After more than a year of refining and perfecting, we have listened to your feedback and taken the plunge. From April 6th 2018, Creative Junction magazine will become known as ‘Northlanders’.


We’re refreshing and re-launching our website to a name that will resonate with us all up North and will truly represent everything we care for and want to know more about.


The name is simple, to the point and is all about creating a positive news feed and community hub for locals. The website will be how our magazine is viewed, no more having a pdf to open or download. Better for our readers and better for our clients.


News will be instant and comparable to some of the main media outlets you may be used to online. There’ll be absolutely no confusion when we say we are Northland’s positive newsfeed!


What will happen to Creative Junction?

Creative Junction will continue to offer the awesome content marketing services we always have, alongside the magazine. So the magazine will be northlanders and the content marketing agency, Creative Junction- easy, right?

Rebecca Varley, Account Manager

Rebecca Varley studied at AUT and has a Bachelor of Business studies with a major in advertising. Like many of us upon graduation she headed on her OE and ended up spending 15 year’s overseas building a strong career in both London and Melbourne in media sales, marketing and events.
In London, Rebecca worked across the events industry in student recruitment, franchising and security before moving onto the prestigious Daily Mail Home Show as a section manager of  Home Interiors & Home Improvement. In Melbourne Rebecca joined Diversified Communications which ran leading events including The Good Food Show and Grand Designs Live.
Joining the event director to launch a new event into Australia gave Rebecca the chance to help build an event from scratch and gave her the full understanding of what it takes to launch, promote, sell and organise a new event to the market.
Upon moving home to her native New Zealand in 2014 Rebecca and her husband made the decision to make a lifestyle change and be closer to family and friends moving into Whangarei and has never looked back.
Rebecca added print and online to her repertoire of media when she joined Fairfax Media in 2016. She discovered that Northlanders are inspirational people who are carving out a better life for their families through hard work and and sense of entrepreneurial spirit.
When the opportunity arose for Rebecca to join the Creative Junction team, she jumped at the chance as she realised she has found her true passion – supporting and sharing local news and stories.
Rebecca has the passion and drive to help Northlanders reach their full potential through the website that will bring a positive news and a sense of community to this online space.
Rebecca is delighted to have joined the business at a time where Northland is growing and evolving and becoming an exciting place to live and work.
