About MAD

Who is MAD Media?

MAD Media was founded in 2017 by three entrepreneurs who saw a gap in the digital out of home (DOOH) market in New Zealand. In 2017, the team had one board in New Plymouth; fast-forward to 2023, the team now operates thirteen digital boards in four cities across the north island of New Zealand. These cities are New Plymouth, Whanganui, Hamilton & Taupo.

Jacques Schoeman, Ed Aish and Cam McKay* came from different backgrounds, which meant they brought different skills to MAD. The result is a company with a strong leadership in innovation, technology and creativity.

At MAD, we're all about making DOOH advertising simpler. We want to make it easy, affordable, and effective for everybody. Our fully managed service makes the process hassle-free and flexible. Plus, we always aim to exceed your expectations and deliver results that represent great value for money.

Footnote: During the start of November 2022 the Mad family lost one of their founding partners Cam due to an unfortunate bicycle accident. Cam is remembered as a witty character with a big heart and "a can-do" attitude. RIP Cam.

Had the pleasure of working with the team from Mad Media on two community events/projects. First, the Taranaki Multi Ethnic Extravaganza and more recently the Ethnic Communities Vaccination Campaign. Mad Media are absolutely an awesome team to work with, and I look forward to continuing that relationship

The team at MAD Media were a pleasure to work with. We had a rushed job and they pulled out all the stops to get my billboard up and running in a few hours and it looked fantastic. We will definitely be using their services for future advertising.

We asked MAD Media to assist us with promotion for our Head Office and Project D programme for neurodiverse learners. I loved how incredibly simple the process of getting our ads onto your billboards was and I was surprised how affordable it is too!. No doubt we will be in touch again soon and keep up the great work!

Anna Pepperell | Skin on Forty-Five

Advertising with MAD Media has been a winner all round from the start. They made it very easy to get set up, and worked out the best package for our needs. We could display multiple images for our business many times a day (and night) at a very prominent position in town and had the flexibility to alter or replace any of the images at a drop of a hat. Trying hard to get the best value out of our advertising budget was easy with them as our first choice. Highly recommended.

Maurice Edwards | Vivian Optometrist

Bayleys Taranaki are extremely happy to be using the high profile MAD Media Digital Sign Board that is located opposite our NP Office on Courtenay Street. The team at MAD Media have been excellent to work with & always extremely accommodating with completing the advertising design work for us or making any changes as required.., all very promptly! The Digital Signboard is absolutely simple & any advertisements are so easily set to run for whatever number of days you select at any time. Bayleys Taranaki certainly intend to keep using this advertising option.
