We uncovered the Rohit Communities purpose: “helping everyone feel better about where they live.” Then, we positioned Rohit Communities around their biggest differentiating factor—their six unique Designer Interiors. With their globally inspired, all-encompassing styles, the Designer Interiors became the dramatic new star of Rohit’s branding and sales campaign.

In order to stand out from the other high-volume home builders, we knew we had to do something that was drastically different from what people were seeing in the market. We highlighted Rohit’s Designer Interiors and pushed messaging that focused on designer details, attainable prices, and purposeful design—all supported by powerful imagery that focused on the details and the new brand purpose. A complete 180 from what competitor ads in the market featured. We branded Rohit Communities as “your designer homebuilder,” creating a distinctive market position that separated Rohit from both custom builders and spec home builders. A designer home at attainable prices? New homebuyers were sure to be intrigued.
