We talk the talk
At ii (short for Ileana International) we love “E” words such as enthralled, engrossed, enchanted. When they come into play, we know we’re telling a gripping story.
So the media listens
Journalists are spellbound by the stories we share about our clients — because the stories are authentic, they resonate, and they’re memorable.
Like us, journalists are storytellers by nature. Like us, they enjoy connecting with people as only a story can.
And so does your audience
“Why?” is the ultimate, influential question.
Why did Picasso paint?
Why does Messi play football?
Why does Dylan sing?
We all want to know the reason why because it’s a compelling story.
And telling compelling stories is what we do best.
Curiosity drives us to find and tell your story
Experience gets us there
On any given day you’ll find ii at the intersection of passion and purpose, asking tough questions, crafting and articulating meaningful messages.

ii clients are…
People, products, places and causes that make a difference
We work with businesses, retail establishments, museums, educational institutions and non-profits. We are as comfortable crafting stories about products as we are about getting publicity for people, places, and events. Here’s a partial list of current and former clients.
