ruef is a visual communications design firm specializing in the production of dynamic and engaging video, web, print, and digital media, including CGI and 3D technical animation.

Some agencies think that the business-to-consumer world is where all of the cool and sexy stuff live.

We don’t.

Our professional backgrounds have all been honed within business-to-business marketing. Someone makes literally everything that we use every day, and sometimes that work or the processes involved are complex.

And telling those complex stories is what makes creativity fun.

branding & graphic design

Your brand should reflect what you represent with a single glance. It is our belief that lasting competitiveness is derived from an investment in a strong visual brand identity and a consistent approach to that brand across all mediums.

We do so much more than design logos. We develop brand strategies that align your organization's visual efforts, including brand guidelines, colors, fonts, print strategies, and more.

Before we can create a beautiful and modern design or digital media project, a targeted communications and messaging strategy must be developed.

We work closely with marketing managers, engineers, sales teams, and CEOs to gain insight and perspective about business goals, the competition, past strategies, pain points, target audiences, and more.

We take a high-level look at your goals and develop design and media strategies that support those goals. And we take your expectations and work diligently to blow them away.

about

Modern design and digital media means taking your brand to the next level. It means taking good ideas and nurturing them with video, motion graphics, 3D animation, and web design. It means looking to the future with interactive sales tools, a 3D brand, and a vision for what’s coming.

Zack Ruef, owner and lead designer (and patented inventor, award-winning 3D artist, product developer, animator, and director), had a vision in 2013 to start a design company that combines enthusiastic innovators and creatives to develop modern design and digital media campaigns. His passion to create extends to those who may not otherwise have a road to creative strategy, including business owners, companies, nonprofits, entrepreneurs, artists, engineers, designers, inventors, and more.
