About JK Design Group – Architectural and Entertainment Lighting Designers

JK Design Group specializes in the creative lighting design for architecture and entertainment.  We combine aesthetic sensitivity with technical expertise and sustainability to create design solutions for projects of all types and sizes including: Location Based Themed Entertainment (LBE’s), Commercial and Retail Facilities, Entertainment Centers, Theatres, Nightclubs, Museums and Restaurants. We work with architects, engineers and owners to discover the best solutions for both interior and exterior lighting design.

COMMITMENT
JK Design Group was founded by Jay Winters and Edward Kaye to provide creative, aesthetic design services for live, themed entertainment and performance facilities. With Ed Kaye leaving the firm to pursue a different path in theatre design, JK Design Group has changed our focus to concentrate solely on entertainment and architectural lighting design.

CREATIVITY
Designs and concepts are created through JK’s collaborative approach.  Firm members work as part of the design team that includes the Owner/User, Production Designers, Architects, Engineers and other specialty consultants.  All design work begins with the establishment  of the conceptual theme and the production design of the attraction.  This “project oriented” philosophy produces work that supports the overall concept, not an individualized statement.

VISION
Our creative philosophy enables us to design attractions that fulfill the goals of the Client by responding to the criteria established by its theme. Then, we combine our aesthetic vision with knowledge and experience in the engineering of state of the art special systems to produce new designs tailored to each project.  We do not start with preconceived ideas and redefine the Client’s need to fit the design.

SENSITIVITY
JK Design Group can assume any degree of responsibility for the design and engineering of Lighting from inception until after the venue’s successful opening. This ensures an approach that is practical, creative, sensitive to artistic integrity while always mindful of the project schedule, budgetary constraints and the sustainability of the lighting fixtures.

PERFORMANCE
Whether a conventional or prototypical project, our knowledge of current systems and equipment as well as our artistic sensitivity enables us to design to your specific needs. From the smallest renovations and one day shows to total system design and project management, we make the magic of lighting come alive.
