We were honoured to be engaged to create the internal and external signage when Amnesty International New Zealand moved into new offices on Karangahape Road, Auckland. The exterior signage was purposely understated however our concept for the inside was to create an environment that would be inspiring to staff, volunteers and visitors.
We created many individual spaces within an overall theme. The room for the phone operators was given quotes and fun visuals of vintage phones. In the main open plan area, we designed large areas of text including the Universal Declaration of Human Rights to subtly remind the team of the organisation’s aims. An area for TV interviews was set up with a powerful, branded backdrop and comfortable seating. Meeting rooms also had inspirational quotes applied. To top it all off our director Nigel Smith donated a painting that he’d created specially for one of the meeting rooms, a diptych called ‘Out of the Night’.
