    We are currently looking for a replacement for one of our clients. We are a web consulting firm with a client epdmcoatings.com. They have had a ad firm for the past two year that has produced very poor quality ads for their print publications and their sales have suffered. We are looking to review only 5 companies who send in a sample of two ads specific for our client. (put a watermark on the ad of whatever you need to but proof of your experience and ability creative thinking will be required) Our client has given a good amount of business to their last company and I expect with the increased quality the billing amount would only increase. I have provided samples of the previous ads etc. Please review their website as to what they do and the uniqueness of the product.We are looking for a company and or person who know how to develop ideas and create powerful graphics and messages. SORRY NO OVERSEA COMPANIES as travel to the company might be required 3-4 times a year which they will gladly pay for. Of the companies submitting 5 will be contacted and we will have phone discussions with them and make a decision with that following week. Should you have any questions please feel free to contact me directly at 203 906 4346 Thank youGreg
