You might have seen us around. We’re Young+Shand: next-level digital agency and the biggest indie in NZ. In seven short years we’ve grown from just two guys and a dream to an agency of 50+ people working on some of the most exciting brands and interesting digital projects you’ll find anywhere.
2017 has been a massive year for us; we’ve welcome a few new and awesome clients to the Y+S family. And that means we now need a shiny new Account Manager to bring their A-game to our A-team.
What sort of suit would suit? Are you a forward-thinking-relationship-managing-organisational-team-playing-enthusiastic-can-doer with a keen interest in all things digital? If that sounds like you, then read on.
a bit lack luster on the art direction
Hmmm yet another white middle class paternalistic 'interpretation' of what they think will move hearts & minds and therefor that 'tick' for a political party for Māori youth. Prominent campaigns do not necessarily mean they are successful. Just bigger budgets ...
Different James here, but to chime in, and not taking sides, if your programmatic execution is filled with corruption, wastage and is not measured (independently) - then you're doing it wrong. Paul raises valid points and there is a lot ...
The butterfly effect. An old chestnut, re-roasted.
Written by 3 women, directed by a woman. Don't lose your biscuit Stoppress.

Who's it for: New Zealand Jerky by North
Why we like it: For those negatively inclined to bad puns, avert your eyes and ears now because New Zealand Jerky and comedian Tim Batt are here to serve up the goods. With jokes so bad they're actually good, Batt is forced to work a tough crowd as his zingers fall 'udderly' flat.
Who's it for:Anchor by Colenso BBDO
Why we like it: Work, kids, health and fitness—modern life can be far from a breeze, with many of us busily racing from one task to another. But in Anchor's latest spot, it shows us that when it comes to our daily protein needs, it's got us well and truly covered. Featuring young entrepreneurs, football mums and amateur marathon runners, Anchor does a good job showing we all need a bit of extra strength in our lives however we decide to use it.
Who's it for: Tower by Barnes, Catmur & Friends Dentsu
Why we like it: Who doesn't love watching reverse slow-motion? Especially when it's a disaster miraculously extinguishing before our eyes. Fittingly set to the cheery tune of Kiwi musician Graeme James' 'One + One', the line "I feel this could be different if I was with you" helps Tower's simple message sing loud and clear.
Who's it for: Air New Zealand by Host Sydney
Why we like it: If you're suffering from environmental adjustment disorder (aka homesickness), Shortland Street's favourite doctor has just the cure for you. Supposedly affecting "100 percent of New Zealanders who don't live in New Zealand", Dr TK Samuels very convincingly lets us know that the cure to homesickness is just a flight or two away. And according to Dr Samuel's charming quote behind his desk, you'll be feeling "wine in no time".
Who's it for:Wendy's by Augusto
Why we like it: With its salty, greasy goodness, bacon's lure is just too much for some as Wendy's sends its most ardent addicts to BAA (Bacon Addicts Anonymous). With attendees having no idea they were going into a therapy session (they were promised a taste-test instead), the element of surprise adds extra humour to the absurd gathering.
