Roof is a whimsical and spirited studio established in NYC. It was conceived by three creative partners, who at the peak of their careers questioned how there could be life after render. They concluded that it was necessary to start a new flavor of studio, and have brought their individual passions together, to create vibrant, meaningful pieces for their clients and viewers alike.
Their name is a reflection of their believe that the collaborative process between artists, agencies and clients is just as important as the final result. With all of these creative minds under one ROOF, this collaboration can facilitate the conception and production of distinct works of art.
