NZ Greens – Local Government Elections
In 2019, for the first time, the New Zealand Green Party put forward candidates for Local Government elections.
It was great to have the opportunity to develop a sub-brand, evolving the existing NZ Greens brand material from the 2017 General Election. I enjoyed the opportunity to work with "Funmark" – the party funding, marketing and communications committee. In fact, a very enjoyable experience all round.

The project also involved some separate work outside the party for “Small G” candidates – independent candidates offering policies aligned with the Greens:
Clients: NZ Greens, plus independent local government candidates
Direction: Funmark and Greens branch offices. Approvals by Gwen Shaw, General Secretary
NZ Greens Local Government 2019 Sub-brand Design: Stephen Canning
Print and Billboard Design: Stephen Canning, plus individual candidate's designers around NZ
Photography: Candidate's own photography, some retouching by Stephen Canning
Printing: Various, including Soar Print for compostible "Beaverboard" billboard substrate

from the archive

This set includes a small edited archive of some of the more interesting graphics and design projects of the last couple of decades.

These have included identity graphics, branding, promotional graphic design, web and interactive design, packaging, book design, catalogues, brochures, and some architectural glass projects.

Prior to founding DV8 Creative, Stephen worked as a glass artist specialising in architectural graphics and sandblasted glass, exhibiting in NYC in 1992, and with much work still in place around NZ.
