Exponent is a design & innovation studio.
We serve as an amplifier for entrepreneurs and intrapreneurs building the future. We champion emerging technologies with the power to unlock new possibilities. Our approach utilizes a thoughtful convergence of business, product and brand design principles.
Exponent was founded in 2022 by designer-turned-serial entrepreneur, Will Schneller, based on his love for all things design, technology, and entrepreneurship. We bring a human-centered approach to creating transformative experiences with exponentially impactful technologies.
Exponent is based in Des Moines, Iowa (CST). We primarily work with US-based clients.
We love working with builders of all kinds that want to utilize new technologies to unlock new experiences and business models. We’re ready to serve startups, non-profit organizations, academic institutions, and corporations.
Currently we focus on technologies with the potential to create exponential impact. These include artificial intelligence (AI), blockchain (web3 / crypto), interactive (Real-Time 3D), and spatial (AR/MR/VR). We view technology as neutral by default and seek to elevate the positive potential in each while mitigating risks or other issues.
We offer competitive rates for our highly specialized design services. Actual project costs vary based on the level of effort required. For an accurate estimate, please grab a free intro session time so we can discuss your needs.
We request an upfront deposit with payments for the remaining balance spread across mutually agreed upon milestones. We currently accept USD via ACH or Wire Transfer. Starting in 2024 we will also accept credit cards, digital wallets (Apple Pay, PayPal and Venmo) and cryptocurrency (USDC, Bitcoin, and Ethereum).
Not currently. However, we’re open to exploring joint ventures, incubations, and equity-based arrangements on a per-project basis.
