“What is design? It's where you stand with a foot in two worlds - the world of technology and the world of people and human purposes - and you try to bring the two together ”
— Mitchell Kapor

Landscape Low Voltage Lighting- L.E.D's
Low Voltage landscape lighting has always been a consideration in the Landscape Design process. It became apparent in the early stages of Rhino Designs that the industry was in its infancy and that it was hard to find qualified and experienced installers of lighting systems. In the past it has been something that electricians have included in their service but it really is part and parcel of a landscape process. For this reason Rhino Designs decided that if you want something done right...do it yourself. Since those early days the technology and product quality has vastly improved but the design principles have not changed. A proper lighting system reflects a proper landscape design and it has to be installed with durability and longevity in mind.
The landscape at night takes on a whole new atmosphere which will not only aid in functionality but provide you with a magical world you never knew existed.
A choice was made long ago whether to go to Art School or become a Landscape Technologist. Landscaping won over but since then Rhino Designs has ambitiously pursued graphic art in many forms as part of its ambitions. Old world graphic rendering by hand the way landscape architects used to present still exists and is here in Rhino Designs. Modern computer rendering techniques are combined with this old school style to provide a well rounded service of graphic production.
Outside of landscaping, Rhino Designs has been developing graphics in many other formats such as illustration, photography, logo design, typesetting, website and signage design, caricatures, computer imaging, marketing services, promotional items and album art design and set up in the entertainment business.
