Who we are

An Innovative Design Firm

Our philosophy adheres to design commitment and innovation, to explore each interior design project for its unique opportunities.  It is about our relationships!! We are committed to unparalleled client satisfaction and lasting relationships.

At the heart of our organization are our LEED and NCIDQ certified designers with no agenda – creative talent that are great listeners.  Teams are developed based upon the client and the project goals. They are dedicated from project inception to completion, ensuring continuity and design intent. Great project outcomes are derived from close collaboration between ourselves, consultants and the client. We bring a fresh perspective and energy to our work.  By designing for the client’s needs, the results express the personality, character, and parameters of each organization, not a signature design of McCarthy Nordburg.

We are a diverse group of intelligent and committed interior designers who are the most innovative, talented designers around.  We take pride in seeking smart design solutions that help develop timeless, inspiring and influential projects that have a positive impact on the interior environments as well as the bottom line. We represent various brands and cultures of the organizations we collaborate with and translate them into an interior design to meet their functional, aesthetic and budgetary needs.

We believe in growth via education and training and are committed to cultivating talent through the sharing of a wealth of knowledge and actively encourage mentorship.

Client Love

McCarthy Nordburg was the clear choice as our design partner. They brought excellent listening skills to our office planning committee. Based on our unique goals and objectives, they presented smart solutions to help us translate our culture and practice into an elegant functional workspace. The new offices meet the needs of the next generation of lawyers and serve as a beautiful backdrop for the firm’s southwest art collection.

The best project I have worked on in my 12 years at Zovio and I can only THANK the great team that brought it to our vision!

When we said our ideal office would liken a restaurant or hotel, we never dreamed it could become a reality. The McCarthy Nordburg design team listened to what we wanted.

-Brent Shetler, Mindspace

A genuine pleasure to work with. The McCarthy Nordburg team took our many changes in stride as PXG was growing as fast as (and sometimes faster than) we could design and build!" "We provided the McCarthy Nordburg team with a huge challenge - take an old warehouse and transform it into a world-class facility that includes a stunning retail space, state-of-the-art fitting area, multiple entertaining options, a production facility, storage and also office and meeting spaces. They took this challenge head on and exceeded every expectation.

Working with the team at McCarthy Nordburg was a phenomenally positive experience. They have an innate ability to not just hear, but listen to what is not being said, and turn those thoughts into creative ideas. They designed an absolutely beautiful workspace that perfectly reflects the culture of Coppersmith Brockelman.

Huge congratulations to the team for the 2021 #1 RED Office Design Award. I am not surprised. Since the first meeting with McCarthy Nordburg -- I was impressed with the team and their design.
