our story

Fiercely independent. And staying that way.

We aren’t beholden to shareholders or a holding company, but are big enough to provide the specialized services needed in today’s complex marketing landscape. This gives us the freedom to focus more on our clients, our people, and doing good work.

Where we started

We started in 2002 in Downtown San Diego, California. Through various industry connections (and some pro-bono work), we landed a handful of early projects, allowing us to quickly expand beyond our team of four. In 2004, we acquired Avencom to balance our creative capabilities with their technical abilities, growing Red Door Interactive to 20 people.

 

Where we are now

Red Door Interactive is now a full-service marketing agency, with resources all over the globe. We pride ourselves in being data-driven in everything we do, and have been nationally recognized over the years for both our work and our awesome workplaces.

  • Two offices, with worldwide remote locations
  • Over 80 employees (and counting)
  • Best Places to Work winner for several years in a row
  • Privately held, independently owned

Where we are headed

We want to remain independent from holding companies, so that we can maintain an approach that is more objective, more transparent, and more agile. We want to continue to grow by adding entrepreneurial people with a passion for what we do.
 
We expect to expand geographically beyond San Diego and Denver, and already have people working in Indianapolis, Salt Lake City, New Orleans, Phoenix, Tijuana, and Manila.
 
We always evaluate new technology and monitor consumer trends, so that we can stay ahead of the innovation curve and find ways to evolve. Advances in areas like AI, Voice Search, Mobile, Cloud, and Social, along with generational differences, are changing consumer behavior, making the customer journey—and marketers’ jobs—more and more complex. Navigating this new landscape not only requires a transformative approach that blends technology and talent, but also a balance between long-term priorities and short-term necessities. If you want help sorting it all out, join us on our journey!
