A paper plane display stationed at Bayfair during the school holidays is a finalist in two categories at this year’s Best Design Awards.
The interactive stand designed by WOODS The Creative Agency as part of the Young Innovator Awards programme has been judged one of the best in the country for ‘environmental graphics’, as well as featuring in a new ‘public good’ category. This is the second year running that the Mount Maunganui-based agency has multiple finalists at the national awards, held on the 14th of October.
Designed to inspire the next generation of innovators, the paper plane display was visited by more than 2,500 Tauranga children in five days – resulting in a record number of entries to the Young Innovator Awards, now in its seventh year.
Reuben Woods, Director of WOODS The Creative Agency, says the future of the economy depends on our ability to foster a culture of innovation.
“We co-founded the Young Innovator Awards with local economic agency, Priority One, because it fits our vision of creating a competitive future for New Zealand. The more we can encourage innovation-led growth, the better.”
The display is now being taken around schools in the Bay of Plenty and Waikato region to help children develop their problem-solving skills.
