    Thanks to the organisers and the amazing client.

    We had a great time and are stoked to bring it home for New Zealand

  3. It was great working together, we learned a lot! Our client’s brief was “make it serious, professional, but hopeful” and we feel we have fulfilled that with our design perfectly. We are going to add a few new surprises to the website as it is transferred to the client’s site, because we were really looking forward to delivering some “nice to haves” along with our “must haves”.

    The New Zealand team were lovely, and it’s a shame we didn’t get much time to meet with them before the event. We felt a bond of shared struggle with our counterparts on the team from across the whiteboard!

    It was a great competition and it’s brilliant that both of the fantastic charities have walked away with something miles better than they had before!
