Meet Brad McDonald

Brad McDonald AIA
Owner and Principal 


Brad McDonald graduated from the University of New Mexico and started his design career in New Mexico in residential and commercial design with local firms. In 1991, he moved to California to join Walt Disney Imagineering, working on projects from the design studio to the field.  His portfolio encompasses theaters, hotels and office buildings as well as Thea Award winning themed attractions, rides and restaurants.

Brad did freelance and collaborative work beginning in 2001, which led to his creation of Reveal Studio, Incorporated in 2003. Reveal Studio is a unique design studio incorporating Brad’s award winning architectural design experience and his keen insight to the environmental needs of both the interior and exterior spaces.

Brad’s combined experience and rapport with clients has proved successful in a variety of projects ranging from full scale theme parks for clients that can’t be named, to industrial buildings and office workplace solutions. 

His award winning projects include renovation of the historic Angelus Temple in Echo Park, the Veteran’s park club house in Bell and a collection of unique and thoughtful residences.  One of which was featured on the Holmes on Homes show.

At the request of the Italian Trade Commission, Brad also participated in a tour of northern and central Italy to encourage trade between Italy and the United States.
