Let the gift-giving season begin! Thanks to our new client STRUT, we’re up to speed on the perfect choice for the most style- and quality- discerning iPad owners on your list. We’ll be helping the California-based designer and manufacturer of premium “automotive jewelry collections” (including grilles, wheel and accessories) introduce a line of iPad products based on the proprietary wireless iPad charging technology marketed by its sister company, Launchport. The new STRUT Launchport line includes iPad protective cases in a number of gorgeous, designer finishes like walnut burl, carbon fiber, leopard print and sparkle pink. The iPad cases mate with a wireless pedestal that charges the iPad whenever it is docked. True to its automotive heritage, the charging pedestal is hand-crafted from jewelry grade stainless steel and is triple chrome plated. The personalized case options definitely differentiate owners as serious connoisseurs. Look for them (and us) at the New York International Gift Fair August 18-21.

While our biggest adrenaline rush is always scoring great coverage and results for clients, there’s also a certain amount of satisfaction in checking off “things that growing agencies should be doing” – especially when we’re usually too busy to make time for that task. We were delighted to add ‘award-winning’ as an adjective last year, thanks to several industry wins for account work. Now, we’ve moved into the Top 100 roster of U.S. independent PR agencies, as ranked by O’Dwyer’s. This ranking requires submission of verified revenue, so it’s the real deal. To paraphrase Gordon Gecko….“Growth is Good!”
