Motion Sickness

New Zealand

The Campaign’s Global Agency of the Year Awards were made for Motion Sickness; the hot young agency from Aotearoa New Zealand truly is like no other, and has no aspiration to become a global network.

Founded 10 years ago in a student dorm by Sam Stuchbury with no prior agency experience, Motion Sickness is now a 23-strong multi-award-winning agency punching far above its weight to challenge some of the world’s most well-known advertising establishments. Bestads rank Motion Sickness #1 in New Zealand and 3rd agency globally, with Sam ranked #1 ECD in the world. He is Campaign Awards AU/NZ 2023 Young Creative Person and Young Business Person of the Year. With the mantra “to make stuff that people want to see, for brands that want to be seen’’ Motion Sickness leads in thought-leadership and innovative thinking driven by a culture that allows creativity to come from anywhere and go anywhere. In 2023 Staff numbers rose by 29%, agency revenue grew by 15%, and profitability rocketed up 127%; this unconventional, self-determined agency deserves to be to recognised as the very best all-round performer on the globe.
