Anyone have insight on The Martin Agency? I know they have GEICO, which is nice...although I don’t see much GEICO work on the portfolios of their creatives. And can a LA/SF/NYC guy adapt to Richmond?

I love Richmond, it’s an awesome town. And I liked my time at Martin. Hard to get on GEICO.


Same as above. Get in line to get in Geico. Great agency, great creative, but Richmond is an adjustment for sure.


As a native Virginian and current San Franciscan, I can tell you without a doubt that Richmond is a great, great place to be right now. It's a small town, for sure, but there's a great community of artists and creatives, as well as a burgeoning entreprenurial scene. Like most places, Richmond is becoming better as millennials are taking over. Plus it's within striking distance of DC - Phil - NYC. Super nice place, and great for the outdoors if that's your thing.


Also a lot of history there worth exploring


Posted this before but the addition of Kristen Cavallo is a big plus. She’s fantastic


@CW2 in SF now as well! ✋🏻 high five!

Martin has been on a bit of a downfall after Joe Alexander’s scandal and losing the Walmart account. Definitely still produce great work but I wouldn’t say they’re at the level they used to be at.

Learned that an old friend of mine recently lost her mother. We haven’t talked in a while. Had a rather bad falling out. Her mom was kind and always motherly to me. Would it be appropriate to reach out to send condolences? Send flowers? I can’t stop thinking about her this morning.
