Design Collective celebrates 45th anniversary!


Design Collective is celebrating our 45th year of service!

This landmark makes DCI the longest continuously operated commercial interiors firm in Ohio. We are celebrating this benchmark with a renewed commitment to our core mission, established by founder, Bob Valentine. Still to this day, we listen and deliver functional, impactful design solutions for our clients…not for ourselves.

As Bob transitioned into retirement earlier this year, we proudly announce that former Associate Brent LaCount has become a Principal of the firm, joining David Cooke and Gene McHugh in the firm’s leadership.

We are also announcing the renewal of our current office lease, which will include a significant renovation of the spaces we have called “home” for the past 15 years. The renovation will be completed by the end of this calendar year. We are also announcing the addition of new staff; two new members are joining DCI this month alone.

“Anniversaries are a good time for reflection and renewal.” says David Cooke, Principal, “We are grateful to everyone who has contributed to DCI’s longevity and to our fulfilling the mission started in 1969.”

Stay tuned for announcements regarding the renovation of our office and staff additions!
