Instead of creating an ad to demonstrate the irresistibility of Pedigree DentaStix, Pedigree created a product - Pedigree SelfieSTIX. A specially designed phone accessory that attaches a DentaStix to any phone, so you can capture the perfect dog selfie every time.
SelfieSTIX was free with every purchase of Pedigree DentaStix and was supported by a campaign and app. The SelfieSTIX app uses a machine learning network to recognise the faces of different dogs, allowing owners to add fun and quirky filters to their beloved pooch.

The D&AD Awards are synonymous with creative excellence and winning one can seem like an impossible task. So, this campaign encouraged creatives to approach every brief with the ambition to 'Make it a Pencil'. Each piece of the call for entries required creative excellence to assemble. From origami to puzzle building to needlework, each pencil building process gave creatives a taste of what it takes to win.
The campaign culminated in two live installation pieces. In New York, artist Robyn Love turned a water tower on broadway into a pencil by knitting a giant pencil cover. And in London's Trafalgar Square, artist Miwa Takabayashi created an oversized origami pencil.

The annoying lump that follows you everywhere in retargeting banners until you book a mammogram.
Retargeting banners are pretty clever. View a pair of shoes online and they'll follow you everywhere. Sure, Some might find retargeting banners annoying. But that's what we wanted to be.
On October 2016, we began targeting women over 40 with a very small lump. Some women took notice and did. But many didn't.
So the lump persisted. Following women everywhere they went online - on news sites, shopping sites, YouTube, and even their social feeds. Every time it got bigger, and more aggressive. The only way to get rid of the lump, was to click to book a mammogram.
More women began to see sense and booked mammograms. In fact, October 2016 became NZ Breast Cancer Foundation's most successful mammogram drive ever.

The Bridge of light: Building an international landmark.
New Zealand’s energy goal is to be 100% renewable energy by 2035. So, we created an international monument to reflect that. During the day solar batteries charge and when the sun goes down every night a landmark reminds people how bright a sustainable future can be.
In the beer world our drinkers have been made to choose a side. Refreshment or the flavour of hops. Quench your thirst or satisfy your taste buds.

Most young women think pearls are just for grandma. So to launch Paspaley Pearls’ new collection, we created a campaign that would appeal to this youthful, sophisticated audience.
Exposing the inner workings of life on a photoshoot, this 10-minute short film combines beauty with absurdity. This branded content film created for Paspaley Pearls stars Clara Paget from Fast and the Furious and presents some of their latest jewelled collections in a creative story that pieces together what happened behind the scenes of their photo shoot.
Award-winning director Ariel Kleiman carefully navigates between dreams and nightmares, so the viewer is never completely sure what is going on.
Auckland Art Gallery’s “Light Show” is an exhibition that consists of a collection of intangible and stunning light sculptures. They truly are a wonder of light. But how do you advertise something that’s so intangible? Instead of showing the artworks themselves we turned the camera on the viewer to capture their emotional reaction to them instead.

To demonstrate the capabilities of roaming on Telecom's XT network we filmed a musical road trip across the U.S. As we travelled from NY to LA in our RV we filmed everything on the Motorolla Defy and shared our journey through frequent blog and Facebook updates - all using the XT Network.
Blues, country, rock and roll, jazz, bluegrass, soul and gospel. Made in The United States of America yet they’ve influenced the world over. This melting pot of race, politics and economics is as culturally diverse as it’s landscape yet it still hums along to an anthem that cuts through the lines of race, creed and colour.
New Zealanders Justin Devereux and Maria Ward set out on a 21-day road trip across the USA from East to West to dig deep into this rich musical landscape. From the Gospel churches of Harlem to the country music halls of Nashville to the birthplace of rock and roll and Elvis, Memphis, they cover it all.
Thanks to the help of Telecom New Zealanders are connected to this journey. The entire road trip is filmed using the Motorola Defy phone and shared through frequent blog and Facebook updates.
So it is true. From here we can do anything…even film a documentary on a phone and share it with our fellow kiwis.

Instead of sending people out to collect money for breast cancer research, we made cups. The cups were the same as bra sizes AA, B, C and all the way up to D. They were sold nationwide and $5 from every set sold was donated to NZ Breast Cancer Research Trust.
