Rangiora’s Create Design Studio has cleaned up at the recent Redshift Design Awards, bringing home five awards including the top gong.  

Studio owner/operator Laura Good was awarded Designer of the Year as well as a silver award in the branding category, a silver and a bronze in the book category and a bronze award in the self-promotion category along with colleague Caitlin Tindall.

“To say we are delighted, overwhelmed and proud is a total understatement,” said Laura. “To be awarded and recognised for doing work that we love is a beautiful thing.”

The Redshift Design Awards are open to all designers who work for a or Nettl franchise throughout New Zealand.  Laura and her team, who operate the only North Canterbury studio in the competition, were up against 32 other studios with nearly 200 entries across print, graphic and web design. No other entrant won as many awards as Create Design Studio.

Create Design AwardsLaura says the awards she and her team received are all down to the support and collaboration from their clients.

“We count it nothing other than a privilege to be part of our clients’ projects. It is a huge honour to be invited into their business, to collaborate and to partner with their visions and dreams,” she said. “We want to thank all our clients for their support, collaboration and partnerships.”

Laura has worked at Create Design Studio for over six years and became owner of the business 18 months ago. She won three awards at last year’s Redshift Design Awards, but will not compete next year as she has been invited to be on the awards judging panel.

Create Design Studio sponsors the printing of the popular Visit Waimakariri events calendar, which is distributed around the district each month.
