Founded by Lisa Moses, Designer and Educator based out of Denver, Colorado. Moses Operandi believes design is a practice of liberation.


We encourage our client's involvement throughout the design process, as we want to foster an environment of mutual respect so that they have a voice in the project. When this exists between client and designer, it makes possible the kind of thoughtful dialogue that will ensure the end result reflects the client’s particular values and aesthetics. We stand by our transparent process and the collaborative work we do together with our consultants and clients as it helps to develop lasting relationships. 

We believe integrating multidisciplinary theory and practice in our work is what makes possible deep, progressive engagement. We recognize the interdependence of art, design, theory, history, technology and use these elements as parts of an integrated practice in the development of our projects. We like to delve into issues concerning the structure of built form and the consequences of formal composition, tectonic and spatial manipulation. This approach to design makes possible a profound apprehension of space.

Biomimicry is a key aspect in our work, a way we seek out new ways that design can tie in with positive change. When put to practice, this ideology can connect people to the visceral aspects of their surroundings and begin to solve complex human problems. This, along with experimenting with graphics, material and structure, informs our expression of the confluence of art, design and architecture. We believe we are built to experience our immediate world in a holistic manner, and through our work, we aspire to cultivate a cross-disciplinary conversation.
