Welcome to Mark. A Direct, Digital and Data Agency. These are some of the projects we've been working on, social events we've been to, things that have inspired us, and the kinds of people we're looking for to join our team.

Yuletide Luncheon.

It's that time of the year for a few mince pies, tasteful decorations and polite conversation.

Failing that though, the Mark Accounts Staff Christmas lunch is a decent event. It included beer, pizza and one of our client-facing stars, Sam (second from the right) threatening to jump in the pool.

Sam actually got as far as taking his shirt, socks and even belt off...before deciding the water was too cold for his sensitive skin and wussing out.

Merry Christmas yall!

Finalists galore at The Caples.

The Caples Finalist list has just been announced and Mark have done remarkably well.

We've been nominated for 13 finalists which we hope to convert when the judging is announced.

Amongst them were entries across many of our clients including Qantas, Optus, EMI, ANZ and Samsung.

Samsung Mr Knowitall campaign has picked up a total of five finalists including Social Media, Microsite, Viral Video Marketing, Online and Interactive campaign.

Our campaign Wear it with Pride for Acon also picked up finalists in Out of home and Launch campaign.

Exciting times, not least because of the impending wrestling match over who gets to go and pick the awards up in America.

Puppy love.

A big thanks to our clients at RSPCA, who just brought in a beautiful litter of puppies for us to adore.

They were recently saved from a puppy factory - a large-scale commercial business that produces puppies for sale in large numbers, with little care for their welfare.

We were all smitten, particularly resident tough guy, Steve (pictured).

If you're interested in adopting a furry friend, or donating to a very worthy cause this Christmas, visit http://www.rspca.org.au/

Party like it's 1959.

Last night it was time to rewind and unwind with our wonderful Melbourne clients at the 2010 Christmas Party.

The Mark/M&C Saatchi Country Club was a 1950s soiree of epic proportions - and there were certainly a few martini headaches this morning, darling.

A big thanks to all of our clients and Melbourne team for making it a night to remember.
