GSD&M Alums’ New Agency Revealed

Well, that didn’t take long to uncover. A lovely tipster has informed us that the new agency reportedly formed by a group of ex-GSD&M-ers is called Greatest Common Factory. Interestingly though, we don’t see Karen Jacobs or John Trahar‘s names listed or even mentioned on the shop’s Geocities-era-looking site, but at least we know where eight-year GSD&M vet Jonathan Silverstein has ended up.
