MGMT. is a collaborative design studio based in Brooklyn. We approach all projects with substantive research and a conceptual rigor that is an integral part of our process. What we like most is taking complex information and translating it into visually effective and intelligent design solutions. Along the way, our studio has learned about topics as diverse as rotational grazing, global special-ops, and the optimal temperature to grow collard greens. And despite our affection for the internet, we still believe books are for reading and love creating objects that are tactile and real.

MGMT. design is an officially certified minority and woman-owned business.

If you have a project that sounds like something we would fall for, let us know. We will be smart for you.

Alicia Cheng is a founding partner of MGMT. and has extensive exhibition design experience as well as brand and interactive design. She has worked as a senior designer for Method, New York and was the co-design director at the Cooper-Hewitt, National Design Museum. She served as a lecturer and visiting critic at Yale University and has taught at the Rhode Island School of Design, the Maryland Institute College of Art, and Cooper Union. Alicia is now serving on the Board of the AIGA/NY chapter. She received her BA from Barnard College and her MFA from Yale University.

Sarah Gephart was a senior designer and project manager at the New York design firm 2x4 prior to joining MGMT. There, she worked on numerous branding, collateral, interactive and book projects for cultural clients. Before 2x4, she worked at several New York City design firms.
