Vitamin announced Aug. 14 its selection as the “branding agency of choice” for four architecture/engineering firms with locations in the mid-Atlantic region and beyond: CCG Facilities Integration, CSD Architects, DMS International and Hardesty & Hanover. Each firm has hired Vitamin for distinct services, among which include: strategic planning, public relations, re-branding, graphic design and Web site design.
“Since Vitamin’s inception, we have rooted a niche for ourselves in the built industry and commercial real estate markets,” president/CEO of Vitamin, Amanda Karfakis said, “ We’ve formed a significant number of relationships with the principals and marketing directors of these companies, and we’ve focused on building partnerships that last. We’ve found that our expertise in A/E/C, coupled with our no-none-sense approach to ‘get it done the right way, the first time, every time’ is what wins us new business. We also see firms gravitating toward Vitamin because we have a boutique atmosphere that offers high-end PR, web design, and print design, all in-house, so there’s no need for our clients to manage multiple outsourced partner relationships. We take care of it all.”
Vitamin is handling the following new projects for these architecture and engineering firms:
