The MakeReady team had a lot of fun putting together the artwork for Auckland Philharmonia Orchestra's APO 4 Kids Christmas 2014 concert.
Here are some behind the scenes pictures of parts of the process.
Phil News is a biannual publication that we produce for the Auckland Philharmonia Orchestra, right from first draft to delivery at their door.
Designing the Make-A-Wish calendar is always a heart-warming experience for us, and we have a fun time putting it together. For the 2015 calendar, we once again had the pleasure of working with the very talented illustrator, Lisa Allen, who created the wonderful wish factory imagery for the calendar. She also very kindly accepted our challenge of crafting a beautiful hand drawn typeface just for this calendar.
MakeReady have been working closely with Transdev Auckland for over a decade. During that time, we’ve helped them through three major identity changes that originated in their global headquarters in Paris.
While we’ve prepared many a timetable over the years, our most recent work includes reimagining their internal newsletter from the ground up and launching it in a new digital format.
We were thrilled to be commissioned to provide such a prestigious statutory body as the New Zealand Parole Board with an appropriate and contemporary visual identity. Since then, we've expanded on our initial work with the rollout of related collateral such as Annual Reports and guide pamphlets.
A collection of work from older Starbucks campaigns, which we have adapted for the New Zealand market. Collateral includes large scale banners and posters, menu panels, counter cards and table tents.
Moving premises at the end of 2013 provided us with the perfect opportunity to revise our own identity from the ground up. Versatility was an important consideration, we wanted our brand to work seamlessly across a wide variety of media and activations, from a tiny profile picture on a smartphone up to large scale signage and everything in between.
For Christmas in 2015 we decided to step away from the computer and get a bit crafty! We lino-cut 'Happy Holidays' (and of course our MakeReady logo) and printed all of our cards by hand.
One of our most cherished and comprehensive projects for New Zealand Red Cross, we were honoured to be involved with such an important event for the organisation. From initial historic research and concepts, right through to production of supporting merchandise and rollout of the identity across many forms of media (too many to list here!), we have greatly enjoyed this project every step of the way.
