Bill Oberland AICP.jpg Each 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 Bill Oberlander, co-founder and executive creative director at OBERLAND in New York.

Winner: "IKEA". Admittingly, I'm a sucker for stylish, hyper-lifestyle ads with beautiful supermodels in stunning settings. So when this commercial started I was drawn in with great expectations. Assumingly another over-the-top production for Calvin Klein or Dolce Gabbana, right? When the "record scratch" moment arrives with an everyday Swedish woman walking onto the set to take the piss out of all the pretention---it was disruptive, funny and memorable. She's completely oblivious to all the fabulousness, only calling out the high style of the IKEA cabinets (obviously trying to strategically reposition IKEA beyond their cheap, non-fashionable brand image). The commercial is short, sharp and to the point. I think this spot gives the IKEA brand great, high production values along with a winning, self-deprecating sense of humor. Bravo. READ ON...

plumbing edit (1).jpgGot A Trade! and Ogilvy NZ have created a new way for young people to find their careers - an interactive music video by New Zealand band The Hype Men starring Elroy Finn & Jimmy Metherell, featuring EJB. Elroy Finn is the son of Neil Finn, while EJB is the daughter of Jimmy Barnes.

The campaign, Find Your Fit, aims to attract more young New Zealanders into trades and services, albeit not through a traditional commercial, but a quirky career-advising music video. With only 4% of school leavers entering trade industry training, it's indicative there's a misconception that apprenticeships and traineeships are less prestigious or viable than university.

In an already crowded advertising landscape, GenZ are exposed to thousands of advertising messages every day and content representing a traditional commercial risks being met with glassy-eyed stares. To that end, Find Your Fit has been designed to challenge our perceptions of the trades and services in a fresh new way.

Pat Langton: Hi, I'm Creativity

Creativity (2).jpgA blog written by Pat Langton, creative director/partner of Magnum Opus Partners, Melbourne

The good old Oxford Dictionary defines Creativity as "The use of imagination or original ideas to create something; inventiveness."

Now, by looking at that, anyone with an imagination is creative. Right?

I can't count the amount of times I've heard someone say to me 'But you're creative, you do that easy: I could never do that.'

Honestly, this makes my blood boil. There are so many different ways of being 'creative' and it's not just painting, making music - or in my case working in advertising.

Colenso Digital, driven by experience

Screen Shot 2018-10-11 at 8.16.30 am.jpgThe recent release of five digital properties; Kupu (Spark), Convert-it (BNZ), SelfieSTIX Filters (Pedigree), My Moni (BNZ) and Penny the Penguin (BNZ) marks the end of the long rebuild for the digital offering at Colenso BBDO, and the beginning of some very exciting opportunities for the team.

With the merger of Touchcast Auckland over 18 months ago, the departure of key people to Wellington and ASB and a multitude of digital startups, it was time to rebuild the offering.

Colenso BBDO never has a shortage of challenging problems, great ideas and amazing clients; getting this team on track was a priority for the company's leadership team and crucial to their future success.
PedigreeSelfieSTIX_DigiMobile_App_print3.jpgColenso BBDO, in partnership with Mars and their Pedigree brand, has continued its successful run of form on the international stage, this time at The DMA International ECHO Awards.

Lee-Aldridge-Head-1 (2).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 Lee Aldridge, global creative director, Spark44, London.

Winner: Movember Foundation: 'Man of More Words'. So, what's new? This is a question we should always ask when reviewing work: what's new? For anything to stand out, it has to have something new and fresh about it. This ad for Movember Foundation does just that. It's about a man who doesn't say much. How many ads can you name that are about 'A man who doesn't say much'? Exactly. A thoughtful character study, brilliantly cast. Great storytelling with a rug-pull that I didn't see coming. READ ON...

Screen Shot 2018-10-08 at 1.30.39 pm.jpgLifeline has launched a new fundraising campaign via DDB New Zealand, The 72 Club, which flipped the infamous '27 Club' on its head.

The '27 Club' consists of a group of young musicians whose lives were tragically cut short. From that inspiration, The 72 Club was created to inspire all Kiwis to go on to live to 72 and beyond.

