Simon Yu, AIA, LEED AP, NCARB
Simon is the founding member of Simon Design Group.
Simon is a registered architect in 3 states and brings extensive background in retail strategy and design. With more than 20 years of professional experience, he has worked on some very notable projects in the Chicago and Denver areas.
His recent emphasis has been on Automotive and Retail, with particular focus on Retail Rollout. Automotive brands have included General Motors (Chevrolet, Buick, GMC), Acura, Chrysler, Honda, Mercedes Benz, Porsche, Toyota, among many others. Retail roll-out clients have included brands such as Arby’s, Bank One, Banana Republic, Enterprise Rent-A-Car, Gap, McDonald’s, and Starbucks.
After many wonderful years of good work at Gensler, Simon founded Simon Design Group at the request of several clients, with the seminal idea that design should be generated by listening to clients, caring about client needs, and treating people with respect.
Simon’s primary role for most of clients is to integrate research, design, project delivery, and account management. Throughout the design process, Simon works diligently to listen and maximize return on investment by designing sensible and beautiful projects.
Simon enjoys taking photographs, training for triathlons, and volunteering at local charity ministries.
