We’re a branding agency rooted in design thinking
Founded in 2012 in Amsterdam, Rise’s journey began servicing multinational brands headquartered in Europe. When the agency moved to Toronto in 2015, we maintained our key client relationships and built a core team of multidisciplinary design thinkers—designers, copywriters, and project managers who bring a unique experience and skill set to the table, while embracing a unified approach to branding and communications.
Our clients understand their brand and business goals more than we ever will. That’s why we take a co-creative approach, uncovering their objectives and helping push their vision further.
We love learning about how our clients are changing the world. And we support them by continuously evolving our skill set in areas that are transforming communications.
With each word and every design detail, we focus on telling an engaging and impactful story that demonstrates empathy for the reader and elevates their experience of the brand.
We see design thinking as problem solving. By tuning into our clients’ business challenges and examining them through multiple viewpoints, we develop creative solutions that drive results.
