Bringing imaginative and inspirational design to the world


In 2008 after over 13 years as Vice President of Design for the Cheesecake Factory, Rick McCormack founded STUDIO McCORMACK with the guiding principle of bringing inspirational and imaginative design to the world. We have an unsurpassed dedication to creating exceptional design that engages and delights. The art of our designs is realized through the harmonious merging of the unexpected and fascination with functionality and practicality. Fueled by a deep passion, we are driven to lead, never follow and make the impossible, possible. Our studio is made up of incredibly talented individuals who are empowered to do their best work within a culture focused on helping them achieve excellence along with the autonomy to be amazing. The concepts, designs, and experiences that they create are what define us and will keep STUDIO McCORMACK at the forefront of hospitality design.

Based in Southern California we have the ability to do projects of all types and sizes nationwide. With over 35 years experience in Hospitality Design, we have assembled a team who are experts in their fields and among the best of what they do.
