Happy new year and in the news!

ChairmanHappy new year everybody!

Hope you’ve made your new years resolutions.

We have and one of them happens to be about celebrating our successes.

To start 2015, we’re celebrating on a couple of fronts.

The first: a new project we’re working on in a new market. Can’t say where just yet. But all will be revealed once the work is out. It’s a big step for Blak Labs and we’re really looking forward to the launch. And seeing how the market reacts. But judging by the client’s response to our rough edits for two spots shot between Christmas and New Year, we think the work will work.

Her words exactly? “I’m very happy, thank you very much!”

The second: well, you can see it for yourself. A little bit of PR in the Business Times publication “Chairman 2015”.

We’ve received numerous comments and likes for this little piece. And while features a pic of me, it’s all down to the hard work of my partners, team and clients as well.

To paraphrase our client – “We’re happy, thank you very much!”

Dell

The mother of all pitches and one that most agencies would shy away from. Dell wanted to build its brand and connect with customers. But it didn’t want to lose its original direct, transactional model. Apart being a drawn out exercise in procurement and technology planning, the pitch and the concept needed to be managed centrally for Asia-Pacific and allow for a high degree of customisation by the markets. We had the business for a year before it was realigned into the now-defunct Enfatico. The clients we worked with weren’t happy. Anyway, check out the case study and see how we moved them forward, ending up eventually with a new model that included retail outlets across Asia-Pacific.
