Hometown Heroes: Martin Agency Puts Richmond, VA On the Advertising Map

Being a Richmonder, when I opened this month’s issue of Fast Company to see the extensive profile of the Martin Agency I couldn’t have been prouder. I’ve walked past their offices more times than I could count. They were the inspiration for me getting into marketing & advertising in the first place.

So when the company I’ve been profiling since I was almost a kid landed the $580 million Wal-Mart account, I felt like my hometown team just scored the winning touchdown.

Congrats to you, Martin Agency – and if you need some creative talent to help you with your new project, you know where to find me. 😉
