Grapevine Communications Launches New Website

SARASOTA, FLORIDA – Grapevine Communications International Inc. has launched an exciting newly redesigned website at www.grapeinc.com.

"Creativity is an ongoing, never-ending process, and we wanted to bring a fresh new look and feel to our website," said Grapevine President and Founder Angela Massaro-Fain.

In addition to the new look, changes to the website include an expanded portfolio, better navigation and improved functionality. The new portfolio is more representative of the agency's scope of services, providing an exciting, dynamic showcase of the agency's recent work in print, broadcast and interactive media, as well as collateral, direct mail, public relations and the full range of marketing communications services.

"The new website enables clients and prospective clients to search by industry as well as by service category, offering them a better way to find out who we are and what we do in a way that's relevant to them," said Executive Vice President and Partner John Fain.

The website also includes lighthearted and playful elements such as the staff comments in the bios section. Visitors to the site also will find a list of awards and recognition bestowed upon the agency, client testimonials, and a list of nonprofit organizations that have benefited from the agency's pro-bono services.

"We don't just say we're committed to the community; we prove it," said Massaro-Fain. "We have donated more than $709,000 in services to not-for-profit organizations since relocating to the Sarasota area in 2002."
