Matt Sitser, Dustin Taylor & David Soames @ The Shop
After nearly a decade of working together at Moroch Partners, award-winning creative directors David Soames and Dustin Taylor, along with lead account director Matt Sitser, recently announced the launch of The Shop, a creative-first advertising agency based in Dallas. Soames and Taylor will serve as managing partners and creative directors, and Sitser will be managing partner and lead account director.
The Shop offers a wide array of services to its client partners, including but not limited to traditional advertising (broadcast, print and outdoor), digital & social, website development, experiential, and media planning and buying. The Dallas-based agency is located in Deep Ellum at 2919 Commerce Street, Suite 547.
“We created The Shop out of our shared passion for turning our clients into brands people are talking about – brands that have a story to tell and fully recognize the value of their long-term identity,” said Sitser. “Our agency aims to do groundbreaking work, while helping our clients achieve their tangible business goals.”
The agency’s largest client is Tiff’s Treats, a baked-to-order cookie delivery company headquartered in Austin, Texas, and one of the hottest growing brands nationwide. Tiff’s Treats has hired The Shop as its agency of record (AOR), following no formal review. The Shop is handling Tiff’s Treats’ traditional advertising, digital and social media.
“We’ve long admired Dustin and David’s award-winning work for McDonald’s,” said Leon Chen, co-founder of Tiff’s Treats. “The team at The Shop is unwavering in its commitment to bold, brave ideas and impactful creative. We are excited to partner with them as we continue to build and grow the Tiff’s Treats brand nationwide.”
The Shop is also working with brands from a wide variety of categories, including Boomerang’s, Dallas Gold & Silver Exchange, FLEk and ParkDIA.
“Our mission is simple. We want to make great things with great people – and we do it with fresh thinking, meticulous craft and tireless persistence,” said Soames. “Tiff’s Treats is such a great brand and we’re looking forward to creating highly impactfull creative to elevate this beloved company.”
