A little about us...

Beginning in December 2014, RIVAL was founded to create meaningful design through any medium one could think of. It is our desire to help brands express themselves with a unique visual voice and stand out amidst a sea of trends with constantly changing landscapes. We work in tight collaboration with companies that need their design challenges solved, and we pour all of passion into creating impactful executions that will stand the test of time.

Our simple process

Through many years of experience we have come to an effective overarching approach that we apply to any design execution we are working on. The process helps bring order and milestones to creation, building on steps one after another until the end product is successful, informed and impactful.


We start with a healthy conversation with key stakeholders to determine what needs to be accomplished. Afterwords, market research happens and goals are set. This sets the stage for a clear strategy and brief to be formed. Having established what needs to be created, strategy and design work together to form a tight brief. This is reviewed by stakeholders and once approved, everyone has a clear picture for what needs to be crafted.


This is the moment strategy and design dive in and start crafting the beginning visual expressions and conceptual paths. We sketch, we contemplate, we dream. Collaborating tightly with our clients, we establish something magnificent we can all be proud of that is both beautiful and at the same time foundational to build upon.


After we have a great base concept and design theory, we push the design and brand expression into all avenues of communication. This means motion, print, social, web, and experiential. Each execution receives its own special attention to detail and a channel specific process to make sure our creations are as impactful as they need to be.


When everything is ready, we work with our clients or in tandem with media partners to set up all the creative to hit the masses in a well thought through, organized cadence. Timing is key and we look to make sure all the hard work that has been put into the creations doesn’t go to waste.


We believe the only true knowledge of whether something is great or not lies within the eyes and ears of the viewer. In this critical stage we keep a careful eye on feedback through surveying and social platforms and identify any details or optimizations that can make everything work even harder.
