Investor Outreach Annual Report Web Site Corporate Brochure
When DeVry Inc. joined the S&P 500, they wanted to make sure the investment world was aware of
their milestone achievement. So naturally DeVry turned to Curran & Connors to design and place
full-page print advertisements offering 500 scholarships to workers recently affected by corporate
layoffs. The ad ran in The Wall Street Journal and USA Today. Curran & Connors also assisted
DeVry’s corporate communications team on the development of the annual report, corporate Web
site and corporate brochure.

Capital City Bank
Capital City Bank relies on Curran & Connors for media targeting and media buying services. We replaced
a local ad agency that was not up to the task of placing ads cost-effectively in the multiple communities
served by the bank. Curran & Connors delivers a level of expertise, dedication and media pricing savvy
that few local agencies can match. The bank also utilizes our creative team to develop print, online and
outdoor advertising campaigns.

efforts and achievements. For some, like Cooper Industries and ASUR, we design and produce standalone

incorporate a strong CSR message in printed or online annual reports. In addition, eco-friendly production
techniques are used to further communicate sustainability and environmental responsibility.

to meet the challenges in a continually changing corporate
environment. Our ongoing evolution translates into enhanced
design capabilities, cutting-edge technology and better service
to our clients. With design studios in New York, Chicago, Florida
and California, and account executives across the country, we
