This month the Garden District Civic Association is delighted to spotlight Red Six Media, a full-service media and advertising agency, owned and operated by Garden District resident Matt Dardenne.
Matt along with several of his LSU’s Manship School of Mass Communication classmates started Red Six Media one month after graduating from LSU. Red Six Media got its start at the Louisiana Business and Technology Center business incubator program. After graduating from that program and building their business, Matt and his partners moved to 3rd St. in downtown Baton Rouge where they have been located for the past seven years. In June of this year, Red Six Media celebrated their tenth year in business.
Matt states that their business culture and creativity make their business unique. The company was named a Best Place to Work by the Baton Rouge Business Report in September. “We have an amazingly talented and tight knit team who love our work and each other. We affectionately refer to our services set as the Red Six-Pack: Advertising, Design, Video, Digital, Strategy, and Branding. From creating a company brand and logo to building websites to developing integrated ad campaigns and placing and producing media across all traditional, digital and social platforms, we help clients reach their goals and solve their problems with creative solutions.”
Red Six Media currently has twenty employees who Matt states are proud to work with clients from across many industries. Notable clients include Dow, ExxonMobil, Turner Industries, Austin Industrial, Party Time, Tiger Athletic Foundation, LSU’s Manship School of Mass Communication, and Rotolo’s Pizzeria.
The company is civically involved and supports their neighbors by volunteering services to various Baton Rouge non-profits including; The Capital Area United Way (CAUW), Cancer Services of Greater Baton Rouge, and Mid City Gras. Matt also serves on the board of Friends of Louisiana Public Broadcasting.
