Internet communication is part of the communication mix we all have to do in the multi-medial environment we live in nowadays. So, with screen and print design as one of my focal points, and a background in advertizing, it is self-evident that I can do PR work for you, isn't it?
Public relations is about getting people talk about you, whereas advertizing is about people getting to realize you. You can't really do one without the other. And you don't need to.
In fact, the public relations work I do is based on success. You don't pay for it if you don't get mentioned. If you do get mentioned, you pay for it on a contacts rated base. Normally less than for a corresponding ad.
By the way, did I mention? I don't have to build your website to make it popular.
