Best Design Awards 2019

OL@-OR@ was a finalist in both the User Experience and the Public Good categories at these awards by the Design Institute of New Zealand on Friday 4th October 2019 at Spark Arena.

There was a lot of stiff competition from some very skilled design companies and students and it is with delight that we announce that we received BRONZE in both of these categories.

Thank you to everyone on the OL@-OR@ team as well as our community partners who have all had a hand in this award, it is a great acheivement.

Congratulations on winning ...
