Xero IPO document wins silver

Xero picked up a silver award on Friday at the Designers’ Institute of New Zealand BeST Awards for our combined prospectus and investment statement. The awards were held at the Aotea Centre in Auckland with over 600 Kiwi design glitterati in attendance.

Our entry was in the Corporate Communication category, and was the brainchild of Xero’s brand manager Darryl Gray and Michael Pennington of the The Penningtons, with design production completed by Jo Maguire. Xero was up against some stiff competition from the other finalists, all of who were design agencies – in the end Designworks walked away with the gold, while DNA and Alt joined Xero with silver.

The awards are a highlight on the New Zealand design calendar, and the number of entries is growing every year. Cathy Veninga, Chief Executive Officer of the Designers Institute of New Zealand said the 2007 entries were “phenomenal” and that the Institute had received a staggering 20% increase in entrants from the previous year.
