The university also tapped Avenue A/Razorfish's sister agency, i-Frontier, for online creative work. Avenue A/Razorfish is in charge of media planning and buying for online media and search as well as analytics.


The two shops, owned by aQuantive Inc., were finalists last year for Capella's account. Both agencies are charged with creating and executing interactive ads to attract students to enroll online with Capella.
