Our Story

Rogue Water was founded on a cocktail napkin in Austin, TX in 2014. The H2duO, as we have been dubbed by our colleagues, are the founders of Rogue Water. That night in Austin, we were brainstorming a video idea over dinner, and Stephanie and Arianne were surprised by the interest of the bystanders around us. By the end of the night, we had everyone in earshot talking about water (yes, water).

That night we witnessed the power of communication to build relationships, create dialogue, and transform communities. We realized our passion and personalities were a catalyst to help our industry reach their goals.

Zeek

RIP

Our logo includes a chameleon (yes, we had one named Zeek). Sadly, Zeek passed away in September 2019 but his legacy lives on as we continue to help clients win over the lizard brains (amygdala) of their audience, adapt to their different audience’s needs, and bring color (out-of-the-box thinking) to a traditionally neutral toned, risk-averse, industry standard.

Awards

We believe if you’re going to show up for work at least forty hours a week anyway, you might as well aim for excellence.
