Sean Topping + Holly Menges Launch New Denver Agency, Grit.
Dear Egotist People,
I am writing to tell you that I have started a new agency with partner, Sean Topping. Sean was most recently Creative Director at Karsh + Hagan. We felt our combined experience in the outdoor, travel and tourism, fashion and packaged goods industries, and our creative mad skills, plus a tendency toward questioning assumptions and getting cranky when given rules to follow, was a recipe for a new kind of agency that Denver needs. (Right? Denver needs yet another shop don't ya think? With cranky creatives??)
We have heard from several different clients that there is a disconnect between what their agency is providing and what they really need. Our team works with our clients throughout the incubation period to get to the gold in a more collaborative way. Which means we find big crazy ideas faster, that are targeted and on strategy very early on in the process. The front end cycle of presentations and revisions and presentations and revisions etc, to eventually getting the green light, is compressed tremendously with our model. Great stuff gets out faster, which means there's more time to get out even more great stuff.
We call it 'ideas in execution.' Because it's one thing to just have ideas, it's another to execute great ones as quickly as today demands. So at any given time we are coming up with new ideas—while also executing approved ones. Whether that be a video, website, social or digital campaigns or traditional formats.
We are Grit. Find us at www.madewithgrit.com.
