Here’s a crazy bit of news: two small San Francisco agencies that have spent eons (nay, years) in competition over the same clients have (dun dun duuun) merged. The two shops, Grant, Scott & Hurley and BuderEngel, are now one, consisting of 28 addies (we did the math right, right?).

The new shop is called Engine Company 1, because it’s in an old firehouse. Oh San Fran, you (no, not you’re, you) so eclectic. Hmm, were any addies laid off in the process of merging the businesses?

More on that here.

Then there’s Jaime Robinson and Lauren Harwell, an ACD team that just signed up with that agency, Pereira & O’Dell, which we told you all about last April. The pair come from Evolution Bureau, an agency of local mehtoriety.
