Toby Talbot_thumb.jpgLast year, Toby Talbot (left) returned to Saatchi & Saatchi New Zealand as chief creative officer. He spoke to Campaign Brief about indie agencies with zany one-word names, the Publicis awards ban, why he keeps coming back to work in New Zealand, his upcoming gig at Ad Stars, things he's not-so-good at, and lots more besides.
CB: It's been one year since you took the role as Chief Creative Officer at Saatchi & Saatchi New Zealand. How's it going?
TT: It's been fantastic. It's been 10 years since I last worked at Saatchi and I'd forgotten the potency of the name. It's like you look up the word 'advertising' in the dictionary and find us. I also walked into an incredible culture that has been nurtured by my partner in the business here, Paul Wilson, since he took over. No hierarchies. No politics. No egos. Just a burning desire to do the best work we can and a strong sense of purpose shared with our clients. I also have a boss in Mike Rebelo who, as well as being Saatchi born and bred, runs Publicis in the region. So I feel much more connected to the potential of our network than I ever felt in previous networks I have belonged to.
CB: Now that you've settled back in, what are your goals for 2018?
TT: My focus for 2018 is about creating world-changing ideas. We've had a year away from awards - which I think on the whole has been applauded by the industry because it's forced huge money-making machines like Cannes to take stock of how out of control it's all become. And personally, I've enjoyed it as it's allowed me to focus on people and product. It will be great to get back into awards but, for me, the shiny baubles come easily after you've got everything else right. I'm still way more focussed on the Strand, Parnell than the Croisette, Cannes.

The worst laugh is at the back of the room

unknown.jpgA blog by Damon Stapleton, chief creative officer of DDB New Zealand
"An egg is funny, an orange is not." - Fred Allen

One of the most painful things you can ever see is a comic bombing. It is like watching somebody else being kicked in the balls but somehow you feel the pain. This was happening to me about a week ago.

It was late at the comedy club. There is a beautiful, opaque, intoxicating sadness about a comedy club. Comics loudly telling stories about past glories. Human beings trying to withstand it all by making other human beings laugh. A boulevard of broken dreams that occasionally glitters so brightly, you are willing to keep walking as the rain falls.
GorillaDoctorsPackShot.jpgSince the inception of Creative LIAisons in 2012, LIA has been at the forefront of nurturing the next generation of creative talent. This year, in partnership with Gorilla Doctors, LIA has taken another positive step forward by initiating a global competition that is open to all creatives between the ages of 21 - 30 years.

Says Barbara Levy, president of LIA: "Our focus has always been to invest in young talent. That's why we started Creative LIAisons, our way of giving back to the industry. When we learned of the plight of the mountain gorillas through our association with Gorilla Doctors, we felt that this was the perfect platform to galvanize young talent from all over the world to help save these gorillas through a competition to find the best idea."
Screen Shot 2018-04-20 at 8.39.58 am.jpgWARC, the global marketing intelligence service, has today released 'Lessons from the world's top effectiveness campaigns' to uncover shared creative, media and measurement strategies.

The report analyses the results of the latest WARC 100, an annual ranking of campaigns based on their performance in effectiveness awards from around the world.

The four lessons from the 2018 WARC 100 analysis are:

1. Effective campaigns increasingly have PR 'baked in'
Analysis of campaigns in this year's WARC 100 reveal the increasing use of PR in their channel strategies. This reflects the rise of creative ideas built to gain press coverage and other earned media. Several ideas at the top of the ranking centre around a highly PR-able stunt or concept, like the Transport Accident Association's 'Graham', that can generate content across channels and media.
mark-read-WPP.jpgWunderman CEO Mark Read (pictured), who has become one of WPP's two global leaders in the wake of Sir Martin Sorrell's resignation over the weekend, has emailed each of its approximately 200,000 employees around the world. In the memo Read expresses confidence in the future of WPP and assures all that there is no intention of breaking up the Group

To everyone at WPP

Over the last four days I've spent as much time as possible speaking to our people and clients. There's universal admiration for Martin's achievements, and sadness about his departure. At the same time, there's a huge amount of support and goodwill for the company, and no shortage of confidence about the future.

