    BOSTON, Mass.; March 1, 2010 –  In response to the increasing demand for creative services and multi-media  production for its events and public relations clients, The Castle Group has expanded its capabilities through a joint venture with MK3 Creative, an Emmy® award-winning production company. Housed in Castle’s offices in the Charlestown Navy Yard and fully integrated with Castle’s existing team, MK3 delivers the resources and experience to provide clients with critical marketing services that are natural complements to Castle's marketing communications and event management expertise.

    MK3 Creative combines the storytelling ability of an ad agency with the in-house capabilities of a production company. This includes video and event production, concept and copywriting, graphic design and interactive/digital services. As a result of this relationship, Castle’s offices now include an on-site video editing suite, as well as a portable suite to service clients at their offices, conferences and other remote locations.

    “As the lines blur further among marketing disciplines, there is a growing need among clients for marketing integration including traditional and social media, websites and events. By partnering with MK3, we have created an efficiency of resources that allows our clients to experience high-level creative services including video production, web and presentation design, and event production in sync with our established PR and events practices,” said Castle Group Principal and Co-Founder Wendy Spivak. “We have had many successful experiences working with MK3. We know this venture is an excellent fit in terms of our philosophies, work styles and the broad range of capabilities we can offer to clients.

    “This is a not just a new model for delivering communications services, it's the right model – and a great way to collaborate with our clients and grow long-term relationships,” said Joel Kaplan, account services/partner, MK3 Creative.
