Viva gives the old New Zealand Herald office a stylish send-off

There was nothing particularly fashionable about the New Zealand Herald’s old office in Albert St—until now. The faux marble bathrooms, cubicle desks and grim Eastern Bloc-style surrounds made the perfect backdrop for a Viva shoot featuring some of the latest New Zealand fashions.

The foreign connection: does it matter that over a quarter of Stuff and Herald online readers are located abroad?—UPDATED

Research from Nielsen shows that approximately 25 percent of unique online visitors to the Stuff website and 29 percent to the NZ Herald in the month of October came from readers located outside New Zealand. So are advertisers aware of the high proportion of international visitors and are they taking it into account when purchasing ads on these news sites? Also, how are publishers monetising their international audiences?

"Data journalism is absolutely critical to our future," said NZME managing editor Shayne Currie when speaking to StopPress about the restructure of NZME's news teams. As part of the shift to a more digital-centric publishing operation, Currie said NZME would be investing more into data journalism in the near future. And this seems to have now come to fruition with the launch of Insights, a website dedicated to the Herald's data journalism.

Eating media lunch? How Kiwi companies have responded to Facebook's Instant Articles

Facebook has become a hugely important traffic source for many publishers. And last week Facebook announced the launch of a new feature called Instant Articles, which allows users to view articles from other websites (particularly enhancing mobile experience) without leaving the site. This is hoped to make for a faster loading time, more data about what users like to consume and therefore an enhanced overall user experience. And there are also benefits for the publishers. It's very early days for the scheme, but we thought we’d find out a bit about the initiative and whether New Zealand’s main media outfits are keen on the idea.

Stuff invites Kiwis to create art in the dark

Fairfax is starting to challenge the Herald's dominance in Auckland with a series of campaigns that aim to draw the Super City's denizens to its publication. The most recent effort involved an activation at Art in the Dark, which saw event attendees queue in long lines to enter the Stuff tent to get a shot at literally creating art out of light. Once inside the tent, Kiwis would be given LED glowsticks and were then told to draw or write in the air. These actions were then captured using long-exposure photography, resulting in a host of creative images that were tagged with the Stuff brand.
