Roland Gebhardt Design is a design consulting firm with headquarters in New York and an affiliate office in Tokyo.

We see design as a multi-faceted discipline which, when approached as a basic component of business strategy, has the power to influence customer perception, establish market position, signal change and growth, and ultimately increase profitability.

Whether the project is large or small scale, the strategy short or long term, we develop criteria to achieve concrete objectives. We work according to carefully constructed project plans and timetables, with regular reviews throughout the design process. Our principals are the project directors; the client is a member of the design team. At Roland Gebhardt Design, this dynamic is an integral part of the design process. For our clients, it guarantees individualized solutions to their needs.

Not only have our projects proved successful for our clients, but they have also proved successful for Roland Gebhardt Design; we have received numerous national and international awards for design and publication in design-related books and periodicals.
