The work, the work, the work.

Colenso BBDO has been producing world-class creative work for our clients since 1969.
Our core competitive advantage is something we call ‘Commercial Creativity’. In other words, we solve business problems using the one thing we have in abundance – creativity. And there are few things as powerful as that when it comes to creating real change in business.
Our track record speaks for itself. Over a number of years Colenso BBDO has consistently won more creative awards than any other agency in New Zealand. Over the last three years the Big Won Report has consistently ranked us in the top five Best Creative Agencies in the World – the first time this has happened in its history.
But that means nothing if the work we do doesn’t achieve results, which is why our global effectiveness ranking is more important to us. We are currently ranked the 5th Most Effective Agency in the World, an accolade we’ve held for the last two years running.
The world moves fast, maybe more so now than ever. In this environment brands need to be different, interesting and engaging or they’ll be ignored. At Colenso we pride ourselves on doing things differently, finding new ways to create business results or change perceptions. Whether it’s putting a restaurant in a tree, making a giant pinball machine you can skate, creating music with the body’s movement or starting a nationwide debate about the merits of money; we have a history of doing things that get talked about.
Everybody at Colenso BBDO has the same job; to make the work we do better. Better means more interesting, more creative, and more effective. Because if we can do that then we – and our clients – will all be better off.
