Slide 30 Years of purpose-driven designs with remarkable clients With a unanimous client-centric view of design, our founding partners shook hands in booth seven at Perly’s Restaurant, a historic delicatessen in Richmond Virginia. On July 1, 1991, SMBW, named after its founders, Will Scribner, Becky Messer, Shelli Brady, and Bland Wade, opened its doors and put pen to paper out of a small carriage house in Richmond’s Northside. SMBW was founded on the approach to build well and build efficiently. These lessons in strategic pragmatism with modern design inspiration continue with us in our practice today.
