“At Ocular Arcade we work with our clients to capture their imagination, manifest their vision, and question the outcome to identify areas of opportunity."
Roderick Ramsey, a lifelong Pittsburgher, has forever been an artist as well as an entrepreneur. His digital collage art has been exhibited widely over the years and he’s a staple throughout the Pittsburgh region for his creative approach and support for the Black artist community. In college, he launched his first business, Free Knowledge, an apparel and street art brand based on his own digital art. While hawking his wares across Western Pennsylvania, Rod became enamored with the entrepreneurial spirit. After receiving an MBA he sought to marry his creative impulses with his passion for business, and launched Ocular Arcade in early 2020. The studio deftly leverages Rod’s unique artistic skills to help create opportunities for his clients to thrive and grow.
