This article (link above) discusses how Brand and design agency, Saturday Creative, collaborated with Burning Red Design to create a vibrant and inviting office space for MC, New Zealand’s largest litigation firm. The firm’s refreshed brand identity reflects its contemporary and socially aware values. The strategic proposition of “credible audacity” guides the brand, blending its radical leadership with a solid foundation of credibility and integrity. Two distinct colour palettes, “credible” and “audacious,” allow the brand to dial between different intensities of audacity and credibility. The office space, called Te Kāuta, features a dynamic café area where staff can gather and socialize. The design incorporates bursts of colour from MC’s brand palette against an earthy backdrop, creating a lively atmosphere that celebrates contemporary Aotearoa. The walls are adorned with vibrant artwork depicting native flora and fauna, and Resene paint colours, such as Resene Smoke Tree, Resene Smitten, and Resene Bright Spark, were used to create the murals. Living greenery is incorporated throughout the space, providing a connection to nature. The staff kitchen and other elements are coated with Resene Aquaclear for visual appeal and protection. The design of Te Kāuta aims to maintain a vibrant and inviting ambience, even when the space is unoccupied. The project received the Resene Total Colour Commercial Interior Office Colour Maestro Award in the Resene Total Colour Awards 2022 for its lively and energizing colour treatment.
