Having launched his career as a published illustrator and artist, Rick Berlin realized the potential of the web long before many homes had internet access. Rick knew the web would be the next frontier in visual storytelling and B2B and B2C communication. A testament to the company’s experience as a pioneer in online media, Berlin Productions developed digital art and early user interfaces for online services such as Prodigy and AOL. Today, in its 28th year, Berlin Productions is expertly positioned at the intersection of innovative marketing, groundbreaking online technology and unique offline strategy. Rick Berlin’s company doesn’t just build web sites; it builds interactive experiences, as well as successful integrated and digital marketing programs, promotions and strategy, for some of the world’s most respected brands. These brands include Starbucks, Super 8, Kraft Foods, Columbia University, Home Depot, Wyndham Hotels, Sprint, Reuters, and Berkshire Hathaway. Rick has led Berlin Productions to win countless awards, including six Tellys (the interactive industry’s version of the Oscar), AV Video Top 100 honors (several years in a row), two NewMedia InVision Awards, and dozens of Big W prizes from the Advertising Club of Westchester.
