Before joining BRS, Marcia owned and operated her own creative
consulting firm focused on branding, signage, and interior design services. Her
firm did various projects across Denver and the front range, including Denver
Public Library, Colorado History Museum, Denver Art Museum, Children's Hospital
Colorado, Kaiser Permanente, and Arapahoe Centrepoint Plaza (pictured above).
In 1991, she was introduced to BRS, being added as a consultant
to various projects for interior design, environmental graphics, and
signage. It was Russ Seacat, one of BRS’s founding partners, who
discovered Marcia and cultivated the firm’s relationship with her. Remembering
the decision to bring Marcia on full-time, Russ explains, "As architects,
we often find that we become so focused on the problem-solving aspects of
design and planning that something is missing, and opportunities lost. With
Marcia as a consultant, she added surprise, color, and delight to the solution,
and it was decided that her perceptions and personality should become an
everyday part of the BRS team and practice."
