PHD picks up Sealord account

PHD New Zealand has been appointed as the media agency for the Sealord account.

Louise Bond, chief executive of PHD New Zealand, says winning the Sealord business is a testament to PHD’s strong strategic thinking and its integrated data and technology services. 

“We’re looking forward to working with Sealord to roll out innovative and progressive market-leading media campaigns that deliver results and help Sealord achieve success.”

Starcom New Zealand was the incumbent media agency, while Ogilvy remains as the creative agency. 

General manager New Zealand at Sealord Stu Yorston says the partnership between PHD and Sealord reflects its focus on how the company leverages media to support its goal of helping to lift the nation’s health through good nutrition.

This goal was first seen in June last year through a campaign called 'Be Like a Fish'. Its hero TVC follows a father and daughter as they learn to swim in an effort to demonstrate the empowerment and self-confidence one can achieve through a healthy lifestyle.

Sealord’s appointment of PHD was effective from 1 January.

Whittaker's divides the court of public opinion – but all for a good cause

On Monday, Whittaker’s launched its latest novelty chocolate-lolly mash up with a chocolatey answer to retro bakesale treat coconut ice. The Coconut Ice Surprise chocolate has a twist though, 20c from each block goes to Plunket – a charity which New Zealanders agree is a worthy cause. However, to relate the chocolate to the charity, Whittaker's has built the campaign around baby gender reveal parties, causing a backlash from the public who argue gender norms have expanded beyond blue for boys and pink for girls.