The campaign came about when two DDB New Zealand creatives read a news story highlighting that Lifeline, New Zealand's largest mental health helpline, had lost funding and was struggling to operate. They had the idea to recreate a song made famous by a member of the 27 Club, Janis Joplin's Piece of My Heart, with a group of music legends who have enjoyed a life well lived.

Day #4

The final day has arrived, and while my liver is relieved the rest of me is not ready for it to be over. No time to dwell though, and we get stuck into the first speaker for the day - Lara Logan, a correspondent from 60 minutes. After Lara's talk, I don't think there was a dry eye in the room after hearing her amazing stories and glimpsing her strength and resilience in the face of death. I'm going to call it and say it was one of the best talks we had throughout the whole program. After Lara we had a small break so they could organise the stage for 5 creatives and 2 clients that would judge the Gorilla Doctors competition.
YOUNG LOTUS WORKSHOP 2019.jpgAdFest is has announced that MullenLowe Group will host the 2019 Young Lotus Workshop, a two-and-a-half-day workshop for ambitious young creative teams from the Asia Pacific and Middle East.

The day started off with a painful headache after last nights shindig. But once again after a gigantic Starbucks coffee it was to time to get inspired.

The first speaker to hit the stage was Susan Credle, talking about the 'creative career' and how important a good work life balance is. After a short break we experienced some of the best work coming out of Thailand. It's truly a unique style but they have created something iconic. Sompat Trisadikun went on to explain that their style has grown out of the cultural nature of Thai people. They are a happy bunch and they don't take things too seriously, and it shows in the creative work they produce.

"First you make people believe they have a problem, and then you sell them the solution.That is how advertising works. Every snake oil salesman knows that." - Oliver Markus Malloy

Lately, I have been followed.

The man who is following me has good hair and dead eyes. It would seem wherever I go on the internet he pops up. He is young, very young, but is constantly telling me that he has the wisdom and the secret stuff that can help me. He keeps telling me he is very rich and desperately wants to help people. This is why he will help me become very rich too. He always seems to be at a mansion with a couple of Ferrari's in the background. The snake-oil gospel of success. P.T Barnum without a real circus.

When I was first told that Campaign Brief was sending me to Las Vegas I was a little confused. Then they told me it was for the London International Awards. I was even more confused - the London International Awards is hosted in Nevada America? What? But, after a couple of days here it all makes sense. Actually, nothing here makes sense* but that's ok. LIA is a truly international award show and Vegas is a truly international city. Where else could you find the Coliseum, the Eiffel Tower, the Sphinx, the Venetian Canals and Korean Elvis, all in spewing distance of each other? And where else would you find a program like the LIA Creative LIAisons with over 100 creatives under 30 from around the world... all in spewing distance of each other? What a segue (Actually saw Elvis on a segway the other day, but that's a segue for another day). The Creative LIAisons for those of you not aware of is a program you should be aware of. It's a Five-day one-of-a-kind advertising experience where young-ish creatives listen to incredibly inspiring lectures then get drunk-ish after (all in the name of networking).

There was something ironic about flying on an Alaskan Airlines plane through the sweltering Nevada desert. But there I was, staring out the window at the burnt earth when suddenly, like mirage it rose up out of the sands. Flying into Vegas goes like this.

Sand, sand, sand, sand, sand, sand, sand, Eifel Tower, Statue of Liberty, Pyramid, Pirate Ship, Hooters. It truly is bizarre

3to Vegas and knock off all the big landmarks in one hit. You're welcome.

Just as easy as it was to spot the strip in the middle of the desert, it's just as easy to tell the ad folk apart from the holiday makers. Chinos instead of 3 quarter cargo shorts. Linen shirts instead Hawaiian. Thick black rim glasses instead of Dirty Dog speed dealers. Rothmans instead of watermelon flavoured vape pens and tumblers of Laphroaig in stark contrast of florescent green plastic yard sticks of frozen rum.

