Rick Romer Design Group

How we began


 I have been designing for the stage, film, television, and special events in Hawaii for many years.  From "Magnum, P.I.", "LOST", and the new "5-0" to the opening of the Hawaii Convention Center  along with many other events and displays.  You have seen my work!  I seek those unusual, unique and "difficult" projects using my varied experience and training to do more than just satisfy...but exceed your expectations but not your budget.

Design Philosophy


My mission has always been to create the most innovative design with the highest quality execution.  Hollywood standards require an excellence and a standard that I maintain in all my work.  Originality, visibility, and  focus are always present....and Yes, we also do SPECTACLE when appropriate!   Your image brand enhanced, your focus and visibility increased, and your design problems solved.  Never having thought "inside the box", creative solutions are  resolved on any scale with originality

My reputation is based on my success.

Our Design Team


We represent a group of  talented, creative artists and craftpersons with a wide range of unique skills.  I can assemble a custom team to create the most spectacular, unique, and affordable project for you.  We can also manage or install your existing design.

One of the advantages of having worked on a wide range of projects is knowing who to contact and where to locate those unique items to create the best possible  product  for you.
