Origins of Concept Design, LLC

Who are we, and what do we stand for? Glad you asked. We got our start in 2020 with Joel Clark and Ahren Rhoden at the helm. Each of them brings over 15 years of professional experience in their respective fields. Our goal; to start a Residential Design company focusing on Exceptional Service, Community Stewardship, Ethical Profitability, and Passionate Creativity.

This driving force pushes us to excellence. However, this requires that we pause and reflect periodically to ensure we’re staying true to our goals. We regularly look at our operations and seek feedback from our employees, partners, and clients. As a result of this feedback, we are able to maintain our course and improve our products and operations.

The Four Pillars of Concept Design, LLC

Exceptional Service

Joel has over 16 years of Residential design experience, and Ahren brings over 15 years of Process Improvement and Business Management experience. Therefore, together, we are working to create an efficient and effective process, get our designs into your hands, and ensure that you are absolutely thrilled with the product, price, and timeline.

Community Stewardship

We understand that businesses need to step up to the plate and contribute more towards their communities. For instance, this can be through volunteer work or financial contributions. In addition, to working with their communities in many other ways. At Concept Design, we support our local community and all of its members.

Ethical Profitability

We want to make sure that as we grow and excel as a company, we are always maintaining the highest levels of integrity in our business practices. In addition, we strive to set our pricing competitively and offer an incredible product for you.

Passionate Creativity

To develop an environment that inspires artistic and creative exploration, we seek to foster a workplace and community that facilitates this process. Too many jobs nowadays are based purely on the paycheck; too many are just working and earning money. Above all, we want everyone in our company to be inspired, encouraged, and motivated to explore new ideas because we are artists at the end of the day.

Let’s Make Your New Home!

Inspiration, it’s all around us—every building design, every space, even in the trees, rocks, and flowers outside. We are passionate about honoring the architectural trends of the past. And innovating new and unique ideas for the future. Therefore, by using Building Information Modeling software, we can quickly and accurately design a virtual model of a proposed residence, office space, or other buildings for you to view and explore. After, making changes to those models is quick. We look forward to every challenge along the way. And are ready to help you bring your concepts into design and reality!
