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 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: I have done shows in every environment imaginable with over 35 years of experience in the lighting and production industry. From small backyard parties to huge Southern weddings covering multiple acres. Huge corporate events, trade shows, and rock concerts - I've been a part of it all. For the past 8 years, I have been part of the management and ownership team of TLS Productions, Inc. First, helping the company make an ownership transition, a complete rebranding, and rebuilding the company culture. More recently, in 2018, TLS was acquired by Hibino USA. Since then, we have been working to implement the policies and management practices of our Japanese parent company as well as helping to expand the Hibino presence in the US.
