Yello teams up with Designworks

In a move that creates the largest design group in all Australasia, Designworks has expanded its Australian presence by welcoming branding business Yello Sydney into the group.

Yello has now rebranded to Designworks. This expansion continues the firm's regional growth strategy and expands its spatial and interactive offering across Australasia, says Designworks director Sven Baker.

"The addition of Yello to the Designworks family adds considerable weight to our position as the pre-eminent strategic design consultancy in this part of the world and brings the size of the team to well over 100 strong," Baker says.

"The move strengthens the our Trans-Tasman Consumer FMCG and Corporate Branding offering and the additional capacity will  support our expansion in Asia this year."

"We have been working with the brilliant team at Yello for a while now and fomalising our partnership was the logical next step," Baker says, adding that fusing the two businesses will provide a stronger, unified group under the Designworks brand for serving Trans-Tasman and Asian clients.

Follow the money, part four: Where New Zealand's news media is finding pots of funding gold

Follow the money. It’s an axiom that journalists have believed in for years and a guiding light when it comes to holding the powerful to account. But that phrase is increasingly pertinent to those who run media businesses. As advertising money flows away from traditional channels towards large tech firms, the old business model of selling space around the news is creaking. And that has led to a range of experiments from publishers and broadcasters hoping to keep the lights on – and to keep shining those lights into dark places. Erin McKenzie dives into the local news media feed and finds plenty of experiments, but no simple answer to the funding conundrum.
