By

As well as its focus on the dangers of drugs and booze, NZTA and Clemenger BBDO have also been pushing the dangers of distractions, and while most of the attention has so far been focused on phone use, its Party Crashes campaign aims to show how passengers can be also be the cause of accidents.

It’s a wrap: New Zealand stricken with severe case of Hobbit fever
By

Amid the controversy that seems to have attached itself to the release of the first Hobbit film, Wellingtonians in particular will be hard-pressed to forget the premiere is taking place in their city, not least thanks to the two-storey Middle Earth wrap that’s been attached to the side of Clemenger BBDO’s Wellington office. That’s one more Hobbit-themed gesture to add to a growing list that also includes DraftFCB’s baggage carousel at Wellington airport, Air New Zealand’s Hobbit aircraft and, of course, Tourism New Zealand’s 100% Middle-earth.

Ghost Chips come back to haunt AXIS judges once again as the people’s favourite takes TVC of the Year title
By

NZTA, Clemenger BBDO and The Sweet Shop’s Legend campaign became something of a pop cultural phenomenon when it was released last year, with a couple of lines quickly becoming part of the Kiwi vernacular, t-shirts bearing images of Ghost Chips being worn around the country, and hundreds of parodies, spoof ads and TradeMe auctions referencing the original. And while all those involved in its creation are still smarting a little after the most talked about ad of 2011 went home without any gold at the AXIS awards, it appears there is some justice in the world, because it quite rightly received 11 percent of the vote to win the StopPress/ThinkTV TVC of the Year.

Alkema’s creative alchemy lands her plum Wellington role
By

After a bit of a wait, Clemenger BBDO managed to find a replacement managing director when Andrew Holt shifted south from Colenso in late 2010. And it’s also been on the hunt for a new creative director ever since Paul Nagy left in mid 2010. Good things take time, of course, and it’s now filled the position after executive creative director Philip Andrew, who has overseen some pretty bloody good work since taking responsibility for the empty chairs, announced the internal promotion of Brigid Alkema.
