WHAT’S SO SPECIAL ABOUT US?

Six years ago, while working closely with clients like AT&T, BMW, Southwest Airlines, L.L.Bean, Marshalls and Goodyear, we (Karen Jacobs and John Trahar) couldn’t help notice that the traditional systems of the agency model added a layer of complexity and confusion to a process that required simplicity, clarity and alignment. We imagined a better way and created GCF to work at the “speed of social”, because the relevance and resonance of modern content is an always on proposition.

To achieve this, we’ve made some fundamental changes to the agency model to get your best brand voice, from social on up, out into the world with speed, accuracy, dexterity, efficacy and charm. We stopped tracking hours and focused on the quality of the deliverable instead. We cut layers of complexity and confusion out of the traditional advertising and production approach by breaking down some time-consuming silos. And our personal cell phone numbers are available to all in the name of making things better

“This shop is nimble and flexible enough to help wherever is necessary and is capable of delivering any of our digital/social and physical experience needs.”

Anthony Abernathy, Nike Global Digital Marketing

“GCF understood our specific strategic needs from the get go and developed a concept and a way to produce it that helped us better resonate with our customer almost immediately.”

Charles Kordes, CMO SafeAuto Insurance

“At some point your expectations are so ridiculously exceeded you realize you’re talking about a completely different thing. That is what GCF made of the ADDYs. From start to finish, they created an amazing, fun, real, lucrative…thing…wildly beyond our expectations. And for that I am completely grateful.”

Cynthia McGuineas, Austin AdFed President

“GCF understands how difficult it is to break through the sea of sameness and get consumers to pay attention. Not only do they handle strategy and concept, they are also our production company, so there’s no disconnect between idea and execution.”

Greg Stroud, SSFCU SVP Sales and Marketing
