Earthcare Toilet Tissue Packaging

The increasing value to the brand of its creative icons, the Earthcare bears, has brought them from incidental figures on the packaging to centre stage. This was a chance to refresh the way the bears were depicted, enrich their story and add even greater charm and personality to their characterisation.

Earthcare Tissue Packaging

The desire to link the Earthcare toilet and facial tissue packaging paved the way for this new range of Earthcare tissue boxes. Emphasis on nature and the environment led to this unique New Zealand look and feel.

KiwiRail – Rail Safety Week

The core message for Rail Safety Week 2014 was ‘Stay Alert at Level Crossings’. The campaign brief was for a strong, emotive, visual concept coming from the driver’s point of view.

NZ Rugby Union

The New Zealand Rugby Union logo is iconic. However a desire to move away from some negatives inherent in the word ‘union’ led the organisation to rebrand itself as New Zealand Rugby. This required the development of a new logo that conveyed the new sense of purpose in the organisation, while respecting its formidable history. The retention of the fern was mandatory, but the opportunity to develop a new emblem created a decorative signature in the word rugby.
