Hello. Hola. Привет. Salut.
Rio Vista Media Company (RVM) is a new-multimedia marketing agency located in Miami Beach, Florida. We specialize in multimedia strategy, design and development and relaxing on the beach (weekends of course). We have the ability to take a client's project from initial ideation to full development - taking a product or service to the next marketing level. Below are the design principles we follow:
Yes. We Can Do That.
We define design as creating multimedia with a purpose. As for advertising and marketing - we provide each client with design strategies to get the job done effectively such as: Graphic Design, Identities and more. Yep, we can do it.
Modern advertising screams the need for interactivity. We grew up with video games and the internet and now as adults we design video games and websites - except now we can take our games and websites with us via smartphones! TG.
We use Maya, Adobe - AfterEffects, Flash, and Photoshop, and other "cutting edge" tools to animate, visualize, and digitally build anything. Basically, if it needs to move or appear real we can do it!
When it comes to video, photos or print it's pretty much standard stuff for us - but important. These 3 areas of multimedia design play big role in promoting a product or service. In any case we do them well!

Our Clients & Strategy
By harnessing traditional marketing tactics and applying them to all types of multimedia, Rio Vista understands how to position and execute marketing plans for businesses operating in the Internet Social Media age.
Rio Vista's clients are not all BIG household named companies but rather well established hardworking small businesses, service providers, entrepreneurs, inventors and individuals that we treat as if they were BIG household named companies. Of course we have dealt with a few BIG named companies such as GE Capital, Planet Hollywood and the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics (AIAA) which involved a scientific presentation to NASA, Pratt & Whitney and Boeing. We also hold strategic partnerships with some select advertising agencies and PR firms. RVM's growth is organically grown by repeat business, long-term partnerships with successful clients and good old fashion "word of mouth" recommendations about our work and aesthetics.
When it comes to promoting a project for a client - our strategy is thorough. What ever you need. What ever it takes. Whatever is possible. Whether IT (a person, place or thing) needs to be cool, hip, modern, retro, innovative, formal, corporate, happy, sad, cute, pretty, fun, sexy, young, old, healthy, delicious, gourmet, tasty, active, slow, fast, sporty, trendy, catchy, clever, functional, political, or cultural - we can do it through our creativity, talent, experience and perseverance. Rio Vista means River View - "Where creative ideas flow and you enjoy the view." BTW. Sorry, we don't do cheesy.
Ideas don't magically translate brands into success. Talent and legwork does. At Rio Vista Media, everyday our design, strategy, technology and management teams have their targets set on the success of each project. Whether you're stepping into our Miami office, or just chatting with our design pros, you'll always feel at home and relaxed. Since day one Rio Vista Media has been on the "cutting edge" of the digital scene, we continue our goal to: Translate ideas into life with imagination, passion, and fun.
RVM will never settle for "good enough" - we will always keep innovating, succeeding and treating others as we would want to be treated.
Overall, we believe creating quality custom multimedia advertising is key to the success of any business or service. The famous saying, "you never get a second chance to make a (good) first impression. The origin of this witty expression is unclear - but one thing is clear when it comes to multimedia advertising, marketing or just life itself - the statement is definitely true and important to remember. Never the less we strive to use the best communication tools and technology to emotionally connect with an audience. Our advertising campaigns enhance a brand's message in ways that ensure it penetrates the hearts and minds of the target audience.

Rio Vista Media Company was founded in 2001 by Andy Helgeson. Andy created the company to meet the requests of local advertisers in Palm Beach County that wanted a small affordable creative agency. Keeping the overhead low, Rio Vista Media was able to create advertising collateral for local businesses and keep the doors open. The company did not officially flourish until 2006 when Jonathan Davis was appointed Art Director and COO. Jonathan's basic idea to further the success of the company was simply to have fun creating cool stuff that promotes products and services in a modern era. He achieved this by first shaping a studio environment condusive to promoting the flow of creative juices and second by networking with other talented artists, designers, technical experts and PR advocates. Since 2006, the company has partnered with other agencies, production companies and inventors to develop, create and market all types of products and services for South Florida businesses and individuals.
As of 2010, the company has moved it's main studio productions to Miami Beach, but still maintains it's original studio in Jupiter, Florida.
As time goes on Rio Vista Media has it's eyes set on expanding into the South American advertising market - so to get there we work hard and then enjoy our time off with our family and friends. Also, we are always willing to help others and treat others has we would like to be treated. This makes sense since we are all trying to enjoy life to the fullest. Thanks for visiting our site and we look forward to meeting you.
