Working with Rosie has been an absolute dream. Rosie came to us with a budget, a vision and lots of creative ideas which was so exciting. Early on, Rosie introduced me to her Graphic Designer (Natalie Jensen) so that we together could find a common theme for the look of the centre in both colour and design.
As the centre is located in the heart of the beach community Mount Maunganui, beach was the given theme. The under 2’s room was going to have an underwater theme and the over 2’s room was a land based beach theme. Each room got a custom made play area. For the over 2’s it was an ice cream truck with a play kitchen inside and the under 2’s had a submarine with an upholstered base and pull up mirror.
For the lockers we took images from the centre’s branding pamphlet and made each locker door unique with individual beach images.
Good communication throughout the process on details and design ideas has been key for the development of the project.
