Year in Review: Jenny Stiles

The newspaper industry has certainly had better years than 2012, with a continuing shift away from paper by readers and advertisers, big losses and restructures for the major players in this market and the spectre of the Leveson Enquiry hanging over print journalism. But there was still plenty to celebrate. News Work's new business and marketing manager Jenny Stiles sounds off. 

1) Favourite campaign that isn’t yours

Export Dry. Clever, clever writing

2) Favourite campaign that is yours 

150 years of trust and heritage (in many cases) counts for a lot. 

3) Least favourite campaign

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Yu0IY2H9iuYANZ. Formulaic Aussie advertising. It could have done so much more with this opportunity (and we miss the horse). 

4) Best brand

Pak 'n Save. A great example of smart, simple retail print. 

5) Best stoush

Banks. Great for newspapers. 

6) Heroes

New Zealand Herald. Brave to go out with a major change in a bumbling economy. 

7) Villains

British American Tobacco NZ. Clever enough to get around the law. 

8) Most memorable marketing moment

The team at News Works learned that magnetic signs don’t stick to the sides of bogged up Mr.Whippy vans.  

9) A few predictions for 2013

Back to brand building but it will be done in clever, cost effective ways.

More integration across platforms and media.
