Te Tai Tamariki Branding - submissions for a new logo are closing soon!

Congratulations to the anonymous winner for the additional title Painted Stories for Te Tai Tamariki branding. This name was chosen after much deliberation and discussion over some very creative names - many, sadly were already taken by some prestigious companies we found on Google!
The committee felt this name appropriately conveyed the idea that Te Tai Tamariki is all about visual storytelling. So now the competition is open for submissions for an accompanying logo. Win $$ too.
