"Design Excellence is simple and holistic. It is an enduring elegance that, to the beneficiary, appears effortless."
Rob Van Varick
Principal, Design, Insights & Strategy

With the firm since 2003, Rob passionately believes design has the power to positively impact people’s lives. His mission is to apply the right blend of research, psychology, creativity and strategy so that root causes are identified, allowing the best solution to be designed.  Well-rounded solutions require multi-disciplinary input and collaboration.  As a partner at MGA&D, Rob works with architects, interior designers, product designers, graphic designers, researchers and strategists all focused on one goal:  enhancing the human experience at every scale.  Great design is humanistic, familiar, accessible and intuitive.  If you share the same ideals, let’s make the world better together!
