Small but Mighty

We’re a three-piece creative band that riffs, jams and improvises to create world-class designs. Once imagined, we bring our ideas to life by conducting a dream team of consultants, fabricators, and installers.

Interact to meet the band…
Peter White
A degree in architecture from Miami University in Oxford (Ohio) set Pete on a path that has included stints in architecture, interiors, and finally, an eye-opening, game-changing, turn-your-head-around experience in the exhibit world.There he learned everything that Miami missed, sitting in almost every chair in the company. He formed White Design Studio to handle all of the design needs for his clients - from corporate identity to lobbies and from print to digital.

Today he's still honing his craft, pushing the design envelope to create memorable experiences for his clients.
Chris Stegner
Chris and Pete have been working together since, gulp,1988, when they both worked for a prominent exhibit house in Cincinnati. Almost everything was done in-house, including carpentry, metal fabrication, vac-forming, silkscreen, and electronics/animation. Work ranged from exhibits for museums and tradeshows to retail point-of-purchase (POP) displays.

Chris is our project manager and production specialist—handling everything from detailed construction drawings to authoring digital interactives and video production.
Jordan Strohl
Celebrating ten years with WDS, Jordan is a shining example of what it means to be a multi-disciplined designer. She strategizes, writes, creates, and produces. She is a fine, fine artist and quite possibly the most pleasant person you’ve ever met.
