Boulderado, One Of The Finest Outposts In Adlandia

Before Crispin moved to Boulder, Sterling Rice Group and tda held court. After Crispin moved to Boulder, tda and Sterling Rice Group continue to do quite well, thank you very much.

In fact, Outside Magazine just named Sterling Rice Group one of the nation’s “Best Places to Work” on its annual list. The agency ranked #3 out of 50 companies.

In the past year, SRG launched a large private label food line (more than 120 skus) for Walmart called “World Table.” SRG also helped Cascadian Farms organic blueberries become the first brand with presence inside Farmville, the insanely popular Facebook game.

SRG was also just recognized by Ad Age, as a “Small Agency of the Year” in the 75 to 150 employees category. Ad Age notes that the agency that has its own culinary council and its own test kitchens. And that its telenovela-inspired El Monterey TV campaign resulted in a double-digit sales increase for the brand.

A good corporate citizen, SRG has donated $2 million in cash and services to charity since they opened their doors 28 years ago.

According to Boulder Daily Camera, Natural Habitat Adventures, environmental consultant EMPSi and Denver-based footwear designer Boa Technology are also on Outside’s best workplaces list.
