RFI recently unveiled a new brand identity and website for Moo IT Solutions, an up-and-coming company offering high-level technology consulting, managed IT and cloud services. With specialties in the construction and automotive industry, Moo IT’s goal was to be perceived as the cost-effective tech expert that serves clients’ needs, whether it’s offering turnkey support or supplementing a company’s in-house department. RFI created a memorable new logo, look, positioning and website that successfully communicate these objectives and ensure all eyes are on Moo IT. (www.mooit.com)

This summer RFI had the pleasure of working with intern Emily Palmer who is entering her senior year at Marist College this fall. Emily worked with both RFI and Trilogy Publications, applying her excellent research and writing/editing/proofreading skills to a range of projects. Her favorite: research into a future book for Trilogy, Those Amazing Architects, and development of a preliminary outline. We wish Emily all the best in the year ahead!

Please take a look at the New Year’s message we developed for our long standing client, Lilker Associates.

This web based animation uses no video and really simplifies delivery across all platforms. Congratulations Lilker!
