When it comes to making successful branded apps, there are generally two rules: either make it useful or give it some novelty value. And, if possible, combine elements of both. And Heineken and &some have done just that with a new smartphone app that shows locals and visitors where to find official RWC bars, as well as their mates, their rivals, a taxi home and, if they’re lucky, even some tickets to the final.
The soon to be relaunched Idealog magazine has ended its galactic search for a new editor, fixing on a local human whose name many of our dear StopPress readers will already know: NBR’s Hazel Phillips.
There is so much that could be written about last night’s Magazine Publisher’s Association gong-fest, but StopPress has a headache, so instead let’s just say that Healthy Food Guide took out the Supreme Magazine award, NZ House & Garden’s Kate Coughlan took out Supreme Editor of the year and Paula Ryan, resplendent in an impractical yet presumably highly fashionable ensemble, was handed the Lifetime Achievement Award.
Idealog and her ugly sisters NZ Marketing, StopPress and Celsias have given birth (by C-section) to Design Daily, a daily news site for Kiwi architects and designers. Launched today, the site covers projects, people, events and politics in the design industry. And it will also send out a weekly free email newsletter that you can sign up for here.
