Overview of the role
This role is focused on listening to our clients, understanding the most efficient way to a great solution for their brief, and making sure you and the team around you deliver, consistently, every day.

To add to this. How can a company in the broadcast and digital sectors that's casually bringing in $928m annually, have one of the worst digital experiences out there? It's like Fred Flintstone and his mates are running the show.
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.

I cannot but agree with you. It's a BIG shame to see that the misinterpretation and misunderstanding of what a solid integrated PR campaign stands for and can deliver still sits in decision-makers & budget-rulers minds. That in the end ...

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.
