I expected River + Wolf to be a creative wildcard, and that’s what they turned out to be. Their level of creativity and passion for what they do set them apart from other vendors. We had the budget to hire two naming companies simultaneously. After testing the top five options presented by both companies, River + Wolf had the winning name by quite a large margin. We were incredibly happy with them.

Margaret and her team go above and beyond to make sure they conform to our expectations. They worked so hard to ensure they found the perfect name for our company. The name they developed, Stella Rising, has won praise all around. Margaret and her team gave such great rationales for the names they suggested, and it makes messaging so much easier. We’re very satisfied.

The name that we ended up choosing was one of River + Wolf’s proposals. It’s easily pronounceable, and it has been well accepted by our directors and investors. We have 17 regional offices in China, which were all able to adopt the new name overnight. River + Wolf is a very disciplined group and we are very happy with the results, both internally and as they pertain to investors.

We originally found River + Wolf on Clutch. A combination of the reviews and their area of expertise got us interested. When we did an RFP (request for proposal) with five different agencies, they were the most impressive. River + Wolf was very thorough, thoughtful, and put a comprehensively creative touch on their process. They were great!

We did two projects with Margaret [Founder, River + Wolf] and her team. It was a great process for us. We love both names. As we’re starting to prelaunch, I introduced the brand and the company to 75 of our top distributors who loved the name as well. They’re phenomenal. I highly recommend them.

Margaret’s responsiveness was phenomenal. She was always there, attentive to questions, and I liked working that way. She has been phenomenal in providing feedback River + Wolf did everything they promised to do, and within the schedule given. All feedback indicates great satisfaction with the name.

This was our first time working with a naming company. Margaret’s passion and enthusiasm are impressive. My company is a start-up, yet I felt like one of the big brands they deal with daily. River + Wolf fully understood the food and beverage world. I highly recommend River + Wolf to any company searching for a new name.

It was a delightful process working with them and I cannot imagine going through the process of naming with anyone else. I think they are one of the best in the business and knows howto assess the process of branding and identity. River + Wolf was intuitive and professional. They were always on time. I am such a happy customer that I cannot think of a way the working relationship could have been better.

I’ve never seen this level of clarity of concern for my needs from any other vendor. They are trustworthy and thoughtful throughout the naming and messaging project, and their flexibility, broad knowledge of the field,and global-mindedness are assets to the project. I trusted Margaret and her team implicitly.

The naming exercise was extremely successful and we’re very happy with the outcome. River + Wolf not only brought out the psychological aspects of the process but also opened our minds to what we were really trying to accomplish and the demographic of who we were trying to target. We’ve gotten very good feedback on the name across the board.

The brand storytelling was really important for us because oftentimes at a performing arts center, people believe that the work you do is what happens onstage. Through their messaging, River + Wolf was able to show that the work we do is in the community—local, regional, and national—which would not have been seen otherwise. We were very happy with their work.

I was so impressed with them, both from a business and perspective as well as from a creative perspective. Both my brother and I are musicians, and we felt a kindred spirit in Margaret. I was impressed not only with the sheer number of names that River + Wolf developed for us, but also the amount of care that was put into each name. They all would have been excellent choices.