That confidence is well founded. The companies and client teams that make up WPP are exceptionally good at what they do. They are major organisations in their own right, with their own strong leaders. The clients I've spoken to have all been clear: they value their partner agencies and teams, they expect them to continue to deliver, and they have no doubt that they will.
Screen Shot 2018-04-19 at 12.45.53 pm.jpgSKY TV has today released a 90 second 'mini-drama' spot that will captivate viewers, developed by DDB New Zealand.
With SKY's drama content garnering more international acclaim than any other provider in New Zealand, the new spot 'Poisoned Chalice' showcases SKY as the Home of Premium Drama. The world-class shows in SKY's premium drama line-up collectively picked up 55 Emmys at last year's 68th Primetime Emmy Awards.
Featuring talented character actors, Hacksaw Ridge's Tyler Coppin and Top of the Lakes' Alison Bruce, the film is the first piece of brand work to roll onto New Zealand screens for 2018. Directed by Academy Award nomininee, Derin Seale, the 90 second spot gives the audience a gripping taste of what they can expect from SKY's Premium Drama offering.

Bobux.jpgLooking to accelerate its international growth in 2018, Bobux is launching its new season with a global campaign created with agency partner Running with Scissors.

The campaign takes viewers on three adventures, experienced through the imagination of young kids.

Air NZ continues reign as Australia's #1 company

Air New Zealand Australia.jpgFor the second consecutive year, proudly Kiwi airline Air New Zealand has been recognised as Australia's most reputable company in the Reputation Institute's annual Australia Corporate Reputation Index.
In ranking first, Air New Zealand has trumped homegrown carriers Qantas and Virgin Australia which indexed third and fourth respectively, as well as other major corporates such as Toyota, Apple and Nestle.
Suits NZ (1).jpgFrom the bright lights of New York City to a dull office in suburban New Zealand, Lightbox has debuted its own version of the TV phenomenon that is Suits. To celebrate the much-anticipated arrival of the second half of Season 7, Lightbox teamed up with Spark PR & Activate to add a Kiwi twist to the popular U.S. hit show in its own content series, Suits NZ.

Deliberately mundane, predictable and unexciting, Suits NZ is everything that the American hit TV show is not - and its tongue-in-cheek humour has Kiwi audiences tuning in for more.

To launch the second half of season 7, Lightbox and Spark PR & Activate created three 30-second videos depicting what Suits would look like if it was filmed in a tiny Barrister and Solicitors office above a suburban shop in New Zealand. The answer is simply 'pretty dull'. While Harvey Spector, Mike Ross and Rachel Zane of Suits work on the big cases while being surrounded by beautiful people and flashy offices, the Kiwi version's lawyer works in a cubby-hole office, lodging permits for subdivisions and notarising passports.

Emily Beautrais_Headshot (1).jpgEach week Bestads picks the very best advertising in the world, in every medium - which is reviewed by a top creative director or team to select their own personal favourites.

This week's guest judge is Emily Beautrais, creative director at Clemenger BBDO, Wellington.

Nothing stood out this week here. Either the ideas were good and the craft was lacking, or the other way around.

Winner: The Chaeli Campaign. This definitely left me interested. I sure wouldn't place a bet on this woman not being able to do something, but it got the point across in way that grabbed you, in what is a well-worn and probably very challenging category. Much more powerful than straight up asking for support. READ ON...
Young Guns 16_385x385.jpgThe One Club for Creativity, the world's foremost non-profit organization recognizing creative excellence in advertising and design, has opened the call for entries for Young Guns 16, celebrating international creative professionals age 30 or younger.

Screen Shot 2018-04-18 at 7.18.55 am.jpgIn a move that reflects both the continued momentum and direction of the agency, Carat New Zealand has welcomed two senior strategic hires to the business - Chrissy Rajala (right) and Silvia Kusic (left).

A digital and integrated media specialist, Rajala has a wealth of international experience amassed in the US at L'Oréal, the National Hockey League and, most recently, Mindshare.
IMG_0518-edit (1).jpgTBWA\Auckland has today announced its appointment as strategic brand partner for industry-leading travel technology business Serko, to launch the new Zeno product globally.

Zeno is an integrated all-in-one travel and expense platform for businesses to manage all elements of a journey from pre-trip to reconciliation. Intelligent journey planning and best fare access to airlines, hotels, transfers and car rental in a single interface provides the most cost-effective travel experience.

TBWA\Auckland will market-ready the Zeno brand for launch globally throughout the year.

TBWA\Group managing director Catherine Harris said the agency is proud to be working with a Kiwi company making waves around the world.

Director Luke Shanahan joins Thick as Thieves

Director (SHANAHAN) - RABBIT.jpgRenowned and awarded director Luke Shanahan has signed with Thick as Thieves for NZ representation. Acclaimed for his work on character-driven pieces like the award-winning Holden 'Twitch' and the playful Wrigley's 'Say Hello To Fresh' Luke's work has won metal for direction at LIA, AWARD and Axis.

