We picked some more of our personal faves in this year's Best design awards...
Ummmm, excuse me, sir - but how great is the use of the R and G characters to create a rose icon? (I'll wait here while you go have another look). The young and hungry Studio South do it right every time.
Superb yumminess by Minna Pesonen for Lonely. Up for Best Small Brand Identity.
I think this new font by student designer Alex Turner is sort of brilliant (read the quote above - so true) and defo deserving of the overall Student award.
Just by looking at the each of the (polished concrete, warm timber, marble, ivy) letters, can't you tell (feel) almost exactly what these new Auckland apartments will be like? That's good design, Cheshire Architects.
I'm so impressed by the refreshed layout of HOME magazine. It's an intelligent, inspiring contender in the higher-end shelter mag race worldwide, and it's all ours, New Zealand! Plus the layout is beautiful - it feels like a Gestalten coffee table book. Art direction by those Tom Sellecks over at Inhouse.
