We’ve worked with long-time creative partners The Glue Society to create two films for Tourism Western Australia, exploring the extraordinary power of shared experience to reconnect us with those close to us.

1001 EXTRAORDINARY EXPERIENCES

TWA - 1001 EXTRAORDINARY EXPERIENCES

Our new campaign for Tourism Western Australia showcases 1001 Extraordinary Experiences from the great state of Western Australia, in an interactive film and website.

Each experience is captured in a photo, all 1001 of which were selected from thousands submitted by the community of fans of Western Australia, from all over the world. It’s been an immense but really special task to curate them in a way that tells a story about how truly extraordinary a state Western Australia is.

Watch the interactive film and browse curated images on the website, or join the conversation on Facebook.

 
#IndigenousPM

We’ve just launched a campaign for the Australian Indigenous Education Foundation with creative partners The Glue Society.

Newspoll data says that two thirds of Australians believe they’ll never see an Indigenous Prime Minister in their lifetime. AIEF believes that we can, and are invested in addressing the issue at its core by reducing Aboriginal secondary education inequality in Australia.

Host Appoints First ECDs.

Congratulations are in order to Bob Mackintosh, who this week has become Host Sydney’s first ever Executive Creative Director, and Noah Regan, who picks up the same role for Host Singapore. 

Thirteen years ago Host established an identity as an agency without a creative department, and while we continue to grow a modern creative department with a long list of collaborators around the world, it’s great to have two extremely smart  people heading up teams in each of our offices.

Here’s to 2013′s creative output being more prolific than ever!

 
Lend Us Some Muscle.

The creative industry has lent their creative muscle to Kaija Wall, the Broadcast Production Director at Host Sydney. 
 
Kaija’s son, Jai, has been diagnosed with Friedreich’s Ataxia, a rare genetic disease. Sadly there is no cure, so to raise awareness and more importantly to raise money to help fund research, Host and a few pals have created a campaign called Lend Us Some Muscle.
 
 We’re asking people to show their support on Facebook, share our video and lend some financial muscle with a donation
