We love the immediate and lasting difference our work makes for our clients, for their customers, for the world. We grow businesses, tell stories, meet challenges, exceed expectations, change lives, explore wonder, help clients sleep well at night.
We’re a creative strategic firm whose approach is built on collaboration, commitment and caring. We work with companies that value design thinking, that appreciate design’s role as a competitive advantage, that embrace teamwork. Our clients tell us we take a big-picture, long-term view toward solving their business problems. Whatever the project, be it an annual report or a documentary film, we pour into it our passion and design thinking and energy. We make creative matter. And we’re ready to do it for you.
We’ve always been plagued by the question, “How is the world seeing right now?” To answer that question, we’ve developed a little internal passion project called #ColorOf. Whatever hashtag, whether #wonder or #taco, you can now see the colors people are using to express those moments. #ColorOf grabs in real time the predominant colors of the latest Instagram posts associated with the hashtags you choose to render. It then creates an image displaying an assortment of those colors. With the constant stream of new posts, watch how colors and moods change. Customize and tweak images with various settings! Ask your own questions and experiment with different hashtags at thecolorof.org.
Rule29’s Principle and Creative Director, Justin Ahrens, has been nominated to the 2016 AIGA National Board! In this role, Justin will be on the leadership team of the largest professional design association in the country, and speaking into the global design conversation. We’re obviously proud of Justin around here, and look forward to seeing his impact on AIGA.
Our Creative Director, Justin Ahrens, spoke at HOW Design Live in Atlanta this May. Justin’s talk was titled “Branding Passion: How to create a compelling campaign or project for social change.”
It focused on how design can be used to create positive social change. Creatives have the ability to shift perspective and to create impact. But making this impact can’t only happen with passion – there needs to be a strategic and defined process to carry the concept to real successful outcomes while not overwhelming you.
In his session, Justin went through the Rule29 approach and how projects like Wheels4Water has helped bring safe water to thousands of people in Uganda. The end goal was to provide tips on how to do your own event and see how doing these types of projects can change you, your company and how YOU see the world. Would you like a closer look?
