Third Party Suggestions

The best in the business IMHO is Rob Frankel. He's in LA, but well worth the hassle of the travel. You can hire big fancy firms with big fancy retainers. But if what you're looking for is results, Rob Frankel is your man. Feel free to tell him I sent you.

You should check out Corporate Branding. One of the advantages that Corporate Branding offers is the expertise of the large brand consultancies coupled with the creative expertise of a design boutique.

DiMassimo based out of NYC, they do branding for Citibank, Gateway etc. Boutique, not too big. Very creative. Has good net ties/strategic relationships. Call Mark DiMassimo at 212 253-7500.

Pete Snyder

Boscobel -- a small firm in this very area. It launched AOL way back when and is still very much in business. And I think it knows the net pretty well. They do advertising and PR both. You might ask to speak with Vanessa.

Good luck!

Please don't hesitate to contact us again if you have any further questions.
