MKTG San Francisco: Laying A Solid Foundation for Their City’s Future

without comments


MKTG San Francisco took to the streets in the name of urban cultivation with their first official MKTG:Focus, 2016 Corporate Social Responsibility event. On Thursday, August 25, MKTG teamed up with Friends of the Urban Forest, whose mission is to promote a larger, healthier urban forest as part of the urban ecosystem. Our tough and willing West Coast colleagues spent their summer outting getting down and dirty without hesitation. MKTGers worked a stretch of three blocks in San Francisco’s thriving Dogpatch neighborhood, jumping ‘knee deep’ into garden beds- working on their foundations, soil amending and prepping for the planting that would happen a few days later.  Growing plants native to California was the focus, including the colorfully named Sticky Monkey Flower and Checkerbloom.

Though work is taken pretty seriously at MKTG San Francisco, they also know how to have fun. After giving back to their fair city, the San Fran team tapped into their competitive side and brought it back to the good ol’ days with a game of sloshball! (For all of you sloshball newbies, it is kickball accompanied by beer). With drink-in-hand, Team 2 threw in quite a few mighty defense plays but in the end, it was Team 1 who conquered the bases and brought the trophy home, ending a victorious day in the city by the bay.

The BLG Friday Feature is the QCK3 (QUICK THREE). This is where BLG engages in a verbal romp with a friendly MKTG INC employee. Rules of engagement? The introduction is the back of your business card and the corresponding photo is randomly selected from your Facebook page. Hide the womens and childrens!

This week’s subject: Mary Anne

Mary Anne’s designer eyes see thing differently from the rest of us. She sees the same things we do, but with an additional dimension. Are we saying 4D? Yes, we are. She can dimensionalize (not a word) a given product or service and translate it via her vision and skill into something more than the sum of itself  – a something that inspires imagination, grabs peoples’ interest, their loyalty and, finally, their wallets. Is this a complicated way of saying she can really bring a concept to life? Yes, it is.

BLG: I like the warrior photo. You look like you’re ready for battle.

MRYNN: Oh I am. My friend hurt his head and had to wear a wrap around it. So we all wore headbands in solidarity.

BLG: And it’s red! Like the bows on Mary Anne from Gilligan’s Island pigtails! So who’s your Professor?

MRYNN: Gillian’s Island reference. So original.  *PUNCHES BLG*

BLG: Ouch! Sorry! You’re fiesty. No wonder they keep you in the Creative Cage. What do you do besides make pretty pictures and dole out sweet karate chops to people making Gilligan’s Island references?

MRYNN: I ride my bike, play kickball, take mini road trips, go to concerts, you know.

BLG: Biking! Do you know how to change a bike tire? That is always impressive. Or change a car tire? That’s more impressive.

MRYNN: No, I don’t know how to change and if I did I wouldn’t tell you – I’m afraid of change.

BLG: You sound like you live in Brooklyn. What’s a typical evening in BK like?

MRYNN: Usually hanging with friends, drinking with strangers, cutting my jeans into shorts and talking about feelings.

BLG: Friends! Strangers! Cocktails! Jorts! A girl after our own heart.
