Judge's comments:

This project for Tourism New Zealand, to review and update the globally successful 100% PURE brand, demonstrated rich and meaningful collaboration between Māori and non-Māori designers and between designers, the client and stakeholders.

The final solution to a very tight brief demonstrated a high level of craft and was underpinned by a well considered and robust concept with a compelling brand story.

This is a strategically significant piece of work in positioning New Zealand strongly on the global stage and does so in a way that speaks of who we are and where we are by drawing upon our indigenous culture as a point of distinction.

The judges’ view this is a foundational piece of work on which our national tourism brand and campaigns can continue to evolve.
