We are after someone quite unique.
Are you a Creative Director or Art Director by trade, who is proven in their career and looking for a new challenge? Have you worked in Healthcare or the Government sector?
A boutique Auckland communications agency is now on the hunt for the next Creative lead. Even if you’re a Senior looking to step into a Creative Director role, this one may be worth chasing.
This is a key hire in a small shop where you’ll be given creative freedom and control, so you must be a person who thrives on creating award winning solutions for a list of quite unique clients and brands (and can handle working with only 5-6 others at one time.)

Experience in the Healthcare or Pharmaceutical sector would be an advantage, although not a deal breaker.
You must be a clear and confident communicator, problem solver, have a strong eye for design with a solid understanding of B2B, advertising, digital, data, retail, in-store, customer engagement, promotions and overall campaign execution.

Auto-playing rollovers are not an innovation and they sure don't enhance branding. Please unplug them...
an invention is not necessary an innovation. Additionally innovation can be internal, external - incremental, semi radical or radical. The article basically says NZ "minds" should focus more on incremental innovations related to branding and let the bigger countries to ...
Great article Claudia. The thinking our industries offer for little remuneration or free is astounding. Clients need to be aware the time and effort put into PRES campaigns mirrors those of more 'established' marcoms channels.

Who's it for: Pak'nSave by FCB
Why we like it: With so much sporting action in the past month, brands choosing to campaign around it are working to keep up with the results, and Pak'nSave and its Stickman have demonstrated an impressive effort following Emirates Team New Zealand's America's Cup win. This video recreating the race between Emirates Team New Zealand and Oracle Team USA was shared on the supermarket's YouTube channel earlier today with some topical commentary about changing the rules, our competitor dropping the tin foil—no doubt a reference to a boat's foils—and Grant Dalton wanting to borrow some of Jimmy Spithill's cash.
Who's it for: New Zealand Transport Agency by Clemenger BBDO
Why we like it: Clemenger BBDO and NZTA's relationship has delivered some powerful work and this campaign following Rats is no different. It's said your life flashes before your eyes when you die, but in this case, Rats' life flashes before his eyes as a warning to not get behind the wheel under the influence. Recalling his happy memories serves as a reminder of what he has to lose should something go wrong. The message is just as powerful as ads that showing an accident, moving away from the doom and gloom to highlight all the great things in our lives and to make the decision to not get behind the wheel an appealing one.
Who's it for:Mastercard by McCann Sydney
Why we like it: Rugby fever has swept the nation and Mastercard's getting amongst it by asking New Zealanders to tap for their town. The supporting creative sees the return of Richie McCaw's number one fan and best mate Tim in his usual loud and over-enthusiastic manner. But this time, he's joined by other rugby fans who break out into a game in the supermarket to get products to the checkout so Mastercards can be tapped. The town with the most taps will see McCaw take on its local team.
