“For our team and our client, Potatoes NZ, winning a prestigious Gold Quill Award was recognition for the hard work we all put into the campaign ‘Potatoes: A nutritional gold mine.’ It has also become a key part of our branding program to raise Ideas Shop’s profile and demonstrate our expertise. Just as importantly, it also encouraged us to continue to look at how we measure all of our communication programs, even those that are difficult to measure, to ensure we’re delivering best practice.”
