Palomar head Joni Sighvatsson says he's still committed to the division, which will continue under the direction of Matt Marquis, although he says the current economic climate demands that it become leaner. "We're going to downsize it a little bit, because the industry is in a downsizing mode," he says. "It will be a little bit smaller, but it will focus on alternative talent, on developing new talent and on alternative advertising." Howard, meanwhile, is pursuing freelance consulting on the kinds of projects that Slo Graffiti was designed to handle. "Basically, I'm in the business of being an idea broker; taking ideas from artists and working with clients to find a match, not sifting through storyboards and bidding jobs," she says.
