We’re brand specialists with collaboration at our core

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 multidisciplinary team that embraces a truly collaborative approach to branding and communications. Each project at Rise is a co-creative experience—where your vision and industry expertise meet our passion for storytelling. The results are brand-led, insight-driven stories that are compelling and impactful, and deliver on your strategic objectives.


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.

Problem solvers

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.
