Tallgrass in the city of angels

Team TGP heads to the city of angels to take on 8 meetings with creative agencies in 2 days. 

Beforehand, the team prepped 40 gift boxes filled with prints, postcards and handpicked hot sauce. Our marketing rockstars also loaded up our iPads to display our latest reels, still photography and VFX projects. Then we sent JB, Katsie and Christiaan off to LA to meet with friends both new and old.

The first stop was Saatchi & Saatchi, meeting both the art buying and broadcast team. After a number of conversations on the phone, it was great to meet the Saatchi crew in person. They were impressed with JB’s work and the delicious San Diegan pastries. 

Next was a quick lunch at korean bbq ….but not too long after, Tallgrass was back on the road dropping off more gift boxes in the afternoon. Then the three hustled over for a quick meet with the talented minds at World Wide Minds. 

The last meeting of day 1 was with the awesome Innocean producers in Huntington beach. A great way to end the day - cocktails as the sun set.

Early the next morning, the 3 Tallgrassans hit the road for a meeting with Guthy-Renker for hot coffee and an introduction of our capabilities and work. Then it was off to lunch with friends from Deustch at Whiskey Red’s. After that delicious lunch was a late snack with Ignition. A short hop over and TGP was at Ignition with wraps from LYFE kitchen…yum! And to round out this group of new friends was Lenny from R&R partners….dropping off one last batch of goodies for the end of his day.

To wrap up the trip, they met up with an old friend - David Aktary - who helped connect us to our award-winning Hot Pockets project. An amazing 2 days….and we’re sure to be back soon!

Aly & Allison take on S.F.

 

Here’s to new friends and old! Ten meetings. Two days. Aly and Allison rocked their way through San Francisco, ’wining and dining’ with SF’s top ad agencies and mastering its public transport. 

By BART, bus, trolley and foot, these ladies made it everywhere from the beautiful shorelines of the Embarcadero to the historical docks of Fisherman's Wharf! Our friend, Angus at Dolby, welcomed us by taking us back to school. Wait, we mean Skool - a delightful lunch spot in SF where the menus were appropriately printed on binder paper! While our new friends at First Person were introduced to us over cocktails at a hip speakeasy bar named Local Edition. 

We also had the opportunity to meet with Doremus, Eleven Inc., and OneWorld…just to name a few. Everyone is so busy! So it was a great time for our team to see what these agencies are working on, and share our own work as well.

Tallgrass hits NYC

As a part of our ongoing efforts to meet new collaborators, our Head of Business Development, Aly Bucholz, traveled to New York last week. There she met with producers and creatives from 15 of the country's top advertising agencies, from Ogilvy to the Wall Street Journal. 

These stylish New Yorkers are always busy, but they have appreciation for seeing quality work, so they were more than happy to meet with Aly. During her visit, Aly found that the offices were impressive and the pace incredibly fast, yet all of the people were laid back. 

Besides making new friends and eating some great food, Aly enjoyed discussing the new and innovative projects underway at some of the world’s best ad shops. We are looking forward to working with them soon!
