Words that make our day.
Absolutely magical work – across 3 of our monster brands – each unique and each uniquely complex.
REBECCA MESSINA, CMO
I could not have been more pleased with the process, the outputs, and the level of thinking!
I couldn't recommend Nazia more highly to anyone looking for a creative, whip-smart partner.
Nazia is the first
person I called when I joined Spotify to lead foundational brand and creative strategy for us.
ANDY KATZ-MAYFIELD, CEO
There are a lot of good strategists out there. And then there's Nazia Du Bois. I'm not afraid to call her the best planner in the world.
JACKIE JANTOS, VP Brand
You should be so proud of the brand work you've done and the way you've steered the Netflix ship...very hard to do!

We keep good company.
Our strategic thinking underpins some of the world's most loved brands.
There's too much going on
for brands not to take an
active role in culture.
But that also makes it a really exciting time for brands to stand up and say something meaningful. We're at a critical juncture in our cultural narrative, with seemingly everything up for grabs. Brands have the chance to use their power to reshape things for the better, by digging deep to deliver both the meaning and the magic that consumers want in their lives.
At Ricebowl, we're a tight team of senior brand strategists and creative thinkers who believe in brands speaking for the global growth consumer. Most companies are looking to the Global South for their growth (and post-pandemic recovery), but leadership teams both in-house and at agencies are still rarely reflective of the consumer we speak to. We do spend time figuring out what companies stand for, but mostly we ask why that should appeal, in the lives of folks across the world. We craft culturally impactful brands that do the things people actually want in their lives - whether that's progressive messaging or innovative product. Being a female-POC founded practice means we build with inclusion at the heart of everything we do. And being an indie shop means we can (and do) partner with the very best creative teams globally, making cool things whatever their shape or form, unchecked by holding company strings.
We always prefer a real conversation to a sexy creds deck, and we don't love pitching (who does?). So if you're a CMO, CEO or brand leader who wants to pinpoint the truth of your brand with real relevance in the wonderful chaos we live in, drop us a line. We'd love to chat.
