Top Advertising Agency in San Francisco

Spirits are high with the acquisition of award-winning experiential and influencer agency, A2G. The move cements DC’s rep as a top San Francisco advertising shop, but brings with it New York and Los Angeles offices along with an invaluable new partner and industry pioneer, Amy Cotteleer.

 

At a time when brands are looking to engage consumers across paid, earned, shared and owned media, DC is now in a unique position to deliver against every channel. A2G’s resonant work with blue-chip clients, including Levi’s, Nintendo, Citibank and Samsung, has been recognized industry-wide. And their launch work for Gap’s Product (RED) was heralded as Promotion of the Year.

For our mantel, it means two additional Ad Age Small Agency of the Year awards to supplement the two we already have. For our clients, both current and prospective, it means a suite of services unmatched by any other SF indie along with true reach across the state and nation.

Rakuten is back with the latest installment of the “Power of R” campaign, this time featuring a relatively well-known professional basketball player. Poised to continue the brand’s successful awareness-building, watch for the commercials all up and down your TV dial and across the digital universe.

Today we’re thrilled to announce the acquisition of A2G, a widely recognized experiential and social influencer agency. The acquisition extends our reach to two new major markets, adds a robust suite of complementary services to our offering and brings us a powerful new partner.

Tobacco flavors that seem fun and vaping devices that look like tech gadgets have led teens, and even parents, to underestimate the damage of nicotine. Most people know it’s addictive. But addiction is only the beginning. Nicotine is a neurotoxin whose changes to the teen brain could be permanent. And that’s what our campaign sets out to communicate.
