Fritter

Our brief was to help create an iconic event to attract visitors to the Whangarei District. Working with the Council’s events team, we’ve helped turn the kiwi favourite of the humble Fritter into a foodie festival.

The Fritter Festival launched in 2012 and has now become part of Northland’s summer event calendar. Each year vendors from across Northland are invited to conjure up the best Fritter, bring their best wines and top local bands entertain the crowds.

Washbar

A natural manuka washbar for dogs was created by founder, Jules Smith, who was asked to create a bar of soap to help a friend’s dog with skin allergies. When Jules realised what a difference that first bar made for Millie and her owner, she looked into who else she could help.

From a single bar of soap, WashBar now has a range of products, and our role to create packaging has helped to take the product from New Zealand to the world.
