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.
On Wednesday it was time for the kids to get festive at the M&C Saatchi / Mark Children’s Christmas Party. There were party pies, proud parents, face painting, pick and mix, and a portly grey-haired man in a red suit.
The highlight of the party had to be the special appearance of DJ Lance from Yo Gabba Gabba! It was like every single Christmas arrived at once… and was dressed in orange.
The sugar-highs have faded, but the memories remain.
Thursday was a sad day for the agency, when with a few strokes of a razor, our glorious mustachioed men of Mark joined the ranks of their fellow mortals once again.
Sporting haired lips that would make Joaquin Phoenix proud, they managed to raise a huge $3,808 for men's health, which for those of you who love a case study is 26% above target and a staggering 3,808% ROI.
Some impressive figures from some impressive moustaches.
Last night Rebecca Bezzina (pictured above left with Mark MD Simone Blakers) won 2011 ADMA Young Direct Marketer of the Year. It’s a huge achievement and we’re extremely proud of her. The award was given in recognition of her ability to take direct strategy and apply it to innovative new media.
She gets a big trophy and a big trip to Las Vegas for her troubles. Watch this space for updates on her adventures during 2012 as winner.
The Ping-Pong by Noise DM piece is doing the rounds at the award shows as we speak and is proving to be a real contender. Not only is it a finalist in multiple categories in the upcoming ADMA and Caples awards, but the video just picked up a bronze medal for best sound design at the prestigious London International Awards. This is a huge achievement as it was the only Australian piece to even be nominated in the category.
