Mekanism first emerged on the scene in 2003 as a production shop dedicated to telling stories on new-media platforms, evident in highly entertaining integrated tales for the likes of Napster, Sega, Microsoft and more. Since then, though, the company has evolved into an independent agency unto its own.
With offices in San Franciso and New York, Mekanism is now known for integrated Super Bowl campaigns for PepsiCo, as well as broadcast and digital efforts for The North Face, Nike, Method, GE, The White House and more. The work has helped the company earn plenty of awards hardware, including honors at Cannes and Ad Age's Small Agency Awards and Agency A-List package.
At the company's creative helm is founder and Executive Creative Director Tommy Means, an Atlanta native who started out his career as a director but proves to have creative chops across a spectrum of "industries," as you'll see in this week's installment of Six Things.
