Our guiding beliefs and values that define who we are, what we do (and don’t), and why we do it:
- Mek is committed to upholding the highest ethical standards with sensitivity and empathy toward social, cultural, animal, economic, and environmental issues.
- Mek only works with companies that treat employees, suppliers, customers, communities, and the environment fairly, respectfully, and responsibly.
- Mek does not engage projects that involve single-use products, destruction of habitat, promotion of animal cruelty, or an adverse impact on people or the planet.
- Mek is a carbon neutral company located in a solar powered purpose-built premises created with the assistance of the Sustainable Melbourne Fund.
- Mek is partnered with One Tree Planted to plant a tree in our clients’ name for every new project we complete. Trees will be planted in Australia to restore native habitats and recover forests affected by the 2019–20 Black Summer bushfires.
- Mek is a paperpless company. Our studio materials are plastic free, cruelty free, and not tested on animals.
- In an effort to minimise our impact and not cause unnecessary harm, we regularly assess our use of resources, materials, and processes.
- We only recommend sustainable solutions to our clients across print, packaging, and spatial materials. We partner with trusted suppliers educated on the latest technologies and innovations for reducing waste and environmental impact.
- As advocates for equality, diversity, and inclusion, we established and run Womentor, a global mentorship program for women in graphic design.
- Each year we donate time, profit, or resources to organisations for important causes. Mek is a proud supporter of Armenia Fund, Edgar's Mission, Sea Shepherd Australia, and Animals Australia.
We’re not perfect, but we’re doing our best. We want to work with people who are too.
