Us: A rising force in the field of lighting design
At PritchardPeck Lighting, we think lighting is magic; it's intangible and mysterious. Lighting Design is a unique profession that offers a chance to be an artist while embodying the detail of an architect. Discovering the design story of a project and challenging ourselves to find a fresh approach is part of our DNA. Our clients include world renown starchitects and some of the best known interior design firms in the industry. We are a high-energy office with two principals that firmly believe it's not just the end result that matters. We're a place where people smile and laugh a lot at work. Really. PritchardPeck offers a unique set of benefits tailored to San Francisco living including paid commuter benefits, cell phone stipend, Dropbox accounts, the use of a MacBook Pro laptop, a flexible PTO policy, a commuter-friendly centrally-located downtown office, and the typical grown-up stuff you'd expect like health, dental, vision, and a 401K.
Residential lighting design is an opportunity to apply the unique craft of telling a story with light while getting an inside look into the lives of some of the most successful people in the world. Large-scale custom homes require a deep toolbox of lighting design knowledge, emotional intelligence to successfully connect with owners, and clever problem solving to create the designs you haven’t seen on Pinterest yet. The day-to-day includes attending client meetings, developing bespoke solutions, custom detail development through mockups, and documentation of the deliverable sets (drawings, specifications, cutsheets, controls packages, etc.) This position includes opportunities for managing our junior design team and learning to delegate to others. We provide one on one mentorship tailored to your personal career goals with room for growth. If this sounds like the right fit, we can't wait to meet you. Please send us your story and snippets of your work.
