The Starr Conspiracy, a Fort Wort-based strategic marketing and advertising agency for enterprise software and services companies, announced Monday the company is now co-locating to San Francisco, to both better serve longtime clients there and to work with new startups in the area.
TSC’s Intelligence Unit has operated in San Francisco since 2014, led by TSC Partner Steve Smith. Now the entire agency will be co-located in the historical Clocktower Building at 461 2nd St.,expanding its presence in the city.
“Our work elevates brands that aspire to become market leaders and it helps them maintain that position,” Smith said. “Not only will we continue to deliver exceptional results for market leaders and category challengers, but we’re increasing our ability to serve more startups — which benefit from TSC’s lead generation, brand recognition, and market share services.”
.The Starr Conspiracy was founded in 1999, and in 2014, the firm had capitalized billings of more than $29 million. The company says revenues have consistently grown at an annual rate close to 20 percent and in 2013 and 2014, they were included in the Inc. 5000 list of the fastest-growing private companies in the United States.
The Starr Conspiracy focuses on marketing and advertising for HR and enterprise software and solutions companies.
Sidenote: The Clock Tower Building was originally constructed in 1907 for the Max Schmidt Lithograph Corp, a printing firm that designed and produced those classic California fruit box labels and posters for the Panama Public International Expedition. (see example)
According to the Virtual Museum of San Francisco website:
The Schmidt Lithography Co. clock tower, at Second and Bryant streets in San Francisco, is a well-known landmark to people who travel the Bay Bridge, or live or work in the Multimedia Gulch or South Beach districts.
Schmidt Lithography Co. was once the largest printing company on the West Coast, and the two-square-block plant, at one time, boasted handball and volleyball courts, a hospital and roof gardens.”
