Hello and thank you for stopping by.

“Who are Raine & Makin?” I hear you say.

Raine & Makin was founded by Rusty Benson & Luke Schoknecht in 2013 to help businesses and start ups communicate their passion to their audiences. After a combined 13 years of working for design studios and large global advertising agencies honing our creative skills and gaining valuable experience, we became aware of the gap between design, marketing and communications companies and the lack of collaborative partner-based relationships with businesses of all sizes. Focusing on intelligent and strategy based design, Raine & Makin exists to help clients communicate their passion and brand story to their audiences.

Raine & Makin work across both digital, print and communications strategy with equal parts results driven work and aesthetically beautiful design. Utilising a close, collaborative network of developers, illustrators, photographers and videographers, Raine & Makin can assist in the realisation of any vision.

“That’s great, what is the blog for?” Another good question.

This blog exists to provide a forum for us to share our world with you. Sometimes we will write about our thoughts, other times we will show you how we have helped a client, but one thing we will never do is upload weird youtube cat videos.

We also like to share on social media a lot, so please check out the related links to follow us.
