A melting pot of dynamic talent leveraging the inspirational surroundings of Southern California.
WATG’s first foray outside of Hawaii was our Newport Beach office which opened in 1981. As demand for our work increased, Costa Mesa, Irvine, and Marina del Rey offices swiftly followed. In 2006, we had the opportunity to bring our Southern California design teams together in one location in Irvine—the strategic hub of our global family. In 2023, we moved location to Tustin Flight, a thoughtfully designed office campus. It was the first in California built specifically for creatives, boasting neighborhood-like retail areas, a food hall, indoor and outdoor meeting, and fitness facilities, and a conference center.
