JMPR Public Relations has been named agency of record for Huntington Beach, California’s Foose Design Inc., the world-renowned automotive design and fabrication company led by famed designer and builder, Chip Foose.
Foose has penned some of the most iconic hot rod and custom vehicles ever created and is widely known for his starring role in making dreams come true for auto aficionados on Velocity’s Overhaulin’ over the last 10 years, according to the company.
“I have a longstanding relationship with JMPR, and based on their experience and what they have managed to do for my team in the past, I know that they can clearly see my vision for Foose Design initiatives in 2016,” Foose said. “I’m thrilled to work with them once again to fuse our passions.”
Throughout his career, Foose has helped develop paint schemes and graphic treatments for Disney Pixar’s Cars and Cars 2 films, as well as served as creative counsel for Cars Land at Disney’s California Adventure theme park in Anaheim.
JMPR previously worked with Foose Design from 1999 to 2007, supporting the launch of a number of the company’s creations, including the Impression 1936 Ford Roadster, the limited-production Foose Coupe supercar and numerous vehicle collaborations and design projects, the company noted.
JMPR will handle media relations for Foose Design and offering strategic brand building counsel. In 2016, JMPR will also assist with the development and elevation of Foose’s expert awareness among the automotive, lifestyle and design communities.
