PCH INNOVATIONS’ core disciplines of Disruptive Strategies, Dreamtelligence, Design Fiction, Learning From and ‘Understanding. Seeing. Believing.’ are reflected in the diverse composition of inspired individuals whose collaborative work upholds PCH as a leading innovation firm in marketing, engineering and design.
Born from strong industrial experience, PCH believes in the constant recombination of proven marketing and engineering practices with the fluid, future-oriented influence of design.
We train our imaginations on the future – its opportunities and challenges. Through an interdisciplinary approach fusing art, science, engineering, tech, marketing and sales, our products and services support a vertical integration from the inception of new, unique concepts to their materialization for the marketplace.
We are the result of 250 Propulsive Pioneers: a distinct potion of talents, backgrounds and perspectives, fortified by continuous exchange.
We learn from other industries, and from one another. We enhance our scope by teaming design, marketing and engineering experts with visual artists, filmmakers, urban planners, architects, perfumiers and visionaries of all types, gaining insights through diverse arenas of expertise and generating innovative concepts.
We look not only to what has worked, but to what we’ve been told will never work. We know that ‘never’ is an illusion, as is permanence. Because the natural order continually changes, we position ourselves to embrace and emit change by searching for the 3rd Choice, which remains beyond and advantageous to our typical outcomes and options.
We apply our principles not only to our work, but to ourselves, allowing an empathic immersion into our methods for imagining and manifesting innovation.

Robert McNally wants to tell the story of the life and times in which he lives. He aims to consider the past, the present and the future all in one cohesive image, to act as a filter for the world, and produce an image that in some way holds a mirror up to anyone who may see it.
Using a pencil and paper, he crams a universe into an atom and morphs the subject matter into layers of unraveling story threads which empty out into fluent, linear, pictorial fictions.
His work can be found in a number of important collections including Damien Hirst’s Murderme collection, the Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen, the West Collection, Pennsylvania and The Olbricht Collection.
