THIS IS WHO WE ARE

He's a lecturer and public speaker, an Adjunct Fellow at Western Sydney University, and is well known in Sweden for his disco stylings.

She is the Principal of Something Blue, and eight times Australian champion in the little known discipline of camera dancing.

She is the founder of Pegsandtakk design studio, and famous for successfully training the first cat, her business partner Takk, to edit in photoshop.

 

Joshua bruce

Joshua is a pinch hitting freakish all rounder who is expert in post production, motion graphics, VFX and animation, while being a bloody handy photographer and cinematographer. He has worked with tonnes of clients as a lone wolf, or teaming up with agencies to create high tech media for record companies through to large telcos like Telstra - check out his showreel above, and his photography at JBVFX. Like we said. Freak.

 

THIS IS WHAT WE DO

 

RESEARCH

We conduct quantitative and data driven research, but specialise in ethnographic methods such as focus groups and user experience, which inform our strategy.

Content

We produce digital, video, photographic and written content for use in a range of media platforms and venues. We also create websites, and roll out campaigns using mixed skillsets and integration with client teams.

STRATEGy

We provide strategic consultancy and facilitate branding, marketing and business planning, collaborating with higher education, creative arts and community based organisations.

 
 

TESTIMONIALS

 
 
 
River Rock’s research into the creative industries was throughly informative. It combined deep statistical analysis with thoughtful insights underpinned by scholarly rigour.

River Rock have provided high quality market research support in relation to a range of education projects, and are always willing to go that extra mile to get a project across the line. They have demonstrated a strong commitment for learning and engaging with the higher education sector. Most importantly I have found them to be thoughtful, genuine and passionate professionals who have been a real pleasure to work with.
