Welcome to BDR Design Group

Bruce D. Robinson Design Group (BDR Design Group) helps clients build businesses with highly creative, cost-effective design solutions. By continually asking ourselves “How simply can we achieve amazing?” BDR Design Group pushes the limits of creativity in leisure and entertainment projects worldwide.

  • It’s our job to think like children and play all day. Since 1983, we’ve been doing just that.

    We are a team of entertainment design specialists, passionate about our work and the success of our clients.

  • Angry Birds Land at Särkänniemi

    BDR Design helped introduce the world to the first Angry Birds Land! The marketing strength & guest appeal of this area had a huge impact, boosting the park’s attendance over 10% during one of Europe’s coldest and wettest springs on record. Even the harshest of climates can’t temper an Angry Bird!

  • Angry Birds Land at Särkänniemi

    To create the Angry Birds experience, we completely renovated the children’s area with rides, themed games, a dramatic themed play structure, specialty food, a unique Angry Birds Gift Shop, and an enhanced shoreline to provide guests with first-hand experience of the stunning lakefront site.

  • Jimmy Buffett’s Margaritaville - Caribbean

    Exciting new gateways, attractions, and a more immersive themed guest experience are all a part of our Brand Enhancement Master Plan Concept for Island Entertainment Brands.

  • Goliath at Six Flags New England

    New energy and excitement were added to our existing rustic western-themed area with the addition of a Giant Inverted Boomerang Coaster. The coaster, aptly named “Goliath”, has been an exhilarating new attraction for the park. The impact of its integration supercharged the area, increasing traffic flow & doubling revenue in the existing BBQ restaurant renovated as a Sports Bar.

  • The Children’s Museum of the Treasure Coast

    This “learning through imagination” exhibit teaches children about work, conservation and recreation along the local area’s waterways. Through interactive play, children take an imaginary journey to the depths of the ocean, climb through Mangroves along the river’s edge, and enjoy exploration of the area’s resources & wildlife.

  • Ripley’s Believe It or Not! Baltimore

    Charged to develop an iconic Brand Image for Ripley’s Baltimore site, we created a unique concept that connected with the spirit of Baltimore’s Inner Harbor area, which would draw guests to the attraction. Chessie, the area’s legendary sea serpent, has sprung into action with deliberate force, wrapping herself around the entrance and claiming Ripley’s artifacts and oddities for herself!
