HyperDrive Acquires Cincinnati Design Firm, Expanding Strategic
Creative Capabilities For Consumer Brand Clients

Pioneer of digital marketing adds Brill Creative to its roster of companies

Indian Hill, Ohio – October 11, 2015 – HyperDrive, a 15 year old digital marketing agency, today announced the acquisition of Blue Ash, Ohio, branding and design firm Brill Creative.

Opening its doors on January 1st 2001, HyperDrive is the first company in the Greater Cincinnati area to offer 1-to-1 relationship-driven digital marketing services. “We were founded on the first day of a new century based on the idea that marketing had changed fundamentally,” said Founder and CEO Dan Heimbrock. “HyperDrive started offering customer engagement, growth and retention strategies that were ahead of the curve, and they still are today,”

Also in 2001, HyperDrive established the first agency relationship with today’s leading email marketing service provider, ExactTarget (now Salesforce Marketing Cloud). Over the years, this relationship also helped spawn two HyperDrive other companies unique to the digital ecosphere – brand-fan email marketing specialist FanMail Marketing and content marketing automation software developer, StoryPorts.

Dan-Heimbrock – HyperDrive Interactive“We have a data-driven marketing mindset that believes consumers and B2B buyers deserve respect through timely, personalized and highly relevant messages from the brands they love,” said Heimbrock. “The addition of Brill Creative will further enhance our creative capabilities and we’re poised to raise the bar when it comes to delivering positive returns for our clients.”

HyperDrive believes the addition of Brill Creative adds more ways to satisfy complex client needs that require expert digital strategy, eye-catching design and targeted delivery.

Dan Brill - Brill Creative“Our creative concepts and high level design execution will combine well with HyperDrive’s analytics-driven and ROI-based strategic programs,” said company founder Dan Brill. “I feel that by working together we’ll be able to unlock untapped potential that provides quick and nimble response to client needs when it matters most.”

Poster Design & DVD Packaging Prowess

Ray’s Music Exchange has become a Cincinnati Jazz/funk/groove institution whose legend, roster of past musicians, and influence spreads from coast to coast. After the success of last year’s inaugural Ray’s Reunion Show, the first live show from the band in 5 years, yielded both excited fans and reinvigorated band members as well as a forthcoming DVD of the show, they have decided to make the reunion an annual event.

With a DVD release party and amazing performance on 10/8/11 at the Southgate House in Newport, KY, Brill Creative was tapped to develop Ray’s Music Exchange’s Live DVD Digipac art and packaging. Armed with photography provided by Noble Visions, copy and content by Brad Myers of Ray’s and specs from DiscMakers, Dan Brill dove into the project.

“We produced a couple of initial concepts and quickly narrowed it down to the one we wanted to run with” said Brill. “The process was pretty smooth and painless. It had to be, as there was little time to get the art ready and have the product produced in time for the scheduled event. The end product turned out very sharp.”
