Republik Lands PlayMaker Account

ATLANTA The Republik has been tapped by PlayMaker Sports Advisors to provide corporate-image development, advertising and Web site design, the agency said.

According to the Durham, N.C., shop, it was selected without a review largely due to its work for PlayMaker’s parent company, Pepper Hamilton. Republik has created corporate-image advertising for its weekly Baseball America publication since fall 2001.

The agency will design a new logo and Web site, as well as create print, Internet and direct-mail advertising for PlayMaker, a packager of sports-franchise purchase deals. Print ads will run in trade publications that target non-sports business executives, the shop said.

Billings were undisclosed.

Republik recently moved from Chapel Hill, N.C., to Durham. According to the shop, its new office is twice the size of its former location.
