Phil Moniot

Phil joined BA Design as project manager and design associate in 2016.  The son of an interior designer and brother to a filmmaker, he spent his life studying the two industries closely.  Early in his career, he assisted with designing some of Los Angeles' most popular restaurant establishments, as well as the reinvention of Cap City Tavern, in Denver.  

Phil also enjoyed a rewarding career in live-event and culinary television, and brings a rare combination of skill-sets from these two highly competitive creative industries.  He possesses the ability to manage vastly conflicting personalities in high-stress environments, against the most stringent of schedules.  His eye for esthetics, strong work ethic, and ability to manage projects from the perspective of a designer/ producer combine to set him apart from others in his field, and offers each client the confidence that their project is in good hands, from concept to completion.  Phil can often be seen completing finish work on a project to ensure the highest standard of detail.  He has proven an invaluable addition to BA Design, as we continue to grow and build toward the future.
