Saman Rahmanian, former creative director at Tribal DDB New York, is a co-founder of Brinx, a URL shorterner that incorporates the user's own branding. For $0.99/month (there's a free 30-day trial period) you can use the service whenever you share a link and your own name will appear above the web page when the reader clicks on it.
Rahmanian, who left Tribal DDB earlier this month, was behind ideas such as Wheel of Concept while at the agency and has set up on his own to launch his own interactive ventures. He co-founded the site with colleague Andronicus Riyono. "What's nice about Brinx is that it allows people and businesses to advertise themselves regularly, without the awkwardness of talking only about themselves," said Rahmanian.
