New IPG Production-Based Agency Addresses Marketplace Needs

The Interpublic Group of Companies has officially announced the creation of Pipeline PS, a high-end production agency that addresses the needs of clients and marketing communications agencies. The holistic production agency produces all forms of traditional and digital media in deadline-driven, cost-effective ways. The official Pipeline site, www.pipelineps.com, launches today.

Born last year to service clients of IPG network Draftfcb, the company split from the agency in January when it realized the business potential that existed by being a separate agency under the IPG umbrella. While still handling some production-related business for Draftfcb, Pipeline PS works for boutique and media agencies and clients including Pfizer, mark (Avon) catalogs and Gilda’s Club NYC, among others. Pipeline has also worked for clients including Gerber, Beiersdorf, the 2010 United States Census and Gevalia.

Staffed by 85 seasoned professionals, Pipeline’s robust offering provides clients the skills and expertise necessary to produce original and tailor existing communications.

“What makes Pipeline unique among production-based agencies is that it also offers creative services with a focus on response-driven, sales-oriented creative,” said Steven Kinder, EVP, General Manager and COO of Pipeline.

Among Pipeline’s many services are print production, file distribution, imaging studio, presentation services, retouching, conceptual and photo compositing, 3D illustration, digital production, proofreading and editorial services, creative services, brand extension/versioning, catalog design/production, video production and post-production services. Pipeline’s team of award-winning experts is flexible, seasoned and fully committed to making your creative vision a reality.

“Pipeline is poised to be the ideal solution for large-volume production and versioning needs,” Kinder added. “We’re also a go-to resource for clients and agencies that may not have in-house production capabilities, as well as those that have such capabilities, but need extra support to assist in handling overflow.”

Headquartered in New York, Pipeline also has offices in Chicago and Mumbai.
