AMV BBDO's Andre Sallowicz celebrates New Zealand's creative ambition

How does a delicate flower manage to sprout and thrive in the most unlikely places, such as a crack in dry pavement?

AMV BBDO's creative partner Andre Sallowicz shares some of the clever work from down under.

New Zealand, often celebrated as a small country without the lavish advertising budgets or the proximity of Hollywood, has embraced resourcefulness (or sometimes the lack of resources) as a cornerstone of its creative industry.

Some of the most brilliant ideas made there have not required enormous budgets running into millions.

Look at some noteworthy examples like Samsung iTest by DDB New Zealand, Pedigree SelfieSTIX, and Monteith's 'Sorry About The Twigs', both by Colenso BBDO, and you'll witness first-hand how innovation and imagination can transform limitations into opportunities.

Visionary clients, audacious ideas and passionate creatives.

The success of New Zealand's creative landscape can be attributed to a harmonious blend of visionary clients who maximize their budgets with audacious ideas, and a culture that fosters passionate creatives who are unwavering in their commitment to delivering greatness—regardless of limitations.

Within this fertile environment, "Phone It In" for Skinny emerges as a masterclass, showcasing the perfect synergy between client ambition, astute low-budget utilization, and the deep-rooted love for craftsmanship exhibited by the creative minds involved.

'Phone It In' serves as living proof that grand ideas can blossom and thrive without the need for extravagant budgets, reminding us that limitations can often be the catalysts for the most incredible and awe-inspiring works.
