Te Tai Tamariki/ Painted Stories Winner Announced.

Congratulations to.......
Painted Stories-817“The Painted Stories Logo Competition attracted some excellent designs from some of our best illustrators and designers. The entries ranged from subtle and intellectual to witty and clever. As with all good competition entries there were several designs that could have comfortably won and when I shared the finalists with the rest of the Te Tai Tamariki Board they all agreed that several could have served us well as our new logo. But when I showed them the one I had chosen as the winner, the support for my decision was unanimous. Neroli Williams’ ‘painting rabbit’ is irresistible, combining a strong and versatile silhouetted image with a message that is  child friendly and although not inherently ‘kiwi’ in its references, is reminiscent of children’s literature as a whole.”
