Light is a technically difficult yet astonishing medium that requires mastery of varied and continually evolving disciplines. 


HLDesign integrates the art, science and technology of illumination to help inspire, support and refine your project’s objectives.


Our design & management work has been executed in countries such as China, Germany, Switzerland, Spain and Canada which gives our clients the added benefit of international experience.


HLDesign has the further advantage of an intimate knowledge of stagecraft, allowing empathy with performers and directors that goes well beyond the typical technician’s brief.

With a professional lighting designer on your team you will see your project's vision realised.



HLDesign integrates art, technology, and creative passion to execute the perfect project.