Following on from a background creating internationally recognized and awarded short films and music clips, Shanahan now brings another dimension to his work with his striking debut feature 'Rabbit' Starring Adelaide Clemens (The Great Gatsby, Rectify).

Set for theatrical release mid-year after sweeping the festival circuit, Rabbit is a psychological thriller about a young woman searching for her twin sister.

Screen Daily called it 'Stylistically meticulous' while FILMINK described it as, "A great new Australian thriller: well-paced, smartly plotted, and brilliantly unsettling."

trucklow-thumb-400x269-244438.jpgNew York Festivals International Advertising Awards announced this year's finalists from entries submitted from 51 countries for the following competitions: Activation & Engagement, Audio, Avant-Garde/Innovative, Branded Entertainment, Creative Marketing Effectiveness, Design, Digital, Direct & Collateral, Film, Film Craft, Integrated, Media, Mobile, Outdoor, Package & Product Design, Print, Public & Media Relations, Public Service Announcements, Sports, and Student.

Cannes Lions announces festival schedule

03-logo-awards-CannesLions-Retina.jpgThe Cannes Lions International Festival of Creativity (18-22 June) has today released details of the 2018 Festival schedule.

Built around the new Tracks system which unites the learning programme and awards structure, the 2018 Festival schedule will equip audiences with the knowledge and foresight they need in a constantly evolving communication industry.
Sadoun-Publicis.jpgAs promised back in June last year, Arthur Sadoun, Chairman & CEO of Publicis Groupe, has invited the press to attend the unboxing of the platform Marcel ~ named after the founder of Publicis, Marcel Bleustein-Blanchet ~ on Thursday, May 24, 2018 at the Groupe's leadership seminar in Paris.
Marcel, Publicis Groupe's disruptive platform, promises to radically transform the way the Groupe's teams and their clients connect, interact and collaborate.

Sadoun (pictured) surprised the marketing world and the vast majority of his own employees last June during the Cannes Festival of Creativity by dropping the news that Publicis would be skipping all industry awards shows for a year in order to develop Marcel and achieve related "cost synergies." 
Disrupting the traditional industry awards model, The Immortal Awards provides LBB members with a global award that is free to enter, easy to enter and hard to win.

Inspired by Sir John Hegarty's belief that creative companies rarely create more than five genuinely award-worthy pieces per office a year, The Immortal Awards only allows entrants a maximum of five entries.

The limit ensures only the very best creative work is entered and creates a democratic, level playing field for all entrants. It's not about playing the numbers game, it's simply about recognising the creative ideas - and the creative talent behind them - that will live forever.

LBB made the decision that entry should come at no additional cost to its members because they understand the importance of awards in furthering the careers of creatives but recognise just how tough the industry is now, particularly financially. As long as your company or office is a member of Little Black Book, you'll be able to enter the award show free of charge.
Thumbnail image for Sir-Martin-Sorrell.jpg
FIRST ON CB: In a move that will surely cause shockwaves throughout the global ad industry, Sir Martin Sorrell has stepped down as Chief Executive Officer of WPP, with immediate effect. 

Roberto Quarta, Chairman of WPP, becomes Executive Chairman until the appointment of a new Chief Executive Officer.
Mark Read, Chief Executive Officer of Wunderman and WPP Digital, and Andrew Scott, WPP Corporate Development Director and Chief Operating Officer, Europe, have been appointed as joint Chief Operating Officers of WPP.
Sir Martin will be available to assist with the transition.
The previously announced investigation into an allegation of misconduct against Sir Martin has concluded. The allegation did not involve amounts that are material.
Video_02_SELECTS.00_26_05_18.Still007 (1).jpgG.J. Gardner has launched its new brand campaign 'We're locals like you'.

Gardner in communities across the country.

This weekend sees the ad's shot in Hamilton and Christchurch going to air with the Queenstown and Southland commercials having aired at the end of March, with ads from Tauranga and Manawatu still to come.


Kiku Ohe joins Rabbit's roster of directors

Kiku_Bio-Pic_3.jpgAward winning commercials director Kiku Ohe has joined Rabbit's roster of directors.

Ohe's work is internationally known for his sophisticated aesthetic choices and his unique way of seeing the world. Cinematically, Ohe often explores the line between the everyday and surreal and has a unique ability to subtly reveal a deeper, almost sub-conscious thread within the narratives he crafts. However, always at the heart of his work is an authenticity and a genuine human connection with whatever subject matter he is working with.

