We Came In Peace is a multi-disciplinary creative agency driven by human connection.
Founders Andrew Stevens & Kim Swift have leveraged a decade of experience in interior design, hospitality, event production, brand strategy and the arts, to produce big-picture ideas while building economic value for our partners and clients. As obsessive aesthetes, we pay careful attention to natural patterns of use, bringing beauty, charm, and elegance to functional environments.
Each project begins with a deep understanding and respect for context. We weave together the physical, cultural and social identities of a location/brand/idea, with smart design, strong visual identity and rich participatory programming - transforming space into place.
Human connection is fundamental our work, and instilling a sense of community is at the heart of every project. When we feel connected, our senses are heightened; we’re open to participation, immersion and discovery. We become part of a story. In making connection a central focus of everything we do, we build worlds that have soul.
Who We Are
We are a collaborative studio of alchemists who produce highly imaginative creative solutions across multiple disciplines. Our practice is rooted in a persistent drive to understand how experiences can meaningfully connect people to one another, and to ideas. We care deeply for the issues that matter to our world, and strive to produce socially and environmentally conscious work that leaves a positive impact on people and the planet.
