Senior DESIGNER - ROY RODRIGUEZ
While studying Interior Design at the Fashion Institute of Technology, Roy ran the materials library of Swanke Hayden & Connell which gave him a deep understanding of design sourcing. Upon graduation from FIT in 2008 he began his career working for the famed Jamie Drake of Drake Design Associates in New York City where he shaped spaces that used only the best materials and furnishings to create lively interiors. He further developed his eye as the Luxury Brand Visual Marketing Consultant for SPS Worldwide where his clients included Mikimoto, Tiffany, Louis Vuitton, and Cartier. He understood their branding requirements and created visual store and window displays, interior furnishings schemes, and designed events that translated their brand identity within large public spaces. Roy joined CRD Associates in October 2011 as a Senior Interior Designer.
