Welcome to the Martin Designs Website!You have reached the home on the World Wide Web for Martin Designs & Production, LLC. Please use the links to the left to have a look around. If you have any questions or comments, you can email them to me at Doyle@MartinDesigns.net. I will be happy to get back to you as soon as I can.
Martin Designs was originally founded in 1995 when I decided to pursue a full-time career as a Production Manager and Lighting Designer. Martin Designs was my sole source of income until 2006, when I took a seasonal position with Tobin's Lake Studios as an autoshow floor production manager. Since that time, I've served the live events industry in numerous roles and expanded my personal skills and experience to encompass executive business management as COO of TLS Productions, Inc. - a Hibino USA company and part of the worldwide Hibino group. Over this period, I've also gained skills in web development as a web designer, graphics designer, and coder. In addition to all of this, I'm also a writer and public speaker; when I'm not working on my house, hobby farm, and pecan orchard at my home on the Bar M Farm in NE Texas.
As an independent designer, manager, businessman, and consultant, I am happy to offer the following services:
- Event Consultation and Project Management
- Put my experience to work for you! Before you sign that hotel contract or make other big decisions, make sure you have someone on your team who understands the AV and Production needs of your project. This can be a stand alone service or combined with technical project management and/or project design and drafting.
- I can manage all the technical and logistical needs of your meeting, show, or event. From sourcing gear, operators, and labor to scheduling and shipping, let me take the stress and worry out of your production.
- Your project will be covered by both my general and professional liability insurance, so you can be confident with me on your team.
- Production and Lighting Design
- With well over 30 years of design experience, I will work with your creative team to design all the elements of your meeting, show, or event.
- I will do all floor plans, layouts, renderings, and walkthroughs necessary for the show using the latest Vectorworks Spotlight CAD software with the Renderworks add-on. You don't need to guess how the stage, set, and lighting will come together for your show because you can see it as we work our way through the design process.
- Entertainment/Theatrical Lighting Design, Programming, and Consultation
- Lighting has always been a passion of mine, and no less so now. As a lighting designer or consultant, I will work with your creative team to ensure that the lighting captures and enhances the overall creative vision for the show. I'm happy to work with media servers, automation, and other show elements to make the most tightly cued shows possible.
- Landscape and Architectural Lighting Design and Consultation
- For landscape and architectural lighting with a theatrical flair, I'm always available for design and consultation at reasonable rates.
- Business Consultation
- Having served in an executive management position for many years now, I'm available for consulting on Team Building, Operations, Sales and Marketing, Startups, and Mergers-Acquisitions. I've lived it, and I'm happy to share my experience and insights with you.
