Idealog's vision is to equip New Zealanders with the inspiration and knowledge to help make New Zealand a more prosperous place. And we're looking for a commercial manager to make Idealog a more prosperous place and continue the momentum the award-winning title has built up over its 11-year history.
Covering technology, innovation, design, marketing, exporting and start-ups – and where these things intersect with culture – Idealog is published in print form three times a year in themed editions (technology, innovation and design) and delivers daily news and commentary through our website, EDMs and social channels. It also runs a number of live events.
Named Business Magazine of the Year for eight years in a row between 2005 and 2013, Idealog is one of the largest circulating business titles in New Zealand.
You will be engaging with audiences and advertisers across print, digital, social and events media. You need to bring to the table an understanding of modern media, the ability to multi-task and good ol' fashioned elbow grease.
Dealing with agencies as well as direct clients will be part of your day-to-day requirements and you will need to be able to deliver big deals across traditional advertising, creative sponsorship and branded content. The ability to think creatively with regard to finding new funding sources would also be valuable.
You will work closely with the publisher, the editorial staff, video production team, marketing and events managers, and commercial managers from other Tangible Media titles. You will report to the publisher.
This is a challenging but rewarding role. Tangible Media offers a stimulating, challenging and creative environment.
If you are interested in joining an innovative, dynamic and independent media company, please send your CV and covering letter to the publisher/editorial director Ben Fahy.
Sounds good. Though, with a reduction in the average number of agencies per pitch, I hope there are some provisions encouraging testing out smaller or new agencies as well. Look forward to reading.
Perhaps Agencies could employ these same best practice parameters when pitching Directors against each other?
When did JustOne become a 'digital specialist agency'?
An unsurprising but still disappointing decision from the toothless ASA and BSA - did TVCAB have any opinion on this? http://www.medialawjournal.co.nz/?p=682
I wasn't going to congratulate Craig on his appointment to MBM. Now I'll send him condolences.
Dick move from GF. Not their first, probably won't be their last.

Who's it for: Ecostore by DDB
Why we like it: For its first brand campaign, Ecostore is making itself heard with a powerful message about the future that will have the audience questioning their outlook. As a brand that promotes itself as being safe for consumers and the world they live in, examining the dichotomy between the optimism of youth and the pessimism of the older generation shows our environment doesn't have to be set for a future of melted ice caps and deforestation. There is hope out there and clearly, Ecostore wants to be apart of it.
Who's it for: Flick Electric by Special Ad Service
Why we like it: While many people have their aha moments in the shower or while exercising, others, according to Flick Electric, have them while performing taxidermy on birds. It may be an odd image for a power company, but the tongue-in-cheek approach shows the company is willing to have a bit of fun as it goes about recruiting new customers.
Who's it for: Jockey New Zealand by Parlour
Why we like it: It's hard to ignore the obvious appeal of seeing the All Blacks strip down to their Jockeys for the entirety of the video and for those who aren't as fazed by what lies beneath the black jersey, it's an insight into what the boys get up to off the field. Apparently, Anton Lienert Brown enjoys peanut butter on toast and sailing. And while special guest and former Shortland Street star Will Hall doesn't strip down completely, a special mention has to be given to his bravery to sit alongside the undressed All Blacks in just Jockeys and a robe.
