Memorable advertising.

Number three in the People of Bangkok campaign. This is shaping up to be an interesting body of work, and we have it on good authority that this is nowhere near the last - the series is set to run and run. Already the campaign is having an effect, with several Bangkok websites having featured the work as well as The Nation and Krungthep Turakij running stories on this most intriguing of initiatives. It seems like the people of Bangkok have been waiting for something like the People of Bangkok for a while, and it's an idea whose time has come. We always talk about 'pro bono' work - the original meaning of pro bono being 'for good.' This work is pro bono in the correct sense of the term.

Welcome to McCannes.

Kings of the Croisette.

McCann Thailand scored an incredible thirteen entries onto the Cannes shortlist. That is not a typographical error: the number is thirteen. 13. The number after 12.

That's more than any other agency in Thailand. More than any other McCann. More than the entire country of Australia, for God's sake.

Acuvue. Boots. Super Lock. Rising Sun Fertliser.

All brilliant work.

Welcome to McCannes.

A moving story.

Now that Worldgroup Centre is nearly complete, we'll be moving into our new offices next week.

A distance of 2.61km from the existing office, but now a building of our own, with its own restaurant, cafe, gym and games room - not to mention a superb rooftop which will no doubt be the scene of some truly excellent parties. Check out the exact location here.

Haul. (Continued.)

More awards. Tee & Chong's wacky 'smelly fish' campaign (see This work stinks) bagged a whole bunch of finalist positions at the Adman awards. As did their Acuvue disposable ad. As well as Santi & Naree's brilliant 'Crocodile Bird' TVC for Dentyne, which we'll post soon.

Excellent work. Excellent work.
