Massive congratulations to Voice Brand Agency who won three coveted gold awards at the 2017 Asia-Pacific Brand Awards held in Hong Kong on 6 December. Voice were the only New Zealand agency and one of only two agencies in Australasia shortlisted in the awards alongside brands such as Hyundai, HSBC, Amnesty International, Unilever and Konica Minolta.
Voice’s client work with Aunt Jean’s Dairy, Healthy Breath/MEO, OJI Fibre Solutions, and Frucor Suntory was shortlisted for five awards up. Its work with Frucor Suntory won gold for best corporate rebrand following a merger or an acquisition. Voice also won gold for best wayfinding or signage for its work with OJI Fibre solutions, and gold for best use of packaging for its work with Aunt Jean’s Dairy and O-I New Zealand.
Voice Brand Agency’s work with Healthy Breath/MEO also received a silver for best implementation of a brand development project across multiple markets and bronze for best strategic/creative development of a new brand.
Voice Principal Jonathan Sagar, Managing Director Neil Sparksman and the Voice team were with clients in Hong Kong to collect the awards. “We are so proud to have our work acknowledged at such a high level,” says Sagar. “Leading brand work always requires an element of courage and mutual trust and we’re grateful that our clients have collaborated with us to create exciting work. As an independent agency and finalist alongside big multinational players in this space, we feel this is a real testament to the quality of work representing New Zealand on the world stage.”
