Our Approach

At YGD, our collaborations with Architects, Designers, and Owners ensure the cohesive integration of aesthetic and message-based pieces into the greater design of the space, all while working within budget. Our mission is to design and fabricate meaningful, engaging, story-telling pieces that will increase bottom lines. Our goal is to create pieces that serve more than just a decorative purpose; they will be crafted to deliver a message that will stand the test of time. With over two decades of experience and offices worldwide, YGD has the expertise and knowledge to thoroughly assess your project and its users, and apply that analysis to create a customized, tailored design just for you. Moreover, our built-to-order process is speedy and reduces product waste, as only what is needed is produced. Our factory practices specifically incorporate waste material recycling through strategic design templates and production layouts.

Our Process

01 Concepting

As an extension of your design team, YGD will give you award-winning interior designers, industrial designers, product designers, engineers, graphic designers, expert craftsmen, fabricators and artists who will make your dream a reality. Trained under the direction of founder and design director Jerzy Lesko, designers are required to work on the production floor for six months prior to designing for Yellow Goat. This unique experience allows our team to truly understand and appreciate the materials resulting in innovative one-of-a-kind designs, unparalleled value-engineering options and easy to install solutions.

02 Design Development

Designers and architects consider us a part of their project team and include us in the early stages of schematic and design development. We design, draw, detail, and develop visuals to illustrate exactly what the product will look like in the space. We join conference calls, travel to in-person ownership meetings, coordinate with the GC and host factory tours.

03 Manufacturing

From rendering and prototyping through execution you’ll be interacting with our large, savvy team of engineers and artisans. We have unmatched in-house resources and tools, including a full metal workshop, to realize your designs. Built to order products mean less waste and more beauty!

04 Installation

The final step can sometimes be the most difficult. Yellow Goat is there to get you over the finish line. With a seasoned team of installers who have worked on the project from its conception, YGD can provide one of the most seamless transitions from dream to reality. We offer a range of installation options from on-site consultants to full-service installation.
