Why Do Trends Start In Australia?

Penelope Holloway Original Thinking, Working at H+K Leave a Comment

Both Cherry Coke and Coke Zero appeared on Australian grocery shelves long before the United States had even dreamed such things could exist. The McDonald’s McCafé concept debuted in 1993 in Melbourne, while the United States was the 18th country where it launched. And Australians were building the farms of their dreams in the über-addictive “FarmVille 2” long before the …

Every now and then, H+K like to sing our own praises for the work we’ve done for a client, and this is one of those rare times… We’ve really smashed it out of the park for the Australian Senior Insurance Agency (ASIA), if we do say so ourselves. In the last couple of months, we embarked on a particularly ambitious …

As the awardee of Hill+Knowlton’s popular Dave Robinson Scholarship, senior consultant Stephan Telka has been on secondment in H+K Australia – a long way from his usual digs in the Ottawa office. Ever since Stephan arrived, he’s been a stellar addition to the team. But now, sadly… sniff, sniff… that journey is coming to an end as he departs sunny Sydney and heads back to below-zero temperatures for …

How authentic can brands get?

Martina Corona Cool, Digital, Image, Managing an Agency, MarComms, Original Thinking Leave a Comment

In the world of public relations, transparency is key. In order to connect with our audience we have to be honest about the work that we are doing, and the products and services we are promoting. Consumers expect brand authenticity, but how do brands maintain their authenticity when the concept of authenticity itself is evolving? Last week I attended an …

And the good news is, he loved it! So much so, Josh promptly decided to file his first blog for H+K. (Which, hopefully, will now inspire other more long-term staff here …
