getting to know Alex Miller: take two

A familiar face. A familiar smile. From summer intern to full-time employee, MK3 is welcoming back our very own Alex Miller. In her second take, Alex seamlessly transitioned into the role of Associate Producer and Operations Manager here at MK3. And that means assisting and supporting our creative teams and owner Joel Kaplan – all of which plays a crucial role in MK3’s success.

Alex was quickly welcomed back because it seemed like she never left. And now that she’s experiencing even more of the company, she’s finding it to be a place that thrives on team chemistry, open communication and lots of good humor.

“Everyone knows each other so well and works together so seamlessly that you always know you have the full team behind you on every project.”

Alex Miller, Associate Producer and Operations Manager

When the offer to join MK3 full-time presented itself, it was an opportunity she couldn’t turn down. MK3’s creative capabilities and attention to detail was an attractive mix for her, and she knew she wanted to contribute to the team. Alex found her transition from student/intern to full-time MK3 employee a smooth one, not only because she’d already interned here, but she felt well prepared after four years at Emerson College.

Now her focus is to take that preparation and apply that excellence while paving her own path. Part of her duties when she was an intern was to help tell the MK3 story, through our social media marketing. It’s “take two” here at MK3 for Alex, and she’s ready to help us tell yours!

doing more with less: the benefits of a mid-size team

People like to say “there’s strength in numbers,” but in the fast-moving world of digital marketing, sometimes “less is more.” Here at MK3, we provide clients with in-house creative solutions, and we do it all with a tight-knit team!

nimble numbers

The formula is simple: fewer people leads to higher efficiency. Despite our smaller team size, MK3 continues to stand out and stand up against our much larger competitors. Within our mid-sized team, everyone is aware not only of their own responsibilities, but  of those around them as well – which makes for ease of collaboration and project sharing. By having a smaller, more nimble group, we’re capable of turning small projects around quickly, and turning large projects into team efforts.

jack of all trades

With a mid-sized team also comes flexibility. Every member of our team plays a crucial role not only in our success, but in our clients’ success. To ensure we’re meeting deadlines and communicating with our clients effectively, we all have the ability to wear more than one “hat” at once.  For a mid-size team, our most important skill might be adaptability – the ability to adapt, pivot, and move quickly from one project, and one skill set, to the next. At MK3, when it comes to “hats” – one size fits all.

the three c’s

Collaboration, communication, and culture. They’re vital to any team, but at MK3 they’re the keys to our success. Our “open team” culture encourages a free flow of information and ideas – creative directors brainstorm with producers, and interns often work directly with our owner.  By cutting out the dreaded “middle man,” we’re able to be direct and transparent with our clients as well. This helps build strong relationships, allowing our clients to not only trust us with their projects, but with their vision as well.

“MK3 offers an open line of communication between the client and the creatives, so there’s nothing lost in translation.”  Joel Kaplan, Principal/Founder

MK3 can tackle any project by working together and being flexible. At MK3 we’ve created a fun and fast-paced work environment where each member is essential and appreciated, and every voice has the ability and authority to make an impact…on our business and yours.
