Kinko’s Review Down to Four

LOS ANGELES – Kinko’s has named four finalists in the review for its $30 million creative and media account.

They include Texas shops GSD&M in Austin, The Richards Group in Dallas, and Temerlin McClain in Irving, as well as J. Walter Thompson in Chicago, said Kinko’s vice president of marketing Laura Kurzu . The cut comes as Kinko’s prepares to relocate its headquarters from Ventura, Calif. to Dallas.

The incumbent, TBWA\Chiat\Day in Playa del Rey, Calif., dropped out of the review, said Kurzu, who described the parting as amicable. TBWA\C\D could not immediately be reached.

D’Arcy Masius Benton & Bowles in St. Louis did not advance.

Final presentations will be held in late December, with a decision before the end of the year.
