APEX,Palm Beach Image Factory has signed a contract worth $48,000 for media services with Porchfire Communications, which is based in Apex.

“We selected Porchfire Communications over other high profile agencies for two primary reasons,” said Steven Strassburger, creative director for PBIF. “We felt they offered an unmatched level and quality of service, and because we were looking for a provider that could also be a partner for us as we grow our business. Outsourcing this critical business function to Porchfire allows us to hold down our overall marketing costs while focusing resources on our core business model.”

Strassburger was a winner of the 2001 Emmy for Special Effects for work done on The X-Files.

PBIF is shifting its service offerings to stress video production and graphic design rather than offering marketing strategies.
