Industry: Design and fabrication
Projected 2017 revenue: $1.6 million
Milwaukee-based Design Fugitives is an innovative company seeking a legacy. The company specializes in the production of custom architectural-scale art and LED fixtures, and is focused on creating atrium sculptures, 3D wall coverings and ecclesiastic art.
The company recently hired six new employees and several additional temp workers to assist in its growth, but personal bandwidth is a limiting factor.
Design Fugitives is currently working to increase its own marketing efforts to include YouTube videos and curated short films about the company and its projects.
Its projects mostly consist of large, one-time custom pieces for companies and organizations throughout Wisconsin. Design Fugitives has designed atrium pieces for Johnson Controls International plc and 833 East, wall coverings at Direct Supply Inc. and more.
Design Fugitives plans to continue to pursue innovative design while integrating new technologies that will help the company produce art seen nowhere else in the world.
Where is the opportunity?
“We believe we can elevate the entire Milwaukee area’s status in the world of design. There is a lot of hidden talent here, and we continue to form new partnerships to harness that talent.”
