Colenso BBDO

Colenso BBDO has been producing world-class creative work for iconic local and global brands since 1969.

Today our client list includes Vodafone, Air New Zealand, Yellow, V, Mainland, Anchor, Top Top, TVNZ, DB, Burger King and Fisher & Paykel.

We believe the most effective thing we can give our clients is great creative work. Everyone at Colenso has the same job - Make the Work Great - and it’s tht obsessive focus on The Work that distinguishes us.

Despite being a boutique Auckland brand shop, we’re recognised as the most creative and the most effective agency in New Zealand.

Awarded more for our creativity than any other agency across the past decade, we won 61 creative awards in 2009, for 22 campaigns for 15 clients including all of our biggest.

We’ve also been named Most Effective Agency of the Year at the New Zealand EFFIE Awards for two years running.

These days, our focus is on progressive creative work that creates conversation around our clients’ brands. With brands we’ve built now being rolled out internationally and our work now in the running in several global markets, we aspire to be one of the world’s great agencies that just happens to be based in Auckland.
