Mark Ross and Despina Macris established Dot Dash in 1987 as a design firm that best expressed their combined talents and skills working in graphic design, interiors, theatre, events, costume and fashion design.
They have steered the direction of the firm from a broad design field to commit to the specialised field of wayfinding design and visual communication in the built environment.
Mark and Despina believe that good wayfinding design significantly benefits building and infrastructure projects to help people engage with and better use their environments.
As Managing Co-Directors, Mark and Despina’s roles are shared in guiding the business.
