In November last year, Leukaemia and Blood Cancer New Zealand (LBC) got 12 celebrities to silently stare at a camera as part of the ‘silent treatment’ campaign. And now, only three months later, that silence is being broken with the stories of Kiwis who have decided to shave for cure. The integrated campaign, once again developed by .99 and brought to life by Blockhead Visual Effects, aims to spread awareness for the annual ‘Shave Week’ appeal that runs from 17 to 23 March.
This year, the Clemenger Group made a significant addition to its offering by fusing .99 and direct/CRM/1-to-1 agency justONE. And with Ben Goodale taking the reins as managing director of a team of over 100 people, the move seems to have worked well thus far. In addition to shrinking New World’s merchandise and putting smiles on Kiwi faces everywhere, the collaboration also led the field in terms of nominations at the NZDM Awards. It thus comes as no surprise that Goodale was optimistic when it came to sharing his thoughts on a year fraught with change.
The finalists of the NZDM Awards have been announced, with Colenso BBDO/Proximity and justONE/.99 leading the field on 13 each and Loyalty NZ next on ten.
As the Bacchanalian throng moshed to adland’s gods and goddess of rock at last week’s Battle of the Ad Bands, .99/justONE took the opportunity to shoulder tap—literally—some of those in attendance.
.99 has continued its golden run of new business, winning the local L’Oréal business after a competitive pitch.
Mergers and acquisitions have been fairly rare throughout These Difficult Times, but the Clemenger Group has made a significant addition to its communications coterie and is hoping to create a formidable advertising force by fusing .99 and direct/CRM/1-to-1 agency justONE.
Agencies celebrate financial stability and single-minded focus at this year’s Fairfax AdMedia Agency of the Year Awards. Colenso BBDO, Barnes Catmur & Friends, and justONE come out on top – although DraftFCB CEO in the mix.
Following on from Subway and justONE’s Grand Prix win at the NZDM Awards on Friday—the second grand prix the pair has won at the awards—here’s a column by Ben Goodale that featured in the November/December edition of NZ Marketing magazine about how Subway has used mobile technology to enhance both the customer experience and its own marketing.
