In 1912, McCann registered the world’s first advertising trademark ‘Truth Well Told’. In the century since, McCann has been home to some of the world’s greatest brands and some of the industry’s most renowned Truth Tellers. Bryce Courtenay. Phillip Adams. Theodore Geisel (or ‘Dr Seuss’ as you may know him). Great storytellers dedicated to unearthing the most compelling truths about our clients’ brands and conveying them in the most creative ways possible.

In December 1959, McCann opened its doors in Australia and set about uncovering the truths behind some of our own iconic brands. From ‘Louie the Fly’ to ‘The Milky Bar Kid’, ‘It’s Time’ for the Australian Labor Party and even the giant ‘Coke Sign’ in Sydney’s Kings Cross. 

In 2011, McCann merged with awarded local independent agency SMART, creating a new breed of agency with the leadership, processes, structures and DNA of a creative independent, backed by global resources and intellectual capital of the world’s largest agency network. 

With more than 180 offices in over 120 countries, including two Queensland offices, we’re part of the world’s largest advertising agency network. And as part of McCann Worldgroup, we provide our clients with a completely integrated and comprehensive marketing services offering.

It’s this creative ambition that keeps us on our toes, that makes us hungry for more and allows us to realize the impossible.

We are a hard working team of creative professionals committed to telling unique and powerful stories, films that draw audiences in and push them to think outside the square.

Content and television are our specialties, our aim: to help nurture a story into a powerful and effective narrative, designed to connect viewers with the feeling and emotion of an experience.

At Light + Shade we are proud of our team. Through all our work we make it our purpose to acquire the most cinematic images, seek the most compelling narratives and create unique films that keep eyes on screen and get people talking.

At SevenTwenty, we focus on recruitment for the marketing communications, digital, advertising and media sectors. And because we represent both job seekers and clients, we have quickly become an important conduit between the two.

In the shadows, but not in the dark

We know that as a recruitment firm, we might appear to be in the background. But while you probably won’t see us on stage at the next creative award show, we could well be the guys who put those winners where they are today.

Here for the long haul

By injecting as many talented people into the right positions, at the right time, we feel we’re quietly feeding the industry with a healthy dose of longevity.

Oh. And if you came here for the normal corporate spiel, we started in 2012 and have been going gangbusters ever since.
