If you answered Yx3 then it’s Winner Winner, Chicken Dinner for you! We’re Young+Shand; Auckland-based digi ad agency and NZ’s largest indie. And we’re looking add to our creative awesomeness across a number of spots.
But in case we’ve not met, a little bit about us. Right now we’re about 50+ peeps with a creative dept of about 20. Creatively speaking, we’re made up of copywriters, art directors, digi designers, and front and back end devs. We even have a full time agency DOP and a 3D/motion wizard. And that means whatever brilliance you dream up, we can make in-house.
Clients we work with on the reg feats. such names as 2degrees, Steinlager, Speight’s, Mac’s, Smirnoff, V, NZI, and NZ Blood just for starters. And we’re centrally located in Britomart, which puts us (and you) in the centre of everything.
We’ve just added a few new clients into this tasty mix, which is why we’re putting the word out for a few more creative peeps. If all this sounds kinda awesome, then stop reading and start writing. You can get in touch with us here:
PS. We also do free lunch every Fridays and have a chiller full of beer for your pleasure… not that this would influence your decision or anything.
I have absolutely no desire to eat tissue paper packaging, whether it's edible or not. This is just silly.
We need more joke skywriting in New Zealand. https://www.huffingtonpost.com/2013/05/15/how-do-i-land-skywriting_n_3276795.html
love this, amazing story!
Great article with Paul C's inimitable humour
Good luck FCB. Anyone care to share what it's like working with Samsung as a client? Think "cluster"
From what I heard, both companies were missing the mark so probably a smart move. Interesting that UX, CX and ‘organisational design’ (whatever that is) are cited as a core pillar of the combined entity when neither were considered strong ...
Honouring the ads—and the agencies responsible for them—that make the biggest impact on consumers and get more bang for the client’s buck.

Who’s it for: Sky by DDB
Why we like it: What first appears to be the start of a drama turns out to be a campaign promoting Sky's drama line-up. The calibre of the acting (Hacksaw Ridge’s Tyler Coppin and Top of the Lakes’ Alison Bruce), the director (Academy Award nominee Derin Seale) and minimal use of lighting lends itself to a sophisticated and suspenseful ad you wish was a series on its own. It's also a great use of breaking through the fourth estate with the cheating husband describing what’s happening to get people thinking about the husband and wife's relationship as well as the genre in general.
Who’s it for: Lightbox by Spark PR & Activate
Why we like it: We like things with a New Zealand twist and this one playing on American drama Suits brings big laughs with its deft touch of Kiwi awkwardness. The 80s mise-en-scene, mundane jobs and forced office comradery - far from the polished and exciting drama of the proper Suits - is a fun and funny way to introduce the newest season.
Who’s it for: Survivor New Zealand by TVNZ
Why we like it: Brandishing blood and mud, Survivor New Zealand is back for round two in northern Thailand. While the scenery looks idyllic, it's set to be an intense and exciting time if the promotional video is anything to go by, with mud wrestling, tears, dubious tactics from participants, success and disappointments galore on show. While Survivor has been reproduced many times around the world, local faces and scraps should bring the viewers onboard for another reality competition.
