Oil, Computer Companies Sign With Bazzirk; Motorola Ups Ante

Bazzirk in Austin, Texas, has added $2 million in billings in the first quarter through the acquisition of three new accounts, plus assignments from core client Motorola.
The business-to-business agency, now at approximately $10 million in total billings, secured new business from London-based British Borneo, Infinite Technologies of New York and pcOrder in Austin.
Bazzirk president Kirk Wilson did not disclose individual billings for the accounts.
British Borneo is an oil exploration company which hired Bazzirk to define its identity within the petroleum industry through market research, according to the shop. The account was secured with an assist from Bazzirk partner, City Insights, also based in London.
The agency’s duties for Infinite Technologies, a reseller for Sun Microsystems, will be a direct mail and print advertising campaign aimed at financial institutions in lower Manhattan, Kirk said. Among the advertising venues will be The Wall Street Journal.
Bazzirk will develop a marketing program for pcOrder, which designs electronic commerce software for retail computer vendors. Direct mail and trade show collateral will also be a part of the mix.
Among new responsibilities for Motorola are redesigning the client’s M.Core Web site and developing a quarterly newsletter for the company’s semiconductor division. Bazzirk will also create advertising for Motorola’s RTEK computer chip operating system.
