Unagency 

It’s not enough to simply say how different you are. Every agency does that. Different isn’t open floor plans, unlimited time off, booze-fueled company retreats, and bean bag conference rooms. Different is challenging the status quo, ruffling a few feathers, and striving to change the agency paradigm. SMCG doesn’t just claim to be different, we are.

We learned from some of the best. We took the best traits from our history and left the worst behind in order to offer unmatched value, cutting edge creativity, world-class production, and award winning execution. We started SMCG because we knew things had to be changed. There is far too much dishonesty in the agency world, but not at SMCG. Challenge us. We relish the chance to prove we’re actually different and, for us, different means better.

Billing 

We don’t hide anything from our clients. We don’t bury costs. We don’t mark anything up. Want contact info for a vendor? Just ask. Want to see a receipt? Sure thing. When you have nothing to hide, you’re willing to put it all on the table.

We take time and care with our estimates and we bill accurately and honestly. This kind of transparency doesn’t exist at other agencies, but it does with us because it’s the right thing to do.

Lastly, because we operate lean and mean, we have significantly less overhead. What does this mean for you? Your dollar goes further with SMCG. For every dollar you spend with us, more goes towards your project and less goes towards overhead and profit.

The Details 

It’s the little things that matter. It’s the details that most people, most agencies don’t take the time to get right. From emails without typos and documents that are formatted correctly to meticulous onsite management and on-the-fly quality adjustments, the nitty-gritty details really matter. We might be a little more active than the agencies you’re used to. We literally sweat the petty stuff, because it’s not petty to us.

Housed in The Oxford Hotel Annex right across from Denver’s historic Union Station, SMCG is steeped in a culture that makes working here unique, exciting, and gratifying. Generous PTO, encouraged work-from-home time, office gym, cell phone stipend, etc. We provide all those Silicon Valley perks and more. It’s not about work-life balance at SMCG, it’s only about life balance. Work should be a part of life that is enjoyed. Play hard, never work.

For millennials, by millennials. We embrace the state of the world. This means we welcome the sharing and gig economy, allowing lower overhead and those savings are passed directly to the client.

Insurance

There are two big reasons you hire an agency: expertise and risk mitigation. You already have a good understanding of our expertise. If you’ve made it this far into our site, you are looking for that last little push – the information that makes you go “Yes! These guys get it.”

Well, we do. We understand that advertising and marketing has inherent risk. This is why we carry best in class insurance to protect your company, brand, or project from the uncertainties. Our general liability carries a 5 million dollar umbrella and our errors & omissions policy carries a 5 million dollar umbrella to insure the work we do together is safe. We take the risk, so you don’t have to.
