THE ANTI-TEMPLATE ISN’T ABOUT US.

IT’S ABOUT YOU.

Your business, your product, your raw passion is the anti-template. This thing that you’ve dragged into existence from nothing, with nothing but your own work and sweat and sacrifice – that’s something unique, something no one else could have done.

Sam Kimelman
Managing Partner, Creative Director

After getting his BA in Literature, Sam left his East Coast home in order to find fame, fortune, glory, and good tequila in the untamed frontier of Austin, Texas. He escaped the recession but arrived at a dustbowl, where he started working as a copywriter and content strategist, until he found Rock Candy Media. In his years at RCM, Sam has proven to be one of the best strategic minds in advertising. As Managing Partner & Creative Director, Sam dreams up the big picture strategies that unlock new revenue streams for our clients, while personally ensuring that we never abandon our focus on creative, unexpected work.
