At Aesthetics Inc., our ultimate goal is to assist organizations in the physical expression of their mission, vision and values through art and design.
Specializing in health and wellness, our multi-disciplinary design team is passionate about creating spaces that strengthen and support the healing journey. Going beyond a standard level of service, we implement graphic design, interior design, arts programs, wayfinding, donor recognition, interpretive displays and experiential branding in the creation of unique and inspiring environments.
At all levels of engagement, our skilled and experienced staff strive to develop a deep understanding of our clients to help them express their particular brand identity. This familiarity typically extends to the surrounding community, as we thrive on facilitating collaborations between health and wellness organizations, local museums and non-profits, artists, musicians and community leaders. These unusual partnerships help to positively reinforce and promote an organization’s brand within their community.
Since 1980, Aesthetics has collaborated with more than 400 companies, including some of the largest and best-known healthcare organizations in the United States and Canada, and with numerous major architects and artists around the world. Originally established to provide art for hospitals and medical clinics, the firm has since established itself as a leader in the field of customer experience design and branded environments, which include healthcare interior design, wayfinding, art programs, and environmental graphics.
As founding members of the Planetree Visionary Design Network, we are well positioned to assist Planetree affiliates in any of their design needs.
Monte Nagler Fine Art, LLC
We positively impact people’s lives through the power and appreciation of art.
While decorative art is only decorative, fine art photography is so much more, enriching homes, offices and lifestyles.
Monte’s art is acquired by individuals for their visual pleasure in their home or office, by corporations to create an inspirational environment and by healthcare facilities to encourage relaxation and healing for the patient and a better environment for visitors and staff. His artwork is also purchased to be given as gifts to family and friends and used in recognition/ rewards programs.
Photos For Healing is a division of Monte Nagler Fine Art, LLC, and was created based on extensive research and testing done to verify the value of art within the healthcare environment. Monte’s vivid photographs, depicting nature and other imagery, now become a therapeutic entity.
The artwork can be produced as traditional photography, matted and framed or as a more customized look being mounted or printed on substrates: hardboards, canvas, tapestry, plexi, banners, glass, metal, wood, wallpaper, or backlit acrylic.
Monte Nagler’s artistic quest is to have others see the world in a finer light and to appreciate life a little more. He has the ability to make visible what others can only sense, sharing with viewers the emotional beauty he experiences. Monte’s photographs, which have won numerous awards, are found in many private and public collections. He is a noted writer, lecturer, teacher of photography and is the author of six highly successful photography books.
