HG Lighting Design Inc.

HGLD is a complete lighting design firm with a staff of talented designers, programmers, and production team members who are available to realize any type of production or installation, from theatrical performances to corporate meetings, concerts to theme parks, architectural displays to unique permanent installations.
HGLD’s work reflects thoughtful collaboration with directors, clients, and other designers. Our inspiration comes from a deep knowledge of art, film, and other forms of visual artistry – from the distant past to the present day – including emerging art forms that are on the cutting edge of contemporary technology. Previous designs have drawn upon the works of Hopper, Caravaggio, and Ridley Scott, among others. We are constantly seeking new inspiration and original visual imagery for ourselves and our clients.
