We are an insights-driven, ideas-led experiential and event marketing agency – a handpicked, multidisciplinary, and culturally diverse team of storytellers, artists, designers, event producers, fabricators, publicists, and brand marketers with an insatiable drive to turn client needs into creative solutions that create impact. We balance a reflective, calm, and considered west coast approach with a dogged, relentless east coast drive, partnering with clients to deliver the highest standard and client work. Our philosophy is not only to listen to, but truly hear, client needs and then dramatize their positioning in a way that is memorable and shareable, drives lasting emotional connectivity and incites action.


  • Aside from being strategic thinkers and meticulous executors, the team at RISE & SET understands the role experiential marketing plays in terms of earned media, content marketing, and sales, and can conceptualize (and execute) programs that address the ever-important integrated needs of a brand.

  • The team at RISE & SET is a trusted partner who approaches each initiative with a sense of partnership and creative outlook that is fresh and effective.  Smart, creative, responsive, nimble, and flexible – a pleasure to work with.

  • RISE & SET brings to life large-scale activations and intimate events with the same vigor, passion and focus.  I know they will do whatever it takes to go above and beyond to make our programs and brand a success.

  • Great taste level, demeanor, style sense and creative vision. They never fail to exceed our expectations from an execution standpoint.  Like many people, I am proud to call them decent people, partners and friends.
