RIVE is an experiential agency with a focus on design, video and live productions.

Our unique business model and agile approach to creative work power us to do better work, faster. We build custom multi-disciplinary teams for each engagement and deploy our Left Brain/Right Brain Process to execute efficiently.

Our Process

Our process was developed by the RIVE team through years of learning and information gleaned from hundreds of projects. We firmly believe that an iterative approach, where ideas are tested and improved upon, led by multi-dimensional teams creates better outcomes.

Instead of thinking linearly, we challenge our creative teams and project management teams to adhere to an agile methodology where process and creative are treated as one.

This process allows us to start anywhere, be it from a budget parameter, target audience, desired outcome, or wild idea.

Our Reel


After a decade working in the agency world Ned saw the creative landscape shifting dramatically. Ned came to the conclusion that the traditional agency business model was no longer working. Ned believes that great creative can come from anywhere, that technology should be used to drive cost down and efficiency up, and that RIVE’s employees, partners and clients should all have a pretty great time doing the work we do.
