Sense Information Design LLC is a New York-area design consultancy that helps bring focus and clarity to any situation. Our goal is to enable real understanding that leads to meaningful action.


We handle understanding- and communication-related challenges involving organizations, teams, products, services, and information. Our role is to provide the “understanding layer” supporting all phases of problem solving.

We map & investigate

We visualize your present, your future, and gaps in between. We conduct research to make the picture clearer.

We define & design

We help you generate ideas and make them real. We create communications to explain the why, what, and how of your solution.

We help launch & evaluate
