    SAN FRANCISCO, April 12 /PRNewswire/ -- Hi-Impact Communications, a
 boutique San Francisco-based public relations and creative marketing agency,
 announced today a new company name, logo, office location and Web site, as
 well as expanded services and staff additions.
     In response to the changing market, Hi-Impact has evolved from a
 conventional entertainment and new media public relations firm to a
 communications company that provides not only traditional public relations
 services, but also event planning, creative marketing and strategic
 promotional services.  The agency, formerly Hi-Impact PR, changed its identity
 to Hi-Impact Communications to reflect this expanded focus.  Hi-Impact's fresh
 identity, redesigned Web site (www.hiimpactcommunications.com) and new South
 of Market location reflect the company's evolving focus, and complement the
 agency's professionalism, sophistication and creativity.
     In order to efficiently grow and maintain top quality services, Hi-Impact
 tapped PR and marketing guru Kirsten Merit to join the agency as its
 "strategic force."  Boasting more than eight years of experience and past
 tenures at Sony (PlayStation) and lifestyle public relations agencies
 Glodow Nead Communications in San Francisco and The Blaze Company in Los
 Angeles, Merit brings to Hi-Impact the top-notch strategic and managerial
 skills necessary to create successful public relations and marketing
 campaigns.
     Hi-Impact has also teamed up with digital music veteran Jim Stabile, whose
 experience includes positions at Emusic, Sony Music (Epic Records) and
 Polygram (now Universal Music Group).  As the agency's "digital force," he
 will focus on expanding agency services to include creative marketing and
 online promotions.
     "Hi-Impact's focus has evolved, allowing us to take on a broader range of
 innovative clients and impact their business," comments Sarah Stabile, founder
 and creative force, Hi-Impact Communications.  "Hi-Impact's talented team of
 professionals (otherwise known as The Force) is key to expanding services and
 growing the business from an entertainment PR agency to a multi-faceted
 communications company."
     Hi-Impact Communications, LLC was founded in February 2000 to offer public
 relations and communications services to forward-thinking entertainment,
 lifestyle and new media companies.  From strategic counsel to creative
 campaigns, Hi-Impact's services include events planning and production,
 focused media relations, national and market-to-market programs, business to
 business activities, product placement and more, all designed to positively
 impact each client's business and, ultimately, its bottom line.  Hi-Impact has

 of clients, including Levi's, Vitaminic.com, Salon.com, WiredPlanet, Bruno's,
