Logo endorses ‘best for Gisborne’ purpose

A simple logo depicting Poverty Bay, its rippling waters and the physical action of cleansing reflects a project designed to be “BEST for Gisborne”.

Designed by Te Rau Design & Print graphic artist Craig Willson, who donated some of his time to the project, the logo is set to accompany published material about the city’s wastewater upgrade.

Project manager Heather Smith says that the need for a common project purpose was highlighted during workshops held late last year with representatives from Gisborne District Council staff and councillors, design team CH2M Beca, iwi and interest groups.

“We all want what is best for Gisborne. That involves finding the right balance between protecting our environment, sustainability, and cost effectiveness and affordability. BEST is also an acronym for Better Environment Sustainable Treatment.

“This simple logo will help the community associate published material with this common purpose and the project as a whole.”

Logo available on request.

Greens' Response: Slum-Like Rentals Exposed In Renting Review

“...The grim findings of the review are a wakeup call about the true state of rentals in this country. Too many renters are festering in slum-like conditions under the thumb of landlords who have largely unchecked powers and ignore tenants’ complaints when it suits them.” More>>


Gordon Campbell: On The Life And Times Of Peter Dunne

The unkind might talk of sinking ships, others could be more reminded of a loaded revolver left on the desk by his Cabinet colleagues as they closed the door behind them, now that the polls in Ohariu had confirmed he was no longer of much use to National. More>>


Gordon Campbell: On Labour’s Campaign Launch

One of the key motifs of Ardern’s speech was her repeated use of the phrase – “Now, what?” Cleverly, that looks like being Labour’s response to National’s ‘steady as it goes’ warning against not putting the economic ‘gains’ at risk. More>>


Lyndon Hood: Social Welfare, Explained
