NEW YORK, July 16, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Branding and marketing communications agency, The Halo Group announced that they have been named agency of record by Virginia-based Infinit Software Solutions, Inc, to launch Linguizz, the first visually-driven vocabulary and English learning system that accelerates students' word retention and comprehension.
The agency's focus will be on creating and enhancing Linquizz's brand identity, positioning the system as a global platform for learning English by using powerful visual imagery that translates words across borders. The New York-based agency will also provide integrated marketing communications services to build brand awareness amongst key trade and consumer education audiences including creative, advertising, packaging, trade shows and public relations.

Bender and software and visual designer Art Toezer, CEO and Founder of Infinit Software Solutions Inc, developed Linguizz. Created for not only faster learning, but also longer retention and superior comprehension, the unique learning system combines visuals, word definitions and pronunciations to provide students and teachers with enhanced context to understand English vocabulary.
"Halo has an excellent understanding of the crowded educational marketplace and what it takes for our brand to successfully connect with our customers," said Toezer.
