Get on the fast track        

See what we gave up our potential careers as soccer stars and hand models to do.

If clever ideas came with four tires and an engine, we’d be car dealers. If great marketing fell from trees, we’d be raking it in. But in reality, this is what uncompromising advertising looks like.


Silver Lining Playbook
Mercury Mosaics

When the COVID-19 crisis hit the states, Mercury Mosaics had to shut down their tile factory. Rather than furloughing the entire team, Mercedes, the company founder, decided to keep them on to plot out a new production process. In unprecedented and uncertain times, this seemed like a response worth sharing. Inc Magazine agreed.

Pretty Fly for an Auction Site

Creating a new brand is like when you’re headed to college: nobody there knows about the time you threw up in your 10th grade health class, and you get to establish yourself as the person you want others to see you as. All that is to say you want to put a lot of thought into how your brand presents itself, because there are no do-overs if the first impression is lacking.

SEO on 720%
Texas Materials Group

No matter what industry you’re in, the search engine optimization (SEO) of your website can determine whether it drives sales or wallows in obscurity.

No One Puts Containers in a Box

Contain’s homes were determined to stage a quiet rebellion in how homes are constructed. As prefabricated homes that not only take a shorter amount of time to build but are more efficient and affordable too, Contain was certainly bringing a new twist to the world of real estate and construction. But when we met them, their brand was a long way away from expressing just that.

The Mothers Should Know
Rehab Clinic Campaign

The effects of addiction are as wide-ranging as they are destructive to the inflicted individual. When we began working with a local rehab clinic in Austin, Texas, we used this as motivation, purpose, and reasoning to guide our efforts. Given the far-reaching and downright deadly implications associated with addiction, we set out to create a marketing campaign that would help amplify the rehab facility’s services and, potentially, save a life.

See what our clients had to say about it.


They Said

Heres what Kim Jong Un, Eddie Murphy, Courtney Love, and Tupac had to say.

  • "What Fun!! I I have a handful of companies, and the most important stuff, the web site, tech, and marketing used to be my favorite stuff. However, as the companies have grown, the lack of time, and several years with truly bad representation, left a bad taste in my mouth for the whole industry. Enter Rock Candy Media. What a Terrific Team! Annie is one cool ,crazy, & creative leader, and her team is diverse, dynamic, and driven - just like her! Instead of dread, there is excited anticipation. Instead of waiting to hear back, they are all over it! Feeding you what you need to help them, help you rise to the top. Bat taste the others left is gone now and the ride has only just begun! I can already tell it's going to be epic though, because Rock Candy Media - ROCKs Hard!!"

    - Stevie Bear, Contain

  • "We have worked with RCM for almost 7 years now and they have been a huge part of our success and growth. Annie and her team have a great creative direction and continue to come up with unique concepts that have made us a leader in Austin and beyond."

    - Koushik Shaw, Austin Urology Institute

  • " had a meeting with Annie to go over the potential for us to work together. I was blow away by her knowledge, drive, and overall confidence. She had a plan already put together and the vision to see it through. Truly a talented group, I look forward to how they can help us grow. Highly recommended.

    Update: We have been working with them for months now and they have been a massive asset. I cannot imagine working without them! Almost everything they do has been approved on the first round, simply because they speak our language and really do their homework."

    - Cub Root, Kirk Root Designs

  • "Wow! What a change. I switched my medical practice website to Rock Candy a few months ago. Rock makes you feel like you are their only client, and that the success of your site is all that matters. The team works together efficiently and handles everything in house. I also like the monthly brainstorming meetings where you meet with the entire team."

    - George Shashoua, Austin Labiaplasty and Vaginal Rejuvenation

  • "We retained RCM to provide us a comprehensive PR strategy. Scott Mise, the web developer, has been terrific to work with throughout this process. He’s knowledgeable, responsive and patient. I completely value his hard work and dedication in helping us - especially since he has the difficult task of debugging all the legacy glitches and poor coding from our prior developer."
