A celebration of creative thinking - week 7

05 Jul 2019 by Alice McKeown

Like it or not emotions will drive many of the decisions we make. Even the most analytical of us will respond emotionally to stimulus. This week, the creative team chooses their favourite recent examples of ideas driven by emotional connection.

 This is us symbol

This is us – symbol

Insight created this symbol in the wake of the Christchurch terror attack and was supercharged with emotion. What I liked about this is that it embodied positive emotions of love, support and empathy to showcase strong values held by New Zealand as a nation.

Insight Creative Auckland Fit-out.

The clever placement of simple vinyl graphics turn everyday elements within the Auckland office into detailed and surprising interactions of joy and delight, over and above their obvious application to enhance and liven-up the office environment as part of the bigger Insight office fit-out. My favourite, and perfect example, is also the smallest artwork; the wee hamster running on its wheel just above the light switch – positioned for those who get to work first, or last to leave – a smile-in-the mind and emotional connection for when it’s needed most.

Repurposing things to help the planet, helping those in need and the wider community that St John supports and helps. All good, all round.

NZ Drug Foundation Catalyst Room Illustration

The illustration for the NZ Drug Foundation Catalyst Room tells an emotional story of how drugs can effect people’s lives and loved ones. The illustration allows the story to interweave many different people, roles and outcomes combining both positive, triumphant messages and sad stories of struggle and despair.
