Hope that helps you. Most of the websites that I got through researching individual companies from the list would fall into your second category. Hell I’m not even a web designer and I wasn’t exactly blown away. I did like your web designs though. Good work though I disagree about the color pink. My wife is Asian and has systematically purchased every gawd damned Hello Kitty item in the Sanrio catalog. (have you ever tried to make a call on a pink, plastic phone that is worth less in parts than what the average couch currently holds in dropped pocket change?)Pink is truly the color of hellspawn. TRy J.Walter Thompson, or any of the other American based, international players. Here is a quote from a Chinese Graphic Designer that may help you…
"If I’m not mistaken, I think I have heard about this one
Ogilvy & Mather
8/F Min Sheng Commercial Building, 51 Min Sheng East Road, Section 3,
Tel: 8862 2505 5789 Fax: 8862 2505 2334
Btw, those companies that located on Tun-Hua S Road, , hsin Yi Road,and
Keelung Road, would probably be good ones to start with since they seem to
located in a very expensive, high standard sections of Taipei."
I’d be very interested to hear how your search has gone as I haven’t really tried yet and wouldn’t mind hearing about companies that were receptive to foreigners.
