Sustainability was a factor in the design of the gift, with those who had read the informative booklet encouraged to use it for starting a fire and roasting marshmallows. According to Director, Reuben Woods, the idea for the matchboxes stemmed from a recent camping trip. “We didn't have a way of starting a fire to cook the family food. It was an ‘aha’ moment where we considered the things we take for granted like warmth, water and food.”
The Tauranga locals are also making waves internationally, as the only New Zealand agency with work selected for the 7th volume in the prestigious Logo Lounge series of books. After a rigorous selection process by an international panel of judges, two of their logo designs were selected from over 36,000 around the world to appear in the best-selling design book.
