Let’s make magic.

You want to change the world. It's time to explore creative approaches to reaching your audience and driving change.

We’re going to paraphrase Harold Clurman, who founded the Group Theatre in New York in 1931 and ignited a movement that led to Broadway and movies as we now know them. Harold said that the truth is like castor oil: it’s bitter and hard to swallow. And so we open their mouths with entertainment, and while they’re open, we pour it in.

Below are a few of the ways we’re using entertaining mediums and emotional products to help our clients stand out, drive conversations, and ultimately make a bigger difference by playing a bigger game.

Creativity at work

Conference Creativity

Vulnerability Wall

At the 2015 Conscious Capitalism Summit in Chicago, RTC hosted a Vulnerability Wall. Guests filled out and submitted cards with vulnerabilities that were depicted by RTC artists on the wall. The outcome was deeper connection that formed more quickly between participants through their shared humanity.

Company Library

ORP's illustrated series

In 2012, we were introduced to the amazing work done by this residential service provider, providing services to children and adults with severe disabilities. Rather than pour money into traditional marketing and advertising, RTC has created a library of 15 books that continues to grow. ORP has handed out more than 30,000 copies to families in need and the community of educators and health care professionals that support them.

Community Web Design

Building Community

RTC’s Community website was designed to feature RTC’s clients and all of their powerful voices. Over time, RTC has created separate community sites for clients ready to expand to their own ecosystems. Community sites house articles and resources that allow clients to build out their communities, adding thousands of members each month. As a Hubspot Agency Partner, RTC helps coordinate workflows that deepen the relationships between the brand and audience.

Graphic Novel Adaptation

Round Table Comics Based on NY Times Bestsellers

When Tony’s book first came out, it immediately became recommended reading for the entire RTC staff. As believers in the importance of culture and happiness at work, our partnership was a natural fit that then extended to other authors like Marshall Goldsmith and Robert Cialdini.
