Veronica has decided to create this cosmetic to accentuate the color within the styles she assembles for her high-profile clients in Nigeria. She has an extensive history in the Fashion Industry. First, she started modeling for major brands in America and through her experiences learned how to become a stylist. After achieving an impressive profile she decided to take her expertise to her hometown in Nigeria. There she built a niche within the community and has blossomed. Veronica has established herself as a Fashion guru by launching VANE Style, opening VANE style showroom, and building an online following with her fashion informative blog posts on style tips for the everyday woman.

This nail lacquer will embody all that she loves from the fashion industry. Color, florals, and chic designs. This summer VANE Nail Lacquer will launch their core 8 colors along with 4 seasonal colors.

VANE Nail Laquer is RCW Media Group’s latest high-profile client.  This is an exciting time for us here in the office as we create brand identity, packaging, and marketing materials in preparation for the launch. For Vane Nail Lacquer, we will assist in building of the product and promotion once it is ready to be sold. Check our social media for the latest news and previews of what to expect. We are excited to help Veronica build this new product from the ground up and make it Red Carpet Worthy!

Christmas the Time of Social Marketing


Two retailers, John Lewis and Marks & Spencer’s, have shown the world the importance of putting social “at the heart” of an integrated campaign, stated Sarah Vizard.

John Lewis, a department store based in Great Britain, has created a holiday campaign about a young boy and his pet penguin named Monty. The ad sends a positive message on friendship and christmas love.

Since its debut, a communications agency, Waggener Edstrom’s Brand Agility, has noticed that the campaign has gained more notoriety on social media and is constantly increasing visibility as it leads into its fourth week. The Waggener Edstrom‘s Brand Agility company has conducted a study for this year’s christmas campaigns by using a index to measure the engagement, originality, differentiation, and relevance of each campaign for the past 30 days.  John Lewis received a 44, which is the highest score.

The other popular ad that been making a splash is the two fairies ad by Marks and Spencer, a British multinational retail store. These two fairies go around the city and use their magic to help strangers by performing “random acts of kindness.” They received the second highest score of 42.

Each retailer had created dynamic characters and story lines which enabled them to generate buzz from the ads and from it created a strong social media following. The two fairies and Monty the penguin now have their own Twitter profiles. We Are Social, a social media agency, has collected data showing that #MontythePenguin has been mentioned over 200,000 times on Twitter and #followthefairies over 24,000 times. This has increased engagement and communication with audiences for both retailers.

See how Marks & Spencer encourage social action through magic and christmas by giving away christmas trees to those in need.

The final results from the study demonstrated that having “strong content creation, audience interaction, and quick responses” makes for a winning campaign, Vizard said.

Darrell Troppy

Many complain that art and fashion in today’s society has become so plain and ordinary.  Rarely do artists try new things or have unique inspirations in fear of rejection for their pieces.  But this is where the artist Darrell Troppy comes in to change this situation.  Unlike today’s conventional artists, Darrell attempts to break free of the boring path art has been taking, to try new styles and designs.  He is known for his use of vibrant colors, dramatic compositions and mesmerizing imagery.  Since a young age he has experimented with different types of art and today makes beautiful encaustic paintings.  This unique style of painting takes a great deal of time to complete, but to Darrell, every second of work and commitment is worth the final beautiful product he creates.  To show off these stunning paintings in your office, hotel, restaurant, show room or etc, please contact RCW Media Group at or call Casandra Walker at 323-979-8417.

Representing Everything Red Carpet Worthy!

Encaustic Artist

Enjoying art is just like reading a great novel with a glass of wine in hand. Not just for the elite to enjoy, art is something everyone can appreciate. Darrell Troppy, encaustic artist, has captured the eyes of people around the world with his unique art. From flowers and trees to dancing ballerinas, Darrell continues to show the beauty of his life and travels through the art he creates. His gallery is A MUST SEE!

We are so happy to announce that Darrell Troppy has recently interviewed with The Texas Country Reporter and we anxiously await the release of his TV debut, Feb. 25&26. Check Texas Country Reporter website for show times in your area.

We love you Darrell, Congrats on all your success! Looking forward to your ART show in NYC, 2013.
