Our Philosophy

Our designs and process (and our designers) are unique, remarkable, and totally jaw-dropping in execution. Yellow Goat Design has been creating award-winning lighting, screen, and sculptural art designs for the hospitality, corporate, retail, healthcare, aviation, multi-residential, and education markets for over 20 years. You’ll be talking to the same people and you’ll be seeing the same faces from rendering to prototype to installation. Each of our Design Development Associates are certified Interior Designers and have worked at top level Design, Architecture and Engineering firms. Each of our product Designers have trained on the factory floor for at least 6 months. Our production team is made up of highly skilled Craftsman that have worked with Yellow Goat almost since it's creation. Each person uniquely understands the process of collaborative design, build, and production, and are highly skilled with a wealth of ideas and information.
