DESIGN – We believe great design is the development of an idea with a collective attitude. The process of concept development must consider space, aesthetics and the end user as beauty in design is found when a form seamlessly meets its function.
“It is the pervading law of all things organic and inorganic, of all things physical and metaphysical, of all things human and all things superhuman, of all true manifestations of the head, of the heart, of the soul, that the life is recognizable in its expression, that form ever follows function. This is the law.”
Louis Sullivan, American Architect
PRODUCTION – Whether manufactured locally or Internationally, we focus on quality, timely delivery and sustainability throughout the production process.
ENVIRONMENT – We love the environment! That’s why we do everything we can to ensure that your design considers all materials and applications that reduce your carbon footprint and the impact on our precious planet.
FUTURE – We believe that the current retail environment is a challenging one, with changing technologies, tastes and economic forces, our approachprovides an opportunity to increase your impact, stand out in the marketplace and prepare for the future of retail. That’s why our design service offers you the opportunity to focus on your virtual presence as much as your bricks and mortar.

CUPS OF COFFEE
'We Are Human' are an integral part of our retail design store concepts in Australia. They provide Swatch a consultative approach, providing retail insights in terms of store design, lighting and furniture layout to enhance the customer experience. In addition, the experience and advice of 'We Are Human' has led to better store design decision making and better financial outcomes.
“We Are Human’s” level of attention to detail in understanding both the brand and project was outstanding. There ability to problem solve, offering various solutions and always looking for the best outcome displayed true dedication. What was even more exceptional was the after service given on completion of the project by the WAH team, who on numerous occasion took the time to revisit the store to ensure all detailing was to the brand and guideline standards. Calvin Klein watches + jewelry would positively recommend “We Are Human” and would happily partner with them again for future projects.
“Having worked with the We Are Human design team on many projects, I am consistently amazed and delighted by the attention to detail they demonstrate for the aesthetic enhancement of space with light. They’re a truly unique design firm.”
WAH Design were instrumental in the design and implementation of the Officeworks Instant Printer cabinet roll-out, without them we would not have achieved the deadlines we needed to deliver for the customer.
