The Atlantic of New Zealand? Bauer brings its current affairs titles together in new online hub, aims for quality over quantity

Bauer, a company long accused of clinging to its print legacy, has gone a long way to shaking off that tag over the past few years with the launch of its digital hubs strategy. And it has been in serious launch mode over the over the last few months with the release of new brands Nadia and Paperboy. Now the publisher has rounded out is offer and unveiled a new online current affairs content site, dubbed Noted, that features content from its Listener, North & South, Metro and Paperboy brands (as well as a couple of other external partners). And journalists (and readers) lamenting the ongoing quest for the low hanging fruit are sure to like what it stands for.

NZ Marketing goes on Assignment

The table. Pretty much every office has one. And they're generally not the most exciting of objects. But the table that sits in the offices of Assignment Group—and the table that features on the front cover of the November/December issue of NZ Marketing—is surprisingly interesting and has become a rather fitting symbol of how the agency began and how it still likes to work.
