Informix Corp., a software and online technology marketer, has named Young & Rubicam, San Francisco, its ad agency of record for a $40 million account.

Y&R will help shape a new corporate positioning for Informix and create in the coming months a global ad campaign slated to run in the United States, Europe and Asia.


Part of Young & Rubicam Inc., the San Francisco office of Y&R has clients such as Sony ITA, Covad, Blue Martini, Adobe and Command Audio. Billings last year were more than $300 million.
