EditorNews Make a Comment

NEW YORK, Today: The runaway gobal success being enjoyed by Motor Neurone Disease NZ’s David’s Unusables has singlehandedly propelled Special Auckland, and production house The Post Office Auckland, right into the One Club’s 2022 global creative rankings.

The rankings incorporate results from all of the club’s leading global, regional, and local awards shows – covered in M+AD earlier this week.

Other NZ companies who produced outstanding work clearly did not enter the awards this year.

Special is honoured in the Overall Agency Rankings (#7), plus the Independent Agency Rankings (#2), and Highest-Ranked Work (#4).

The Post Office is listed in Highest-Ranked Work (#4) and Production Company (#3). Special’s Ky Lee made the global Designer of the Year list.
