Eclipse is a mix of research, design, and strategy brought together by our shared desire to enhance people's everyday lives. We do this through collaboration with partners, communities, and by helping our clients focus on people and how their experiences can be improved.

The way we work.

Every challenge is different but regardless of the type of project or industry, we embrace and apply a set of values to our work each and every day.

 
 
 
 
 

 
 

We are explorers.

Eclipse is a dynamic mix of skills, experience, interests, and expertise across diverse and complementary subjects. We work on both client and self-initiated projects that allow us to explore the world in new, imaginative ways and communicate our insight with clients and the world.