Screen Shot 2018-04-10 at 1.12.53 pm.jpgRebel Sport wants to inspire New Zealanders to make the most of each and every day. To push through the daily grind and always make time for sport. But how do you motivate time-poor Kiwis, to side-step the couch and go outside to play?

Ogilvy and Revolver teamed up to do it with an epic 90 second film 'Rugby Fighter', featuring the remarkable New Zealander, Rebecca Wood.

Richard-Thompson-Alex-Radford.jpgThe Interactive Advertising Bureau of New Zealand (IABNZ) and digital consultancy firm Future State have today announced the launch of a partnership to create a service for Kiwi businesses to fully understand their digital maturity.

The new Digital Maturity index (DMi) has been developed to help businesses understand how they stack up in the digital space, and where they need to focus to stay relevant to their customers and staff.

The obsession with original ideas in advertising

OIA.jpgA blog written by Pat Langton, creative director of Magnum Opus Partners, Melbourne

Deep in the last Millennium when I started out as a junior creative, the idea of an 'original idea' was drilled into me from day dot. I remember coming up with ideas and thinking, "No, ditch that, that's been done before!"

Now, the concept of holding out every time for an original idea is simply, bloody stupid. Yet we as an industry are obsessed with 'original ideas'. Just look at the comments of our industry news and you'll see endless dismissive remarks like 'done before', 'not original' and so on.
dzthumb.jpgEach week Bestads picks the very best advertising in the world, in every medium - which is reviewed by a top creative director or team to select their own personal favourites.

This week's guest judge is Per Pedersen, global creative chairman at Grey, based in New York.

Winner: Sparkasse Credit: The-Not-Sure-Song. Full on pop culture from a German bank. That's different. If all banks did this kind of advertising, people would hate banks less. I love the insight. Crazy about the ambition to go all in with music video production. I'm sure this is the bomb back in Germany. READ ON...
New Stars_poster.jpgAd Stars is recruiting top junior creatives to compete in the 2018 New Stars competition, which is open to anyone with less than three years' industry experience, or who is aged under 30.

On top of having their work celebrated on a global stage, the team that wins Gold will win complimentary tickets to Ad Stars 2019.

Damon Stapleton: Be somewhere

Screen Shot 2018-04-09 at 11.04.11 am.jpgA blog written by Damon Stapleton, chief creative officer of DDB New Zealand

I want you to imagine I am telling you the story of Goldilocks and the three bears. In your head, run it through. Picture all the details, the twists and turns and the big ending.

Right, now take the same story and tell it in half the time. Now halve the time again. And again. Eventually, your story would be something like Girl, bear and porridge. This process happens in advertising a lot these days. You only have to look at the vast majority of advertising to see this. There is a reduction of elements which is why so much online advertising looks like 1950's print ads. A visual, a headline, a payoff line.

LIA announces jury presidents for 2018

LIAPresidents2018.jpgLeading up to the 2018 LIA awards judging session in Las Vegas, LIA announces its list of Jury Presidents for nine of the juries.

Says Barbara Levy, president of LIA: "Our jury presidents are chosen for their expertise, skill, fairness and because they've been the force behind award-winning work throughout their careers. So we are pleased to have Corinna Falusi, (bottom right) a much celebrated creative, as our Digital jury president. While she is the first female Digital jury president, we also know she brings with her a wealth of experience that will surely see only the best work surface to the top so that we can inspire everyone, both the advertising fraternity and clients.
josh-moore-copy.jpgY&R New Zealand has today announced that Josh Moore has resigned and will leave the agency to pursue a new opportunity. 

Moore joined Y&R New Zealand in 2011 as ECD and soon assumed the dual roles of CEO & CCO. In 2016 his CCO duties were expanded to include Y&R Australia. Under his leadership the NZ agency moved into new offices in City Works Depot and won a host of new business and creative awards, including agency of the year titles at D&AD, AWARD and Campaign Brief.
image001 (1).jpgFCB New Zealand and Keep New Zealand Beautiful (KNZB) have launched an anti-litter campaign, fronted by a new kind of Mother Nature - a no-nonsense Kiwi character known as 'Mama Nature'.

'Mama Nature' was developed to get Kiwis to wake their ideas up about littering and start lifting their game. She's still all about loving the planet and keeping New Zealand "Be- yooo-diful" but years of cleaning up after everyone has seen an end to her unconditional love. Unleashing the odd dose of natural-disaster onto litterers? Yeah, 'Mama Nature' can do that.
