Spooky Halloween at MKTG Atlanta

Enter if you dare!

Enter if you dare!

Many offices have a little fun with Halloween. However, MKTG Atlanta continues to take to another level year after year with elaborate decorations and costumes – both of which can net our employees big cash prizes!

But it isn’t just about the adults here as a couple of dozen family members (and growing every year!!)  are invited into our warehouse for a fun costume party complete with office-wide trick-or-treating. Check out some of the great photos and a spooky video from this year’s festivities!

Halloween Bonfyre Heats Up Costume Creativity

without comments

To get our team into the Halloween spirit, MKTG INC worked with our friends at Bonfyre to give our employees an opportunity to submit photos of their best Halloween costumes for a chance to win a cash prize (and bragging rights).

We offered three categories for the submissions – the #SELFIE, the #FRIENDSTER and the #FAMILYPET. We received nearly 200 submissions from all six MKTG INC offices, with each team displayed impressive ingenuity and creativity. We all enjoyed the friendly competition.

Once we narrowed the submissions down a bit, we opened up the voting to our entire MKTG team – and more than 1600 people cast their vote!

Here are our winners (drumroll please…):

The Friendster: “Trapped in a Cage” by Kim Wehby (Cincinnati)

#FRIENDSTER

The Family Pet: “Dallas dressed as Carl from “UP”!” by Lindsey Munden (West Coast)

#FAMILYPET

The Selfie: “Pop Art comes to life in NYC” by Cassandra Ross (NYC)

#SELFIE

We enjoyed the contest so much that we’re planning another one for the holidays. Stay tuned!

So Superman, Obi-Wan Kenobi and a Ninja Turtle Walk Into a Bar…

Halloween HH

…Only to be met at the door by an army of John Demases.

Demases? No that doesn’t work. Demai? Demouses? Anyway, I digress. The point is that our NY studio team laid on the flattery by imitating (the man, the myth, the legend,) our very own designer guru and E-cigarette enthusiast John Demas…and boy did they nail it. There were beards aplenty, stylish eyeglasses, cardigans and yes, Keds.

While they weren’t busy taking family photos or hopping on client calls, our NY staff piled into the bar like a hoard of hungry zombies for our annual Halloween Happy Hour. I watched in horror as they attacked creepy cupcakes and poor defenseless pizza (RIP – Those poor pies never stood a chance).

Luckily, after a few “Pina Ghoulatas” and delicious “Sunset of the Damned” tequila sunrises – made by yours truly (to rave reviews, I might add),  the kooky crew settled into the party and enjoyed some quality time with their fellow MKTG’ers while Monster Mash blared in the background. A few kind folks even made generous donations in support of “Movember”.

Needless to say, it was a great time and we all felt like kids again in our quirky costumes. As the tradition of our Happy Hour rolls on like the great pumpkin, one thing is abundantly clear: MKTG INC puts the joy back in Halloween.

Trick or treat, Ya’ll.

Social Media Themed Halloween

without comments

"Take me to your media!"

"Take me to your media!"

I saw this picture in my “friendfeed” from a company in Boston. It made me smile because the costumes are in keeping with the social media immersion we’re experiencing on the web these days.  These women are dressed up as “chiclets.” For those who don’t know, ‘chiclets’ are icons that allow social media participants to share content, thoughts, and information among social networking sites with one click of the mouse. Cute, right?
