Our Approach

YGD collaborates with Architects, Designers, and Owners to ensure cohesive aesthetic and message-based pieces that integrate effortlessly into the larger design, while working within the budget. We design and fabricate pieces that have meaning, engage users, communicate stories, and increase bottom lines. You will have a product that is more than just a piece of art. It will be strategically designed and engineered to have purpose well beyond the aesthetic and a message that is long-lasting.

With over 20 years of experience and offices around the world, YGD has the expertise and exposure to analyze your business, understand your message, recognize the users of your space, and apply all of this to create a powerful design tailored specifically for you and your environment.

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.

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.
