Cranford Co. Stakes Claim in Creative Corridor

Founded with a mission to bring Madison Avenue-quality advertising to Main Street Little Rock, Cranford Co. has literally and physically achieved that goal by taking over the corner space of the Arkansas Building at Sixth and Main. “We are thrilled to make this next step in our agency’s growth,” said Ross Cranford, who founded the agency along with his brothers Jay and Chris in July 2014.  “As longtime supporters of Downtown Little Rock and the Creative Corridor, it’s incredibly exciting to see all of the energy returning to this vital section of our city.”


“In the last year, we’ve won and serviced more than forty new clients. And we won three National ADDYs—American Advertising Awards—more than every agency in Dallas, combined,” said Jay Cranford, chief creative officer for the agency. “But being immersed in the energetic creative cauldron of the Main Street corridor can only help us take our work to the next level and achieve even greater success.”


“The office of the future is about bringing people together to collaborate. We look forward to continuing collaboration with our neighbors in the Creative Corridor and the Technology Park,” said Chris Cranford. Cranford Co. has partnered with their neighbors on the Creative Corridor on a number of projects, helping The Arkansas Rep, and Ballet Arkansas with videos, ads, social media, and more.


Working with new technology startups has also been an early focus of Cranford Co, including client Broadband Development Group who’s HyperLeap Internet service will bring blazing fast gigabit bandwidth to 524 Main Street. “This is the same super high speed bandwidth you see from Google Fiber in places like Kansas City and Austin,” said Lou McAlister, founder of Broadband Development Group. “We’ve loved working with our fellow startup, Cranford Co., to develop the branding for this powerful new Internet technology making its debut in downtown Little Rock.”


“Hyper Leap’s gigabit bandwidth will be incredibly helpful as we work with our clients from California to Florida sending large digital files for high definition videos and multi-media ad campaigns,” said Jay Cranford.


In addition to moving to a new location, Cranford Co. has added two new employees to the roster: Mark Renner as Director of Business Development and Amanda Seevers as Producer.
