Great Night for Britomart at 2011 Best Design Awards
Britomart places and businesses have featured prominently in this year’s Designers Institute of New Zealand’s Best Awards, with a raft of honours for graphic and spatial design in the precinct.
Also in the spatial category, Tyler Street Garage won silver for its interior by Veneer Limited. Interiors at Westpac on Takutai Square and Southern Cross Health Society also won bronzes for Jasmax and Warren and Mahoney respectively.
In the graphic design category, the wayfinding signage at Britomart Car Park won silver for pHd3, who also took bronze for the directory board signage in Britomart’s Stanbeth-Excelsior heritage development.
Other Britomart communications were also awarded, including Special Group’s bronze-winning street posters for City Farmers’ Market at Britomart, and Shine’s street posters for Britomart Car Park, which also won bronze.
“We’re delighted to see Britomart so heavily represented at the Best Awards,” says Cooper and Company Marketing Director Sarah Hull. “The fact that so many places and businesses based here received recognition serves to underline that as a community we’re all very focused on design excellence as key to placemaking and creating a strong local identity.”
Shine was one of several Britomart businesses whose work was represented at the Best Awards, winning awards for its work for Fonterra and Mac’s. Fellow Stanbeth House resident Watermark won gold for its Vodafone World of Difference campaign and bronze for its New Zealand International Film Festival poster. Milk NZ, based in the Altrans Building, took bronze for its Ironbank branding and wayfinding work.
