Services – OLD


We’ve never met a challenge we didn’t like. Our capabilities range from scenic design to fabrication strategy to animation (and just about everything you can think of in between). Don’t see what you’re looking for in our high-level list of services and capabilities? Reach out—if we can’t do it, we probably know someone who can.

Vision session

Before we dream up a design, we first get to know our client’s creative, social, and business vision. What are you trying to achieve? What are the obstacles in your way? The vision consultation is a complimentary exercise in active listening, where we learn (and question) everything.

Based on this conversation, we’ll help you clearly communicate the idea that’s in your head and pinpoint the unique parameters and challenges of your project, so we can move forward knowing exactly what we’re working with and why.

The Hotopp approach is a collaborative one, and it starts here.


Have a story you want to tell but can’t figure out how to? Have an experience you can see, hear, touch, and feel in your head but don’t know how to realize it? This is our wheelhouse. Design is our core competency at Hotopp, storytelling through world-building in physical and digital spaces across a wide range of mediums and platforms.

It’s one thing to have a great idea. It’s another altogether to make it happen. In both our design and planning phases, our internal teams work in partnership with a wide variety of collaborators, vendors, and contractors to take care of the logistical next steps of the project, so you don’t have to.

  • Master planning
  • Fabrication strategy
  • Labor strategy and management

Realization is where it all comes to life. Ongoing communication is a crucial part of this step—from clarifying design intent to reviewing and approving samples, from in-progress fabrication and construction to supervising the final installation to make sure the finished product achieves the creative vision.
