Newspread: Ideas


A platform of discussion where we aim to connect some of the most creative, innovative and inspiring individuals or brands with our audience.

The first set of speakers were hosted at the temporary experiential space, Platform Store at Holm Coffee on Auckland's K Road.

First we hosted Sam Stutchbury, the creative director of Motion Sickness. The creative agency is based in Auckland is serving up to some of New Zealand's biggest brands and companies while keeping true to its grassroots and humble beginnings. Next we hosted Good as Gold founder and owner, Ruben Bryant. We've seen some exciting changes from the locally independent streetwear retailer with a brand new online website, a freshly opened Wellington location and a new identity as well. Finally on June 6th we hosted Valentin Ozich, the creative director and founder of I Love Ugly. The brand needs no introduction as New Zealand's most successful menswear label ever, to which sparks conversation of how they've maintained the large global success while being small and nimble.
