What motivates us is change, but not just for the sake of it.

We aspire to create more equitable, meaningful, beautiful, open, joyful, inspiring, culture-rich spaces for people to be their most true selves.

Public Access is a collective of creatives who tell stories, facilitate workshops, and conduct a heartfelt, story-rich form of design research. We care deeply about those we create for, how we do it, and to what end.

If you need ...

to move beyond the same, old, recycled ideas ...

... then we can design
fresh products and services that’ll make even the biggest cynic mouth “wow.”

a cure for corporate speak ...

... then we can craft a  strategy or vision that’s every bit as expressive as it is informative.

why your customers aren't customering ...

... then we can conduct human-centered design research with the complex, nuanced, wonderful people you're trying to reach.

humor and delight in this period of existential doom ...

... then we can be friends.

About us

We are your creative partners, hungry to tell stories and bring to life ideas and visions that can change the way people think and feel. Though change can be serious, at the right moments, we bring in humor. It breaks down peoples’ walls, cuts to the truth, and it makes us all laugh — and who doesn’t want that? We are the loveable but flawed characters in the sitcom of life. After something ridiculous happens, we turn to see if there is a camera following us, so we can give a knowing look.
 

Founded by Zena Barakat, Public Access is a collective of creatives. We bring together a team for the right blend of brilliance, joy, real talk, and cotton candy-flavored creativity for your team.

About you

stereo-01.png

You are a leader who knows more is possible.  You understand the power of creativity and storytelling. You want your team to not just dream about, but experience, the possibility of a different tomorrow. 
 
You want your organization to thrive on new ideas, not be threatened by them. You understand that humor and play are essential to creativity, and to fostering a healthy work culture for productive and happy teams.
 
You are done debating the value of equity and inclusion. It is core to your values, and you know that designing for equity and inclusion is essential, and joyful when nurtured. You are a decent person who cares about others, and you need help creating the innovative culture your organization needs.
 
You know you can’t achieve what’s possible on your own. We are your creative extended team, inspired by the belief that we can change things for the better, together.
