The Best Awards is an annual celebration of interactive, graphic, product and spacial design work from New Zealand and Australia, run by The Designer’s Institute. This year’s event will take place on Friday 9th October at Auckland’s Viaduct Events Centre where winning studios will be awarded a Gold Pin for best in category, a Supreme Pin for best in discipline or a Purple Pin for those considered to have lifted the bar of New Zealand design.
Other awards include The John Britten Black Pin, which will be given to an individual for their leadership, vision and achievements nationally and internationally, and The Designer’s Institute of New Zealand Black Pin for Outstanding Achievement. This will be awarded to a member who has made a lasting and valuable contribution to the design profession and design culture in New Zealand. The judging process and criteria can be seen here.
To coincide with the publication of these finalists BP&O looks back at those projects up for awards in October which have been reviewed on the site. Finalists include Inhouse, Strategy, Garbett and Richards Partners.

The third collection of brochures, lookbooks, prospectuses, reports, book covers and magazine spreads published on BP&O. These mix layout, material choice and print finish, and between them effectively utilise colour, type, image, texture and paper contrast to communicate and compel, as well as contributing to a distinctive brand identity treatment. This selection features uncoated and coated papers, surface embosses, foils, metallic inks, dyed and unbleached boards, a variety of binding processes, and work by graphic design studios Pentagram, Inhouse, Maud and Believe In, amongst many others.
