Clients and dealers have to operate out of what is designed for them. Brian gets that! He has a “blue collar” background and a decade of experience in design and construction. At YSM Design, he specializes in automotive field design work. He is an excellent problem solver for unique building conditions and a master in design work for factory compliance. Satisfying factory requirements and dealers’ square footage needs is Brian’s forte. He “figures how to put a 10,000 square foot building footprint into a 3,000 square foot building.” In addition, he is capable of using specified materials to create the desired structure. As he likes to say, “Materials may break. My designs don’t.” With seven years of experience putting dealerships in urban environments, Brian not only has real working knowledge but also understands that dealerships are “organic in nature.” Nevertheless, he enjoys talking to clients since he understands great design is a product of great communication. He is based on the west coast but travels the country for YSM Design. Among his clients are Kia, Mazda, BMW and MINI. Brian has also taught an architecture studio and wrote the national image program for Autohaus.
