Prizes and Awards

  • Awarded gold in the 'Public Good' category of the Designers Institute of NZ Best Design Awards. I was a lead researcher and writer on the project which brought together a series of community development organisations that worked with the homeless community with a co-design company (ThinkPlace). The judge's commented that "after [they] awarded this the gold, we were told a story about a rough sleeper who literally sleeps with his copy of this ground breaking piece of information design. This says it all, that something could get it so right for both agencies and for the people experiencing rough sleeping". - Design Institute of New Zealand Best Design Awards (2015)