Today started like most mornings do after 20+ hours of flying, with half open eyes and a dangerous amount of coffee. Luckily the US is no stranger to super sizing so Starbucks had me sorted. After arriving at the luxe Encore hotel we all received a glimpse at the bill for the day.

We had the pleasure of listening to the likes of:

1. Hero - Ko Tātou This Is Us.jpgClemenger BBDO and Biosecurity 2025 have launched Ko Tātou This Is Us, the first nationwide campaign designed to help New Zealanders understand and care about biosecurity.

Ko Tātou This Is Us is an overarching brand and platform that will combine the efforts of government, community organisations and individuals across New Zealand as we face increasing pest and disease challenges to our biosecurity, exacerbated by increased international shipping, travel and a changing climate. The brand takes guidance from the values of our tangata whenua, and their kaitiakitanga of our unique place.

Says Linda Major, Clemenger BBDO: "So much of what we take for granted as New Zealanders depends entirely on biosecurity - from what we eat to the lifestyles we enjoy. These things make us 'us'. We're simply linking the two together for people, making something fairly intangible very personal, but also irreplaceable and finite."

2000px-Apple_logo_black.svg.jpgInterbrand has announced Apple, Google, and Amazon are the three most valuable brands in its 2018 Best Global Brands report, with luxury and retail as the two dominant sectors.

cc68fed5-2eca-4e67-b684-dca3ba0571bf.jpgWARC, the global authority on advertising and media effectiveness, has today released its Effective Social Strategy Report 2018, outlining key social trends from the world's most effective marketing campaigns.

Drawn from the winners of the Effective Social Strategy category of this year's international WARC Awards, a global case study competition designed to reward next-generation marketing effectiveness, the report identifies drivers that link the role of social strategy to business success.

Says Lucy Aitken (pictured), managing editor, case studies, WARC': "We've been documenting the evolution of social strategy since 2014. During that time, social has changed in the media mix, from an activity designed to generate conversation, participation, sharing or advocacy to a broadcast medium for online video and, in many instances, a support medium for bigger integrated campaigns that also use TV.

"Social is now firmly established in the media mix, though its ability to connect with communities in highly unique and memorable ways continues to make it distinct."

So technically day one hasn't even hit yet, but when you're stepping foot on US soil for the very first time and about to participate in the holy grail of under 30 ad experiences, you can't help getting a little bit keen. Being an art director, words were never going to adequately describe my experience, so behold my photo diary of the LIA experience. This is the story so far, from arriving for the 2018 Creative LIAisons, to betting everything on black (turns out that's not my lucky colour), to strolling down the boulevard to see where it ends only to realise that it doesn't...
Worlds most successful recruitment (1)-thumb-400x183-292340.jpgLeading figures from the worlds of business, advertising, design and philanthropy have tonight gathered at AMC Loews Lincoln Square 13 in New York City to hear the winners of the third annual D&AD Impact Awards.

0.jpgFINCH, a production company in Sydney, has conceived a simple yet effective idea where advertisers can help raise the much-needed funds to help animals and conservation everywhere. But this is not a solo effort. FINCH together with Clemenger BBDO, the United Nations Development Program (UNDP) and founding partner Mars have already launched the initiative where companies participating in this program will make a 0.5 percent of their media spend to Lion's Share each time an animal appears in advertising. With the money raised the UN and Civil Society Organizations can implement efforts to achieve the goals set out by Lion's share.

Says Rob Galluzzo (pictured), founder and executive producer at FINCH: "I am passionate about habitat conservation, and animal welfare. That's why I applaud LIA for the Gorilla Doctors' competition. It is good to see them investing in this competition that will generate the best ideas to benefit animal welfare and the environment in countries like Rwanda. It will be very interesting to see all the great ideas that will surface at the judging of this contest at the end of this week."

Gorilla Doctors' competition will take place on Saturday, October 6th.  Aside from the panel of judges, comprising top people in the industry from advertising to production, the participants of this year's Creative LIAisons will have the privilege of being involved in the judging process.  This winning work will be implemented by Gorilla Doctors and the winning team will earn a trip to see the Mountain Gorillas in Rwanda.
