about
RISE CREATIVE

HELLO, I'M MARISA SWITZER - THE FACE BEHIND RISE. I COULD START THIS ABOUT PAGE BY LISTING ALL OF MY ACCOMPLISHMENTS IN ORDER TO IMPRESS YOU, BUT INSTEAD, I'D LIKE TO GET A BIT DEEPER.

IF YOU LOOKED BACK ON MY LIFE, YOU’D FIND 12-YEAR-OLD ME LINING THE WALLS OF MY BEDROOM WITH MAGAZINE PAGES, INSPIRED BY BOTH THE EDITORIAL DESIGN & INCREDIBLE CREATIVITY OF THE FASHION INDUSTRY. I GREW UP WATCHING KELL ON EARTH, THE RACHEL ZOE PROJECT, PROJECT RUNWAY, & MORE, COUNTING DOWN THE DAYS UNTIL I COULD GET A 'REAL FASHION JOB' IN NEW YORK.

I WAS LUCKY ENOUGH TO START WORKING IN THAT INDUSTRY AT THE AGE OF 15. from there, i was able to experience SO MANY DIFFERENT PERSPECTIVES & JOBS WITHIN THE INDUSTRY. BUT IN 2014, I found myself sitting at a desk, at my dream job at one of the biggest fashion magazine publishers in new year, and i felt completely unfulfilled. I wasn't serving anyone, i wasn't helping anyone & i wanted my career to have so much more meaning.

TODAY I SPLIT MY TIME BETWEEN ON-SITE PROJECTS, & SITTING IN MY DINING ROOM TURNED OFFICE, GLANCING UP TO FIND THOSE SAME MAGAZINE PAGES FRAMED IN THE PLACE I GET TO WORK MY DREAM JOB EVERY DAY - SERVING ENTREPRENEURS WHO EMBODY THEIR PURPOSE IN THEIR LIFE & BRAND.

Michelle Sparks | River Moses

“THE ONBOARDING WAS EXQUISITE, THE IN-DEPTH UNDERSTANDING OF MY TARGET CUSTOMER WAS EXCEPTIONAL, THE TIMELY TURNAROUND WAS INCREDIBLE, AND THE QUALITY OF WORK WAS JUST OUTSTANDING! I AM SO HAPPY WITH MY DECISION TO WORK WITH RISE.”


Emma Golden  / EMMASTHING

"MAKING THE DECISION TO INVEST IN MY OWN WEBSITE AND SPEND THE MONEY TO WORK WITH A TRUE PROFESSIONAL WHO HELPED ME REALIZE MY VISION WAS BY FAR THE SMARTEST THING I BOUGHT THIS YEAR. IF YOU HAVE A WEBSITE OR A BRAND THAT YOU’RE LOOKING TO CREATE, REDESIGN, REIMAGINE, ETC., RISE CREATIVE IS IT."
