At Rivers Agency, there’s a science to our art. Beyond attention-grabbing, lively demonstrations of skill, our illustrations play a key, calculated role in brand storytelling. From custom lettering to hand-drawn comics, digitally animated characters and more, our team’s range is wide and versatile.

Illustrations make posters pop, breathe life into brochures and add volumes to advertising. They can take the lead on a web design concept or skillfully supplement special services or editorial content.

Vestrics, a developer of analytic software for HR professionals, came to us for the launch of their latest platform, Vision, with one goal – make their product fun and accessible. We love a good challenge, and what we delivered was our first full-scale animated video, produced completely in-house.

A truly collaborative effort by our amazing, diversely talented team, the video is a playful fast-paced introduction to the world of HR statistics that features an amiable superhero conceived to humanize the number-crunching software. Not that we’re expecting a call from the Academy, but this one was a hit!
