Design awards for Taranaki firm

A boutique Taranaki design firm has picked up four awards for its work on community initiatives.

TGM has won two gold and two silver awards at the 2019 Redshift Design Awards for work they did with Aotea Utanganui – Museum of South Taranaki, and the New Plymouth District Council.

Director Andrea Leadbetter says the awards are a great affirmation that the company held its own nationally.

“The most exciting thing for us is seeing our clients’ stories and projects come to life,” she says.

One of the stories brought to life through design was The Big Bang exhibition at Aotea Utanganui.

Mae Zamora, TGM’s newest designer, was responsible for the design of the exhibition panels, newspaper, interactive game, and marketing collateral that scooped a gold award for creative services.

“This project was a lot of fun to work on as it had so many elements that all had to look cohesive, yet be able to stand alone and do their job,” Zamora says.

The other winning campaign was designer Robyn Morrison’s work for New Plymouth Council’s resource recovery team that featured waste and recycling bins for Brooklands Zoo.
