The Partners celebrate our first birthday

The agency founders chose Friday 13th to celebrate 1 year (and 2 days) of CumminsRoss.

Always supporting our business community in St Kilda, they went to one of the neighbourhood favourites – The Stokehouse – to acknowledge the occasion.


Jason and Sean were presented with framed and signed photos of a poignant moment during the early stages of the agency.

Said Jason “a year is a long time in advertising and it was nice to reflect for a moment. But having said that we have only just started and there is little time for nostalgia. We have an exciting year coming up in 2012 and we hope to continue our surprising journey”.


Added Sean “we do things a little differently here. As much as there is an industry called advertising, there is no real industry collective, so you really have to listen to your own heart, believe in your own principles and be true to your standards. We don’t follow the herd, we don’t crave praise, and we don’t need external validation. We work for the betterment of our clients brands, not for self aggrandisement. If we do great work for our clients, that’s the best reward”.

The food was great and the stories flowed as easily as the wine…always enjoyed responsibly. It was midnight as this picture was taken. Which proves the point!
