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.
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 ...
Isn't the whole point of this article to parody exactly that? I.e. the idea that many in the industry don't know what they're doing, which leads to all the flashy/fishy practices described in the article?
Not wanted in that agency were you? Cheer up.
Awful. Badly written, terribly made, no idea. I have no idea why you would PR this level of work.
Agency Wnk. The cold hard experience of being agencyside provides an understanding that most staffers even C level ad-types have no clue what they're doing.
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: WorkSafe by Assignment Group.
Why we like it: Hilarious but serious, this ad from WorkSafe elicits both laughter and pensive thought as fictional commentators ‘Pat Silverwood’ and ‘Joe Munro’ give a play-by-play of workers actions. And while not all workplaces feature a pair of commentators armed with mics to make themselves heard, it's hoped the enjoyable campaign that will encourage Kiwis to ‘Use Your Mouth’ and speak up in the workplace.
Who’s it for: Icebreaker by Motion Sickness
Why we like it: Motion Sickness has blended storytelling with an ad in this beautifully shot video for Icebreaker. While the connection with Icebreaker isn't obvious from the start, as Riley Elliott's mulls over what makes him so passionate about sharks, we learn a lesson about facing and embracing fear—and it's one that suits the nature of the outdoor adventure brand.
Who’s it for: G.J. Gardner Homes by 99
Why we like it: Personalising a large company like G.J. Gardner Homes can be tough. But the company has done a nice job of giving local workers a face. Going from Queenstown to the Manawatu, franchisees speak about themselves, how they work and how they are involved with, and support, the local community around them. It's a good way to get to know those who are responsible for bringing to life the homes for G.J. customers.
