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.

Ping-Pong by Noise.

Mark has created a digital DM campaign to help launch the first annual "Ping-Pong by Noise" inter-agency ping-pong tournament with a bang.

The piece comprises a specially designed iApp (pictured) that enables two players to ping it out via their iPhones on a dinky mini table. The centerpiece of the campaign is a Dean Tirkot-directed web film, shot in the style of a Nike commercial with a comical twist, starring Aussie table tennis legends Paul Pinkewich and Trent Carter.

The ping-pong smash will be held over three consecutive Thursday evening in May and June. The hefty prize pool includes $1,500 for first place, $600 for second and $300 for third, plus a stack of extra Noise-related items and spot prizes for best-dressed. The winners will also take away the priceless Ping Pong trophy and associated glory.

Star Recruit .

There’s a new face melting a few hearts down at our digital production agency – Make. Her name is Razzle and she belongs to star producer Steph Sims.

Although she only put in a brief appearance, she’s left a big mark on the hearts of our digi team (and under Maggsy’s desk). She had just enough time for a quick photo call, draining iPhone batteries across the office, then put in an appearance at the Friday meeting where she stole the limelight from top dog Simon McMaster.

We’ll hopefully be seeing a bit more of this little cutie.

April Fools.

It was all fun and games in Melbourne this morning as a couple of pranksters decided to send us on a wild goose chase to the building cafe. Muffin-filled dreams were dashed and hilarity ensued.
