Eileen Jones, FIIDA, SEDG, LEED AP
Principal, Branded Environments Global Practice Leader
Perkins&Will | Chicago, Illinois

Seeking inspiration in the most remote places, Eileen does extensive trekking and hiking all over the world. She enjoys exploring the influence that natural systems can have on design, and the stories they might evoke.

How does this relate to brand? Creating a sense of place where people can have an experience that resonates and is relevant to them is very important to Eileen.  The built world provides a sincere opportunity to engage and connect people. Through the arrangement of the environment and the movement from one space to another, Eileen’s purpose is to create places where people have an experience that is personal, meaningful and relevant to them – places where values, culture and vision come to life, and connect us all.

Eileen’s ambition comes full circle. In addition to designing world-class branded environments, she serves on various University boards, keen on doing her part to teach and connect with future generations of design professionals.  She believes in the importance of learning from each other, and in the intersection of wisdom and new ideas. As the world continues to evolve, so must we.
