Renner Barnes Creative will do whatever it takes to expand audience engagement for your business.

Our Approach

We believe great relationships generate great work. We start with listening to you and the story of your work — the distance you’ve traveled to get to here. Each project and client brings unique needs and challenges. Next is the fun part. We custom curate what best meets your needs and then cover the next part of the journey together.

Our Story

Nikki and Rebecca joined forces in Santiago, Chile with a collaborative photography experiment. They had so much fun, they just kept coming up with more projects to do together. Then in April 2018, Rebecca said, let’s start a company. Both dynamic, innovative and little rebellious, they love making things happen together.
