We were delighted to pick up three wins at the Museums Australia Publication and Design Awards 2015 (MAPDAs) in Sydney on Friday night.
The Gallery won in three categories – Exhibition Catalogue (Meet Me in the Square: Christchurch 1983-1987), Magazine (Bulletin), and Poster (Burster, Flipper, Wobbler, Dripper, Spinner, Stacker, Shaker, Maker).
Huge thanks and congratulations to everyone involved in these projects, in particular Jonty Valentine, David Cook and Sarah Pepperle for Meet Me in the Square, Peter Bray for the Burster Flipper posters and Aaron Beehre and Narelle Denmead for a year of great Bulletins.
The Bulletin award was particularly special as it recognises the first year of our exciting new partnership with the University of Canterbury School of Fine Arts, which sees the Bulletin's design undertaken by students. It's been great to feel the energy and excitement around the magazine, and we're really excited to see where the project develops from here.
B.180 will be out very soon. It's a good one too!
