Our company motto, “What’s the Why?”, reflects our core belief that design should never be arbitrary. We observed our founder using this phrase often in meetings, and the question resonated—and went on to become our team’s guiding principle.

We believe design is best when grounded in clear rationale. That’s why we start with goals, objectives, and needs — not aesthetics and trends.

By asking “What’s the Why?” every step of the way, we’re led by intention and equipped for any challenge that arises.

By scrutinizing the purpose behind each idea, we can assess its potential impact and relevance to the project’s goals. This approach fosters a thoughtful and intentional design process, enabling us to create solutions that are not only visually appealing, but also strategically aligned with our clients’ objectives.

Our company motto embodies a commitment to purpose-driven design, ensuring that our work delivers tangible value.

Our founder grew up on her grandfather’s cattle ranch in Abilene, Texas, a place that holds a special place in her heart. The bull in our company logo is an homage to those cherished memories and the values they instilled.

The bull represents strength, resilience, and hard work — all integral to growing up on the ranch.

The logo is also a nod to our founder’s passion for floral design, which was first introduced to her by her grandfather. The bull symbolizes a harmonious balance of strength and beauty, a visual representation of House of CLRK’s ethos. This is a company that strives to create designs that are not only elegant and appealing, but strong and impactful, just like the bull.

Our Values

These grounding principles motivate everything we do. They’re a window into how we operate, stay inspired, and keep an eye on the bigger picture. We’re always working toward the mission of unique productions and expert prowess — these are the pillars that help us get there.
