Year in Review: Hazel Phillips, Baldwin Boyle Group

Every year, StopPress asks players in the local industry for their reflections on the marketing year that was. Here's what Hazel Phillips, senior consultant at Baldwin Boyle Group (and former editor of Idealog), thought about 2015.

1. Favourite local campaign that isn't yours

Jelly Tip July – taking something that’s old and making it new again.

2. Favourite campaign that is yours

NZ Home Improvement Report research for Mitre 10 – insights into New Zealand’s DIY culture.

3. Favourite international campaign

Arc’teryx’s #defineFEMININE – masterclass in how to talk gender without condescension, or using ludicrous terms like ‘mumtrepreneur’.

4. Least favourite campaign

#SquattyPotty – will we ever look at soft-serve ice cream in quite the same way again?

5. Your own biggest success

Falling down the crater face of Ruapehu and not dying.

6. Favourite magazine/website/TV show/radio show/podcast/news service/app/song/other – major high-five to Lizzie Marvelly.

7. Most ridiculous buzzword

Anything to do with ‘driving’ stuff: driving engagement, driving performance, driving conversations. Be warned: soon I will be driving my Killdozer towards people who use this word.

8. Best innovation

Eat My Lunch. Tasty and socially responsible. Love!

9. Most over-hyped ‘innovation’

Hipster milk, i.e. milk in fancy pants artisan packaging. It’s. Still. Just. Milk.

10. Best brands

Whittaker’s – can’t wait to see what the next collaboration is.

11. Best stoush of the year

VW versus the planet.

Is consolidation the way of the future?

The tail end of 2018 brought with it some major announcements between media companies and the booming out-of-home market. Nearly two months since NZME and Go Media enacted their partnership and MediaWorks and QMS Media announced their proposed merger, we have a chat with media agencies to see whether the latest developments are a sign of things to come.
