Who’s Got the Biggest Unit in Austin?

I just read an article at Austin.bizjournals.com about how T3 has grown and recovered after losing Dell to Enfatico. More on that later, but I need some input from other in regards to this line from the piece:

“T3, the second-largest advertising firm in Austin”

Is that true? Is T3 packing the 2nd biggest unit in the Austin Ad-firm family. I assume GSD&M is the largest and Enfatico has got to be up there. Kolar is pretty big too and nFusion has a few folks. Even LatinWorks has a good crew and SpringBox seems to be hiring a few. I know I’m leaving a few others off this list and I could easily pull out my book-of-list to check out the rankings, but I’m sure someone out there can shed some light on this.

LatinWorks adds to la familia

Austin-based advertising agency LatinWorks has announced the purchase of Dallas-based ad agency Cultura. The amount paid has not been disclosed. Both agencies focus on the hispanic market and both had previously given up a minority stake to Omnicom. The media conglomerate will still hold a small stack in the merged group. A majority of Cultura’s Dallas-based staff as well as chief executive Greg Knipp will be moving down to Austin to join the LatinWorks familia in their new digs in the newly renovated Capital Tower. Capital Tower will also be home to Dell/WPP’s Project Davinci.
