Best Awards 2021

3rd March 2022, News by Marx Design

2021 Best Awards: Marx collected awards over multiple categories, Brand, Comms & Packaging.

After a tumultuous 2021 we were finally able to celebrate the 2021 Best Awards in February 2022. Marx hosted a neighbourhood studio event with some of our Best design buddies: Seachange, Inhouse, Think Packaging and Shine. Between these studios the awards were coming through thick and fast, creating a night to remember!

Marx picked up 15 awards, six Golds and nine Silvers, across Brand Identity, Business Communication and Packaging.

We only get to enter these awards because we have the creative opportunities afforded to us by our clients. Each brand that has picked up an award has done so because they are brave, creative and up for the journey. Thank you to our clients and please keep those amazing briefs coming!

Marx is a special team of likeminded, hardworking and sometimes hilarious people. We turn up every day ready to tackle design challenges and genuinely enjoy being able to work together. A combination of strengths that creates success. Thank you to all of our team.

The DINZ Best Awards are a celebration of an industry that constantly seeks to improve, empower and challenge the way people interact with spaces, brands, and products. DINZ has always been a driving force behind our industry. The NZ design community is what it is today because of DINZ so a special thanks to Cathy Veninga.

A brave & bold execution of sound. The graphic interpretation of the product is beautiful and timeless. A large-scale brand identity that will stand the test of time.

A great take on modern luxury, we loved all the theatre and how grand the vessels were. Looked like it was designed in the 20th century, which made it feel like it has always been here, this brought incredible quality to the project
