 LOCAL DESIGN FIRM ANNOUNCES NAME CHANGE

 RENO NEVADA – D4 Web Design, a local design company, will change its name effectively October 15 to D4 Advanced Media.  This change is part of a larger rebranding effort to emphasize the company’s commitment to web design solutions for branding, marketing and social media. The announcement of the name change was made by John Dunlap, owner and design direct of D4. “The name D4 Advanced Media promotes the strong marketing background and technology expertise of our company,” said Dunlap. “We offer several exciting branding platforms and needed a new company name to reflect our positioning.” D4 found they needed to better showcase their work and provide clientele with current information on the how the Internet is changing and how it affects their businesses and online strategy. Changing the name to D4 Advanced Media is the first step to rebrand the company to what their current clients already know about them: They are not just web design. “As a client of D4, our company has seen firsthand that D4 does far more than just design a website; they are a creative team who happen to use design in their overall marketing strategy,” said Linda Oakley, Vice President of Allied Van Lines in San Diego, CA. “Their marketing efforts have boosted our search engine results and increased traffic to our site and business. And I know I can come to them for marketing consultation long after their work on the website has been completed.” D4’s own website utilizes an HTML framework that has pushed them up to the number one spot for most Reno web design searches. The success of their current website has played an important role in conveying the D4 philosophy to their clients. “D4 has been integral in redeveloping our company’s website and online presence,” said Bud Carrol, owner of Holliday &Associates in Incline Village, NV. “Their ability to conceptualize a design and refine it to exactly what we wanted was invaluable. Not only does our new site use the latest website design concepts, it also puts forth our company brand and ideas we market to our potential customers.” D4 Advanced Media is a creative design group specializing in creating web, graphic and print media solutions for trend setting businesses. D4’s mission is to deliver the most innovative design solutions to aid businesses in their quest for great design, usability, search optimization and brand recognition. It was founded in 2005 as D4 Web Design as a small start-up company and has since grown to serve over 200 businesses Reno, San Diego and Sacramento.  D4 Advanced Media is located in South Reno at 9650 Gateway Drive.
