Design Creation & Management

Whether you are starting from scratch or needing to adapt a current design into a specific space, I can create the space layout with operations and functionality in mind. Then we can choose elements, light fixtures, finishes and flow that make the space unique and branded for you. I can manage the process and line up the architect , check drawings for alignment with the brand and vision. manage the permitting and follow the design through construction for adherence to the vision. 

Design process with practical application 

Relatable and engaging design that relates to each brand and client. 

Life cycle approach engaging with materials, maintenance and operational costs. 

Managing the design process to maintain quality and consistency throughout the construction process. 


Here's what Ed had to say...

"I have known and have chosen to work with JoDee Johnson for many years. The reasons are simple. You will not find a more passionate and professional design and construction partner than JoDee. She will make you think and she will always push for the best solution to a project…whether that be the best economic, guest-experience, aesthetic solution or any combination of the three. Be aware that her positive approach and her amazingly hospitable nature are infectious to those who work around her." - Ed Bordelon | Vice President Design & Construction Cafes at Hard Rock 

Construction Management

We work with partners that can provide management software, even on site cameras so that the creation of the space can be monitored while being efficient in cost to the owner.

Brand Standards Creation & Management

When establishing a brand or a look, certain guidelines must be set for everyone to follow so that the brand is consistent and the brand recognition is there. We take the logo, marketing content, direction and demographic and apply this to the building. There are architectural identifiers that are as equally as important to the brand as the logo. This is iconic architecture. Let us put this in a manual that is easy to follow for franchisees, architects and contractors so that the brand is always consistent. 

Define architectural standards that make a brand recognizable and consistent. 

Design in variations to allow flexibility for different construction types while maintaining the brand look and feel. 

Create guidelines for rollout to franchisees or the site adapt architects for brand standards. 

Establish national partnerships and accounts for brand consistency.

We review the design and identify the key elements that identify the brand. Then we look at how the construction, facility maintenance and operations will work with the design and the life cycle of everything. We compare this ROI, the lease and the important factors to your guest and the operations team to get you where you need to be. we have a wide network of suppliers and creative vendors across the nation to assist you with your dream.

Here's what BRYON had to say...

I have the great pleasure of working with JoDee for the last 5 years. When I became involved in launching Pivotal Growth Partners and needed a Design professional to aid us in prototyping a new look and feel for Jeremiahs Italian Ice, I brought her onto the team to be our strategic resource to make that happen. JoDee is a great designer and an architect that understands the links between design, function and costs. I will continue to utilize her services and can recommend her with the highest level of confidence for any size project." - Bryon Stephens | Co-Founder, Pivotal Growth Partners
