Wintec Student Designs Take Home Silver At Best Awards

Wintec design graduates Etana Zaguri and Jazmyne Powell were awarded silver in the Designers Institute of New Zealand Best Design Awards 2018 for their packaging designs.

The awards, presented in Auckland are an annual showcase of excellence in graphic, spatial, product, interactive and motion design.

The Best Design Awards measure New Zealand design against the best in the world.

The two graduates of Wintec School of Media Arts created their integrated package designs in their final year of studying design degrees last year.

Jazmyne styled the labels for Alfred Nobel Dynamite Hot Sauce on vintage Swedish matchbox art to complement the ‘explosive’ nature of the product.

In contrast, Etana’s stark white design for Glacier, a premium freeze-chilled vodka, is inspired by the journey of an iceberg after it broke away from the Ross Ice Shelf in Antartica in 2002.

Wintec tutors Mark Purdom and Luke McConnell, and design graduates Michelle Botting and Stacey Tangaere also had their work selected as finalists in the prestigious New Zealand design awards.
