On Media

ON Media was formed in 2011 when three driven and skilled creatives decided to join forces to manifest more awesomeness through their collective writing, PR, events and graphic design prowess. The local trio are the go-to team in Wanaka for building better branding and spreading authentic stories for companies and individuals who desire next-level expertise. From creating a NZ Olympic hub to celebrate the Kiwi campaign in Sochi to providing up-to-the-minute media coverage of major events including Rhythm and Alps and the Winter Games,  as well as hosting epic parties and designing graphics with panache, On Media is where it’s at.

Martin Cedes – Photographer

Martin is an Uruguayan guy born in the 80s who got itchy-feet one day and ended up in Wanaka. After eight years working in advertising as a copywriter and art director back home he realised he needed a break and travelled to the other side of the world to become a pizza boy. Then he met Annabel and the girls at the On Media project. He loved it and was pleased to join the team. He’s mad about music, art, design, photography and summer, but just realised that winter can be rad too (the snow factor, you know). www.flickr.com/photos/iluminadoyeterno martincedes@gmail.com
