“RuckSackNY is an agency of record for American Express, and I have greatly enjoyed working with them. They deliver very quickly, and they are also nimble and able to change direction or make fast edits when the project requires. They are very responsive and easy to work with. Most importantly, they deliver big-agency results at a small agency price!”

Caryn Bonner, American Express OPEN, Sr. Manager, Customer Marketing

MARKETING COMMUNICATIONS & PR

Each of your products and/or services have a story behind them. Your story deserves to be heard. We use proven techniques to get your communications in front of your audience.

While we use a range of social media and other online approaches, we realize that traditional communications, print and media placement are all important tools in your arsenal. We are human after all. A little offline/non-digital love can go a long way, especially in today’s increasingly hectic mobile and digital world.

Fred and Natasha Ruckel back their work with creativity and enthusiasm that is unrivaled. Working with them, no matter what the project entails, is inspiring and uplifting. Openly critiquing a task from both sides, your heartfelt opinion and theirs, enables your project to be taken a level that leaves others paling in comparison. Their top priority is the amelioration of your project or idea and ultimately the foundation of a wonderful working relationship. Their expertise and experience gives everything they collaborate on the utmost advantage to stand out from the crowd.”

“RuckSackNY were wonderful to work with. After having bad experiences with other producers, we were recommended RuckSackNY to help with a sensitive project using some of our best (and most protected) clients. RuckSackNY worked tirelessly to understand our goals and put together a plan to achieve them. They are professional and accommodating with our Clients and have become someone I can depend on with all of our projects. In addition, the final product was amazing – artistic and yet right on target for what we were looking for”.
