Small, very New Zealandy and not very old agency Josh&Jamie is steadily becoming not so small, continuing its solid run of victories after taking Fairfax Media’s online news-site Stuff.co.nz off incumbent Big Communications in a competitive pitch.
“She’s a beaut account to win,” says J&J creative director, Josh Lancaster. “Although it does mean Jamie will be crapping on even more than usual about sport with the extra stories stuff.co.nz has.”
Fellow creative director, Jamie Hitchcock also invited anyone wandering past the agency at around 10am to come in and compete in the terrific daily quiz that can be found on Stuff.co.nz.
Fairfax Group advertising and marketing manager, Sandra King was impressed with the way Josh&Jamie handled the brief.
“J&J demonstrated a comprehensive understanding of the business and delivered some compelling creative,” she says.
And Nigel Tutt, general manager – digital platform and channel development at Fairfax says “it’s a really exciting time for Stuff and we’re looking forward to working with the boys and [group account director]Jo but mostly with Jo.”
