SAN FRANCISCO, March 29, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- The good news continues to roll in for digital media agency, Mediasmith. The independent media agency has acquired two new clients; creative publishing & marketing platform Blurb and eMusic, a discovery and download destination for music enthusiasts.
"Mediasmith is pleased to associate with both of these fine companies," said Mediasmith CEO and Founder David L. Smith. "Our recent new client additions will add $10MM in billings and quality revenue to our growing list of clients. Media and entertainment are important channels for Mediasmith and these two clients fit right into our sweet spot." Smith indicated that all aspects of these accounts would be handled out of San Francisco.
For both accounts, Mediasmith has been named media AOR for all media. Blurb started as a Social Media and Analytics assignment for Mediasmith in summer of 2011.

They've been a great partner and we see the agency as a trusted extension of our marketing team.
eMusic went through a quiet RFP process last fall. Mediasmith emerged as the victor to implement both branding and DR efforts for the music service.
"Mediasmith demonstrated a clear understanding of our target audience, creative media ideas, and a passion for the Music business that made it clear they were a solid choice for us. We are very excited to be working with them," said Randy McKelvey, VP, Media for eMusic.
