Ogilvy NZ is proud to pick up three Golds, a Silver and two Bronze at the prestigious and hotly contested Best Design Awards. With over 1,100 people attending, the Best Design Awards event is the largest of its kind in Australasia.

“It was a special night hosting our clients from Waikato Tainui, NZ Police and Sanitarium, on the night they were all winners. We were especially privileged to host Kiingi Tuuheitia Pootatau Te Wherowhero and the royal family, including the kiingi’s son, Korotangi Paki, who helped with the design of the Te Hookioi magazine artwork. We wouldn’t have been so successful had it not been for the trust and bravery of our clients.”

Nathan Chambers, Head of design for Ogilvy says, “I’m pleased that our work has made such an impact across so many categories and disciplines. It’s a first for us to enter the spatial, product and public good categories and to come out with three gold is really rewarding. We’re investing a lot of time as an agency into strong client relationships and mahi that makes a real difference to brands – so these accolades are a manifestation of this time and effort. Out of the twelve Ogilvy finalists we are really pleased with the Award results. The awards evening was a strong showing of the top design talent and clients – committed to purposeful design for promoting and establishing NZ business.”
