Zeitgeist Design + Production


Zeitgeist Design & Production creates UX-IRL®: User eXperiences In Real Life – immersive theme parks, innovative attractions, and bespoke experiences that blow away anything you could ever see or do on a screen!

Unlike our competitors, Zeitgeist has no “B-Team” across multiple offices. Our creative leaders each possess over 35 years of experience in the design, production, and installation of award-winning guest experiences around the globe. This is the “A-Team” who will oversee your project’s creative development — every time.

Zeitgeist means “spirit of the time.” We combine story, emotion, innovation, and relevancy to create cost-effective guest experiences that are timely and timeless.


What if you could hire the minds behind Disney magic to conceive, design, produce, and install your project? Zeitgeist is home to a number of former executive-level Disney Imagineers who have led creative teams for decades and invented signature technologies resulting in over US$12 Billion in successful and beloved parks and attractions in the United States, France, Japan, Hong Kong, and China. We apply the Disney standards of process, innovation, and excellence to your project for a fraction of the Disney dollar!


Unlike an architecture firm that is focused on facilities or a planning firm that is focused on a bird’s eye view, Zeitgeist is the champion of what matters most – the eye-level guest experience. We craft a rich story, compelling characters, relevant content, innovative technologies, immersive environments, and powerful emotion into something that will be successful for our clients and cherished by their guests for years to come.

Today, you’ll find concept art studios, stunt show producers, architects, and even project management firms claiming that they can “do it all.” But would you want them to? Zeitgeist sticks to what it does best and what its principals and team members have been actually doing – successfully – for decades.
