“They’re brilliantly positioned for growth and we’re thrilled to be the communications partner that will help them build success.”
Gerry Cyron, LOUD’s head of planning and innovation, added: “We were tasked to develop an emotive, creative platform that was stretchy enough to communicate different messages strongly and on brand in different media channels to a culturally diverse audience in different markets who have different degrees of maturity over a long period of time. Only slightly challenging!”
Zespri’s regional marketing manager for Southeast Asia and Australia, Judy Lee, said: “They have been able to take a complex marketing challenge and build a creative approach that has wide market appeal.
“We’re excited to be working with them.”
