Rock Candy Media Follows New Direction With Original Director

April 9, 2013 - Austin, TX

Fast-growing Austin-based Rock Candy Media (RCM) has been celebrating a lot of milestones lately, and has welcomed Creative Director Art Lopez back into the fold. Lopez was RCM's original creative director, pivotal in launching the brand's visual identity. Now he returns to help the agency as it takes on more sophisticated clients and intricate campaigns.

Lopez originally joined RCM in 2010, and returned last month. During his time away from RCM, the company's growth surged forward with several new clients, including Austin Urology Institute, Texas Disposal Systems, and ShoreTel Sky, and an endorsement from National Instruments' Alliance Partner Network.

"Art left RCM a few years ago and has since learned the level of coordination and strategy it takes to run a business on his own," said Jones. "He finely tunes his aesthetic to match the needs of our clients but most importantly he understands the importance of our own brands. Now he can focus solely on the creative side and RCM is better positioned to push into new territory."

Annie Liao Jones formed RCM in 2008. The past year in particular has seen RCM rocket forward, with a new social business arm and increased demand for its marketing strategy services.

Lopez said he missed the synergy he had with the Rock Candy team, and wanted to be part of the company's growth and development.

"I don't see many similar agencies around town with the same caliber of clients and success that RCM has," Lopez said. "Things have changed a lot since I left -- for the better. I'm excited about where we can take the new RCM."

Back at the helm as creative director, Lopez has been redesigning the RCM website as the company takes on more and bigger clients.

"Every new client raises the bar," Jones said. "The new website will reflect the higher-level services we engage in to do the brand justice."

Rock Candy Media specializes in sales-driven print and web design, marketing strategy and consultation, business development consulting, aggressive media buying, e-communication, social media management and strategy, print consultation and vendor sourcing, and a full service communication suite. RCM has over a decade of experience in public relations and marketing. For more information, visit
