House of Travel has teamed up with ColensoBBDO, Exit Films and Zenith Optimedia, to remind Kiwis about the importance of getting the best holiday experience for the best value. ‘The best holidays are created together’ reflects the way its consultants collaborate with customers to create moments that people will remember forever.
Three of the local campaigns many hoped would appeal to the Cannes judges didn’t get the golds they were hoping for, but they did come away with bronze overnight, with DDB taking two bronzes for Sky’s #Bringdowntheking and Paw Justice’s Animal Strike and Colenso BBDO getting one for Samsung’s Smartphone Line.
In 2013, the students enrolled at Media Design School and AUT Adschool caught the attention of several leading agencies with work that was not only creative but also commercially viable. So impressed were the bigwigs in attendance at the end-of-year shows that they swooped in and hired several of the young bloods shortly after the event.
As the bean counters might say, if advertising doesn’t improve the bottom line, it’s really just art. And expensive art at that. And the agencies that improved their clients’ businesses the most this year have been announced, with perennial Effie performers Colenso BBDO and DraftFCB on top with 22 and 16 finalists respectively, followed by the bolter Barnes, Catmur & Friends on ten and DDB on nine.
