We love to make stuff. It’s all about better than the last, more fun than the first and wondering what’s next. We are EightyOne, but we’re younger than we sound.

Gift a Safe Night

For most New Zealanders, when we need an escape we simply jump online and book a getaway. But for some of us that isn’t an option. Every night in this country, over 160 women and children are too afraid to stay at home because of family violence. Find out how we helped Women’s Refuge develop a radical new approach to fundraising.

Every child in Aotearoa New Zealand deserves to have the opportunity and support they need to live a good life. To make this a reality, big bold changes are needed. This included a big, bold refresh of the Child Poverty Monitor website and 2019 reporting collateral.

Have you seen this squirrel?

The launch of Fix & Fogg's Chocolate Hazelnut butter and Chocolate Almond butter created a bit of a stir in Wellington, home of the best nut butters. There was a lot of interest from one particular fan; a six foot tall, cheeky grey squirrel.

The Wellington Effect

We worked with WellingtonNZ (WREDA) to create a campaign centred around the thought that Wellington inspires and invigorates all those who visit, making you feel young again. It suggests that a break in the Capital may be able to reverse the aging process; something we call The Wellington Effect.
