Who we are:
Hi there. You might have seen us around. We’re Young+Shand. Auckland-based digital ad agency and NZ’s largest indie. We’re a unique mix of creatives, technologists, suits and digital media wizards, which means we get the digital space in a way most agencies only pretend to. Our creative dept is made up of 25 supremely talented people including copywriters, art directors, digi designers, and front and back end devs. On top of that we also have a fulltime director of photography and a motion graphics animator, all led by a highly experienced and internationally awarded CD. Making awesome ideas happen is what we do. What we need is a super talented creative team to jump onboard and add their awesomeness to ours.
Who you are:
PS. There’s free lunch on Fridays and a chiller full of beer for your pleasure… not that that would influence your decision or anything.
In that case employment contracts which make work (ideas) created and presented while employed at an agency the property of that agency or its client mustn't be worth the blood they're written in.
This idea would only be better if instead of turning bottles into sand, they could use their technological prowess to turn American presidents into orange crayons.
Not if you factor in the head hours and production time on entries...maybe a few hundred thousand more at a pinch?
The point is not making the sand, it's making the news: having something interesting to share with consumers. So this is good. Maybe very.
I just went for lunch downtown and there are currently three machines opposite the ferry building - pretty cool and not loud as someone asked before. I must see pretty cool to see it get crushed like that right before ...
Even though this is not an original idea - see the Intermarche 'Inglorious Fruits and Vegetables - it is still one that enormously worthwhile putting into play. Too often people/brands worry about being first, rather than doing what is right.
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: Rebel Sport by Ogilvy
Why we like it: The 'What's Your Why' campaign has delivered a number of feels and inspirational stories so far and World Champion swimmer Sophie Pascoe's is no different. Learning of her accident as a child and how she proceeded to channel all her energy into swimming, we gain an understanding of the woman who many of us have watched on the screen and we have no doubt the last lines "today, your dad doesn't see his broken little girl. Today, he sees a world champion," will see tears well in the eyes of many dads around the country.
Who's it for: New Zealand Council of Trade Unions by Double Denim
Why we like it: Beginning with a trip down memory lane to show how far New Zealand has come, all feeling of achievement come to a halt when we're reminded the Equal Pay Act of 1972 is yet to come to fruition. It's a good way to provoke thought while the following musical spectacle shows women coming together to take a stand. Time will tell if it's enough to get all New Zealanders to pay attention to the 'pay the sisters the same as the misters' message.
Who's it for: Niue Tourism by Run
Why we like it: At one point in the video, the female voiceover says "the world looks the other way and everything stands still," and that's how this ad makes you feel. The slow moving drone and bold colours of water and forest draw attention, while slowly revealing the woman—we assume to be the voiceover—sitting on the beach. It's a scene that certainly makes air conditioned office air taste pretty average.
