01. Shane Davis
Shane is the co-founder and Creative Director of Public Records and the organization's adjacent projects. His work on the design of PR's various spaces and experiences served as the pre-cursor to Public Service. His work has been featured in Architectural Digest, Dezeen, Surface, Hypebeast, and numerous other notable publications. Behind Shane's leadership, Public Records has become revered by the international design community as a leading force within the disciplines of environmental and cultural engineering. Prior to Public Records Shane built a Real Estate and Hospitality consulting agency focused around injecting value into the built environment through design and hospitality, after studying Design + Management at Parsons School of Design. These unique perspectives surrounding the dynamics between creativity, culture, and development informed the thesis of Public Service's cross-disciplinary approach.
