The History of Martin Sunday Lighting Design

The story of Martin Sunday Lighting Design begins with our founder, Martin Sunday. During Martin's childhood, his fascination for the way that light landed on objects, i.e., sunlight off a lake, the light coming through tree branches or the way sunlight would beam through a cloud, drew him to develop a unique way of looking at light. He studied at the University of Michigan and then took his knowledge to Light Expressions in Los Angeles, CA in 1983, where he first began working in the field of lighting design. This was the beginning of an expansive career. His experiences in this field took him all across the country to work with other celebrated lighting designers, including John Case and Ken Paulsen.

Now, with over 30 years of experience, Martin works with residential and commercial clients all across Texas and the United States to help them with their lighting needs. Martin’s philosophy is that lighting should inspire and enhance the life that it illuminates. We carry this philosophy forward in all that we do.
