About

Mitchell Associates is a design-focused organization with its roots in interior architecture and graphic design services for healthcare, corporate and educational facilities. Founded in 1965, the firm has gained a reputation for excellence in creative problem solving with designs that have earned us national recognition. We currently provide consultant design services in architecture, interior design, space planning, wayfinding, signage, graphic design, donor recognition and interpretive displays.  Our talented staff includes architects, interior designers, graphic and industrial designers. To complement our donor recognition design services, we created an in-house team of specialty fabricators and installers more than 30 years ago to manufacture custom exhibits, displays and plaques.

Over the years, through our research of evidence-based practices and active participation in the design community, we have maintained professional and industry relationships that provide our clients and us with the resources necessary to implement effective design solutions.  We are committed to working in the most sustainable and efficient way possible. We maintain an extensive resource library in our design studio and consistently update this information through product representatives and research to access the most current energy saving and environmentally compatible product offerings. Once engaged with a project we work diligently to explore viable design options and cost controls through accurate budgeting and design development of samples and prototypes to avoid costly value engineering during construction and installation phases.

The staff at Mitchell view each new project as an opportunity to build long-term working relationships and have many clients who repeatedly trust us with their project needs.  Building strong relationships is paramount to project success.  We are committed to providing you with talented and experienced professionals to realize your project goals, no matter the nature or size of the project at hand.  Our business philosophy emphasizes performance and teamwork to accomplish these goals.  The deliberate and effective application of this philosophy has resulted in our ability to consistently deliver successful projects that are research based, thoughtfully designed, technically well executed, and completed on schedule and within budget.  Our approach to the design process helps lead our clients through the many complex decisions involved with the implementation of successful wayfinding, signage, donor recognition and branding programs.

We operate on a traditional architectural design studio model, with principal/owner project oversight, and individuals specializing in project management, programming and planning, conceptual design, design development, contract documentation, technical services, and construction phase administration.  Our workflow typically follows the same design phases established for other project team consultants.

Mitchell Associates is headquartered in Wilmington, Delaware.  Our 15,000 square foot studio/office building includes an extensive material resource library, four conference rooms, and multiple team workstations that contain the latest technology to support our design services.  Nearby, we have a 5,000 square foot specialty fabrication facility that is equipped to produce all of our donor recognition and display designs.
