  • The saddest thing   

    The saddest thing about this post, is a reminder of how sh$t this industry is. A brand puts out an RFI to the industry, which you would guess anyone non-conflicted would have responded to? A local agency (yep, owned by ...

    It's not uncommon for Kiwibank to use organisations outside of New Zealand. I understand they were using a South African organisation on their failed SAP project. Seems odd for a purpose driven organisation to not "live their brand".

    It looks good on the surface, and the bosses keep pitching it to clients, but peel back the layers and the day-to-day reality is a wrestle between the teams - who leads the thinking, who's the real ECD, who's opinion ...

    It’s fair to call out a bank that’s NZ government owned and wishes kiwis to bank with it, but who in turn doesn’t bank on kiwis. It’s simply a fair and logical criticism. It’s hugely damaging behaviour across multiple sectors ...

Who's it for: Mercer KiwiSaver by Tenfold

Why we like it: Stan, tell me more about your KiwiSaver habits, please. It really felt like he was going to break into song at some point during this spot, yet sadly, the recording studio and instruments are just a tease. Oh well, hopefully this ad will encourage more people to consider putting money into their KiwiSavers.

Who's it for: Drive Go (NZTA and ACC) by Strategy Creative

Why we like it: If only a quick watch of a 2D birds-eye-view video really could teach you how to parallel park, it would have saved a lot of cold sweats and nervous yelling back in my day. This ad does an excellent job of showing just how much pressure you feel like you're under when attempting to parallel park though. A word from the wise for this kid, the bright lime green car really doesn't help you look inconspicuous, though.
