We believe artists and creatives fuel our economy, and are integral to our lived experience. We promote awareness of the impact of art and creativity on everyday life. 




We connect the public to art in a deep and lasting way. We aim to illustrate the role art plays in our world to change the hearts and minds of generations of people.




RBA Creative was founded by Randolph Belle in 2007 as a graphic design and communications firm in 1990. Over the years, RBA has evolved and grown to include work in complementary areas through a consulting arm of the business and with multiple affiliated businesses including Creative Development Partners, a real estate development and consulting firm, and Support Oakland Artists (SOA), a nonprofit organization he founded in 2002. Since 2017, RBA and its affiliates have worked out of a co-working space for creatives, that Randolph runs with his wife Erica. The space also includes a gallery and photography studio to incubate creative entrepreneurs.

RBA is an acronym for Randolph Belle, Artist. Randolph was a visual artist in his early career; painting, and working with youth through SOA.

Randolph’s wife, Erica, joined RBA Creative in 2017 to run operations for the facility. Early on, she quickly found a way to utilize her creative skills by taking on marketing. She organized events and used social media to gain a following for RBA. Now, in addition to overseeing marketing and membership sales, she works with Randolph on consulting services, continues to organize events, and supports RBA's exhibition members. Her passion for the arts, and background in administration, and property management have equipped her well for this venture.

Erica has always been a supporter of all the arts, but her favorite is Dance. She holds a B.A. in Performance and Choreography from San Francisco State University and is a certified Pilates instructor. Through many life experiences, she's gained a combination of artistic and business skills. When she's not running RBA or dancing, you can find her hanging out with her two daughters, hiking, or gardening.
