Small Agency of the Year, West, Silver: Duncan/Channon
Duncan/Channon specializes in launching or relaunching brands, work it has done for Hard Rock Cafe and Esurance. "We've always gone beyond the campaign, the marketing, the brief to get down to the brand underneath," said CMO and partner Parker Channon. "We're good at collaborating with clients to get to that level." With 60 employees, the agency increased its revenue 45% from $9.2 million in 2014 to $13.3 million last year.
The shop headed a California Tobacco Control Program initiative to spark conversations around stopping tobacco use. It also does work for StubHub and created a hilariously clever campaign for Kona Brewing.
