r.o.i. Design provides a return on the design investment and creates lasting customer experiences.

We are a creative team who leads the process of collaborative planning and design

Our methods and problem-solving skills produce outcomes that are based on budget, brand, and beauty.

We value innovation, discipline, commitment, hard-work and honesty. Some of our customers have said their experience with us is different than their experiences with other designers, and claiming we are practical, “good business people”, flexible and resourceful. Our portfolio demonstrates a variety of looks and styles which supports the notion that our designs reflect out customers budget, brand and sense of beauty, not our requirement for a particular look or style
