I really enjoyed working with Margaret and her team. Margaret was very thorough, thoughtful, and she put a comprehensively creative touch on their process. River + Wolf’s name ideas dominated the top-20 list that was later generated by focus groups and consumer research. River + Wolf was easy to reach, thoughtful, and very helpful.

Ashley Davidson, Senior Marketing Manager, Big Fish Games

I trusted River + Wolf to deliver perfectly. And they did. We’ve gotten a lot of praise from colleagues for the logo and brand name. River + Wolf was helpful throughout the entire process, which was very detailed. In addition to the naming suggestions, they were able to offer ways for us to develop our overall branding.

Linda Yin, Marketing Director, Foxx Development, Inc.

River + Wolf was very methodical throughout the process, keeping us informed each step of the way. Their principal was incredibly responsive, and we were very impressed with their understanding of the legal limitations of naming (their attorney was wonderful) as well as the wide net they cast to present us with so many good name options.

Dana Miller, V.P. Marketing, Crisp

Their level of creativity and passion for what they do set them apart from similar vendors. Their collaborative approach yielded outstanding results. Executive-level involvement ensures an enjoyable process. They consistently create exceptional deliverables.

Perry Abbenante, President, Abbenante Consulting Madécasse Chocolate

We are fully satisfied with the name, and we are excited for our company to launch. We believe the name is creative and different without being too elusive. River + Wolf was efficient, creative, dedicated, and thoughtful. The moniker is representative of company goals and stands decidedly apart from others in the industry.

Joie Jager Hyman, Co-Founder, Hugo

I’d read a lot that River + Wolf was a best-in-class naming partner, and I found that to be very true. I doubt that many people are doing this in the world who are better than Margaret. She is extremely thorough about the way she did that, and I really appreciated that.

Chris Allen, Co-Founder, CV Beverages

River + Wolf are great listeners and delivered a name that meets all requirements. Their responsiveness and flawless project management contributed to the positive experience. The internal team and the leadership are very impressed with the results.

Lydia Brantingham Payne, Marketing Communications Manager, PlasticsOne

Thanks to their expertise and strong project management skills, River + Wolf achieved the internal goal of creating an approachable and confident brand identity within a short timeframe. Not only were they a knowledgeable and experienced partner, but they also provided excellent value for money.

Susan Scholes, CMO, iModules

The project started slowly for us because we were going in different directions, but Margaret Wolfson is phenomenal and made it a really smooth, effortless process. The professionalism, psychological viewpoints, and knowledge of the business made River + Wolf an excellent partner for us.

Maria Roberti, Marketing Director, Ringmaster Technologies

Internal and external feedback to the name has been overwhelmingly positive. Expertise, creativity, and responsiveness are hallmarks of River + Wolf’s work. Too, they very supportive. Margaret has been a real champion for my company. Compared to River + Wolf, the communication I had with other agencies felt really impersonal.

Michel DuPres, CEO, Tandem Goods

River + Wolf made a tremendous effort to ensure they met expectations and developed not only a fitting new name, but also rationale behind the name for effortless messaging. They go above and beyond to make sure they conform to our expectations. They worked so hard--even over the holidays--to ensure they found the perfect name for our company.

Marlea Clark, EVP, Marketing and Insights at Women’s Marketing Inc.

All the names were such high-quality it was difficult to just pick one. We’ve only been using the new name for about three months, but there’s already a noticeable difference in how people perceive us.

In fact, we were so happy that we used them for two company naming projects. 75 of our top distributors loved the name as well.

William Melendez, Associate Marketing Manager, Burt’s Bees

Thanks for all the great names and for such a clear and well-defined process. I will definitely keep River + Wolf in mind for future naming projects!

Bryce Goodwin, Director of Innovation, Belvedere Vodka

They performed very well. We find that a lot of marketing companies don’t understand our space since it’s quite technical in nature. Everything was right on budget and within our timeframe. We had the option of doing two rounds, but we opted not to do so since we were happy with the first round.
