After years as New Zealand’s most effective independent advertising agency on High Street, we’re now happily settled in with the Dentsu Aegis Network in our newish offices at 109 Cook St (opposite Placemakers).
We’re a separate company with our own shiny entrance, but the DAN connection gives us access to the group’s industry-leading programmatic and digital media services as well as PR, shopper marketing and activation.
A few things have changed. For instance, we have in-house content facilities to create cost-effective retail and consistent comms, and we now boast two beer fridges. But our overall goal remains the same – to bring our strategy, creative, digital and media skills together to produce the most distinctive and therefore effective work we can, all while being nice to hang out with. Give us a call and see how we can help.
