A proud moment as our mini money pouch enters the Te Papa Museum collection this month.

Designed for clients of specialist shopper marketing agency, Energi, the pouch was commissioned for Lunar New Year 2017 as a gift for clients.

This red ‘Mini Money Pouch’ is a striking example of a corporate, hybridised ‘Chinese New Zealand’ visual and material culture, developing through the work of New Zealand businesses. It is strongly inspired by both the design of New Zealand cardboard milk cartons and Chinese red packets, known in Cantonese as “lai see” (“hongbao” in Mandarin). The pouch’s red colour and associations with money, the Chinese zodiac calendar (according to which 2017 was the year of the fire rooster, hence the pouch’s stylised rooster graphic) and Lunar New Year, are characteristic of ‘lai see’. ‘Lai see’ containing new, or new-looking, monetary notes are typically gifted by family elders to younger family members, and from married individuals to unmarried individuals.

The proposed accessory was one of the first pieces commissioned from Pedro’s Bluff founder and self-taught designer, Michelle Anson, and draws on her Chinese heritage and mixed Chinese/white English descent,having lived in Hong Kong, Australia and New Zealand.

The pouch opens and closes using flaps on either side of the pouch which shut with the help of snap buttons. This aspect of the money pouch’s design is inspired by New Zealand milk cartons, with which Anson was fascinated when she first arrived in Auckland. “The concept of individually-owned corner stores (as opposed to franchises such as 7-Eleven) captured my attention when I moved to New Zealand. Dairy is a huge industry in this country, and I admired the aesthetic of the humble milk carton and wanted to translate the quintessentially New Zealand idea of that into a design that was functional and different. This collaboration with Energi was the perfect opportunity to take that design one step further by adding the rooster motif and red and gold colours that symbolise good fortune and prosperity.” #chinesenewyear #madeinnz
  • This time last year, the Energi team was delivering beautiful orchids and @grosurekiwicare house plant care packages across the city.

Notes from the retail front line. A few years ago the eminent Zoologist Dr Desmond Morris was asked why people relate to some advertisements and not to others. As an expert who has spent his career studying humans as an animal species, he put forward the insight that there is a set of seven deep, ancient, underlying drivers that shape our lives. These are core ingredients that we continually …

Q&A with Mel Lee – Strategic Director @ Backchat Media Facebook threw us all a curveball at the beginning of this year, rolling out a series of changes in how it presents and serves up content. Posts by friends and family are now placing higher in our news feed, resulting in fewer posts from the publishers and businesses we follow. Now I thought who better to discuss these changes …

For most companies competing for Google or Facebook News Feed placement comes at a significant cost. Facebook algorithms are constantly being tweaked requiring companies to spend more money to maintain their already tenuous place on consumers’ news feeds. Likewise, bidding wars for Google Ad Words can see marketing budgets blown long before they were scheduled. Like it or not, it’s a fact of life.  So how then, do some …

Scrolling

We have all been here before, you’re scrolling through your Facebook feed and within seconds your knees deep in a block of ads. I like many, have produced plenty of these as part of any standard digital marketing campaign. But as both a consumer and creator of content, I have to be honest with myself that the collective has learnt to tune these out. Facebook recently addressed this issue, …
