A very big THANK YOU to everyone who attended our screening of ‘Changing the world is the only fit work for a grown man’, with special guest and Gossage biographer Steve Harrison. Howard Luck Gossage was an ad man of the 1960s, who rejected Madison Avenue and believed that advertising was best used for social purposes. For anyone who has worked with Marlin before, you will know that Gossage is the man we most admire, and we are grateful to Steve Harrison for bringing us even closer to him through his biography, and now his documentary. After the screening we had a Gossage themed paper plane competition to give away the proceeds of the night to the winner’s chosen charity. Marlin designer Martin won, and selected our client in Melbourne, the Lost Dogs’ Home. Marlin director Dan then hosted a Q&A with Steve Harrison, allowing Marliners, our clients and special guests to learn more about how to best use advertising for social good.
