Getting it right
Centurion, century-maker and
centenarian. How many times do
we see in the newspapers or hear
on television of a cricket player
being hailed as a ‘centurion’ (for
scoring 100 runs), or the same
word used for someone who
has reached the age of 100. A
centurion was the commander
of a company of Roman soldiers,
commonly 100 men. The cricketer

ID Media was established in 1994 as a one-stop-shop for newsletters and other publicity materials.
We produce a range of publications under the Street Scene Bragazines brand - specifically Petone Street Scene, Otaki Street Scene and Carterton Street Scene. The bragazines
(neither a magazine nor a brochure, but a mix of both) have proved popular as a means of publicising
small communities' attractions, events, businesses and people.
Further bragazines are likely.

The ID Media team can take a publication right through to client signoff, and then manage print and
distribution as required with our trusted partners. In-house we provide advice on concepts, and write,
edit, proofread, photograph and produce cartoons. We’re flexible enough to provide whatever you
need – use all of our services, or just part of them.

What can you expect from us? We could say we strive for quality and integrity, but if we didn’t have those
attributes we wouldn’t still be in business after more than 15 years. What we do promise is service that
delivers to your expectations – and beyond. We pay attention to detail, we listen and we care about your business.

We enjoy our work and our play – if it’s not fun it’s not worth doing.
