"We're hoping to convey that we're not just a microprocessor company, but a move-society-forward-by-quantum-leaps company. Our image, our brand are far too powerful to just be a microprocessor when, in fact, the greatest strength of the Intel brand will always be what is still to come. What Intel develops today leads the path toward a better tomorrow." 1

- Deborah Conrad, vice president and general manager, Corporate Marketing Group, Intel, in May 2009.

"Most of the world knows Intel as a huge, multi-national chipmaker, but the company is much more than that."2

- Paul Venables, founder and co-creative director, Venables Bell and Partners3, in May 2009.

"I do believe it is topical, natty, and intelligent in its presentation. It repositions the brand and contemporizes very well." 4

- Harish Bijoor, business strategy specialist and CEO, Harish Bijoor Consults Inc.5, commenting on Intel's 'Sponsors of Tomorrow' campaign, in June 2009.
