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.
Nice work guys.
Abolustely gutted to see Paul go, he’s been an awesome leader at 99 and bought a great vibe to the agency. He will no doubt smash it on his next endeavour and I wish him all the best, they are ...
What a loss for 99, but I’m sure Troy will carry on your good work. A true advertising legend and an agent of change leaving before the fruits of his labour are fully realised. Best of luck Paul in your ...
No mention of Ali Mau? I would hope Mediaworks are - at the very least - retaining her as a fill-in presenter for any of the key roles?
Sounds great; I'm looking forward to the new channel. Congratulations to Three for their much deserved success in the ratings.
Predictable, safe and vanilla. Will be forgotten pretty quickly I suspect.

Who's it for: Super Rugby by Sugar & Partners
Why we like it: Super Rugby is typically a fast-paced game, but to promote the season Sugar & Partners have slowed down the action to ensure audiences don't miss a thing. Despite the change of pace, the excited fans jumping around, motocross rider and confetti ensure the campaign continues to build on the hype generated in previous campaigns. The music by local artist Kings also helps to provide energy—did you spot him in the crowd?
Who's it for:The New Zealand Olympic Committee by Saatchi & Saatchi
Why we like it: Competing on a global stage is no easy feat, and that's before cold temperatures, wind and snow are added. This campaign takes New Zealanders behind the scenes of the Winter Olympics to see what it takes get there and hopefully win a medal. In this particular video, featuring Janina Kuzma, the choice to not add music and leave the wind as the only sound emphasises the harsh conditions she trains in and her dedication to the sport.
Who's it for: Kiwibank by Hello
Why we like it: Kiwibank is bidding farewell to student giveaways and acknowledging the demographic is not only motivated by freebies. Instead, this campaign, featuring Shortland Street's Jayden Daniels, ties into the brand's wider campaigns about investing in a locally owned bank. And if that message alone isn't enough to make students sit up and listen, the inclusion of Daniels taking his shirt off is sure to generate some attention.
