are storytellers. We reveal authentic stories of place across the southeast. This is the guide and ‘true north’ to how we approach every project, and we are excited to share the development and process with each of our clients and our community.
Collaborating with us on our new website and digital publication platform, has been the media firm of Create 180 Design from Orlando. Romulo and Valery have been a joy to work with, stretching us…teaching us, as only good partners can.
In our first issue, we present the Downtown Improvements District, an award-winning project that brought together residents, business owners, and the City to reimagine the streetscape experience in the heart of the Nation’s Oldest City on the eve of our 450th anniversary. We share stories of St. Augustine’sstruggles in the Civil War, the Civil Rights Movement, and the community’s quest to grapple with the complicated and oftentimes contentious history. We even bring the field of ethnobotany…plants and how cultures have used them…to the forefront. Each article is meant to share our passion for landscape architecture and the journey we are on to make the stories come to life.
