Griff/SMC Flying Into Their Next Decade

BOULDER, CO (September 1, 2005) - Now 30 years young, Griff/SMC is celebrating three decades of creative excellence and community involvement. Boulder’s oldest full service advertising agency and the Rocky Mountain region’s leading medical marketing communications firm thinks the next 10 years will be even better!

"Flying Into Our Next Decade," the firm’s 30th anniversary celebration, will also raise awareness and help provide funds for aerial firefighting resources to be administered by the Boulder County Wildland Fire Cooperators (BCWFC).

The anniversary celebration took wing on Saturday, August 27th with the unfurling of a gigantic banner on the side of the Griff/SMC offices at 954 Pearl Street. The agency has been located on the Boulder Mall for most of its 30-year history.

Originally serving business-to-business accounts in the Rocky Mountain region, Griff/SMC soon built expertise and gained recognition in the growing medical technology industry. Today, Griff/SMC continues to provide award-winning strategic marketing and creative support to clients in a wide variety of medical product and service categories. "We’re proud of the global brands we’ve helped to build," says Bob Griff, founder, president and creative director of Griff/SMC. "We’re especially proud that our home base remains in Boulder where we’ve always taken an active role in the local community."

During the two-week celebration of the firm’s anniversary, Rhumba, one of Boulder’s landmark restaurants located at 950 Pearl Street, will accept contributions from the public in support of the BCWFC. These donations will assist in the training of firefighters and the purchase of much-needed equipment to fight wildfires from the air. On September 7, Rhumba will donate 40 percent of sales of their special "Firefighters’ Platter" to the BCWFC.

Founded in 1975 as Griff Advertising & Public Relations, Griff/SMC is the preeminent independent medical marketing communications firm in the Rocky Mountain region, and the oldest full-service advertising agency in Boulder, Colorado.
