AUCKLAND, NEW ZEALAND // Lisa Fedyszyn is Executive Creative Director at Special, Aotearoa, New Zealand, which was named Campaign UK Global Creative Agency of the Year 2021.
She is passionate about making work that makes a difference – throughout her career she has helped overseas New Zealanders meddle in their own election, which saw seats in parliament shift for the first time since 1938. She has created the “Most entertaining recruitment film” (and most successful) for the New Zealand Police, which saw the largest intake of female and representative recruits ever. And recently helped a man living with Motor Neurone Disease sell his unusable belongings in a digital timeline reflective of his deterioration.
Lisa has worked across the Australian, New Zealand and North American markets, including Droga5 New York, DDB and Colenso BBDO. And her work has won golds at Cannes, Effies, One Show and D&AD. She was named Campaign Asia’s ‘Creative Person Of The Year’ in 2021. And when she was young she was named in Young Guns Top 10 Creatives of the Decade. Ah, those were the days. She thinks. She can’t quite remember, it was a long time ago.
