Well THAT escalated!
As we reach the end of 2021, it’s time to reflect on yet another highly unusual year, where the lockdowns extended, the virus mutated and our appreciation of the humble picnic soared.
With most of Team Tanks in Auckland, there have been many days where it has been a struggle that can only be mitigated with either carbs, chocolate or another 2 hours on social media.
Despite everything the team have been burning rubber: building brands, launching websites and keeping socials rolling for a range of creatives and organisations.
I have had the privilege of being involved in Depot Artspace’s Wayfind Creative programme, which develops sustainable careers for NZ’s artists and creatives. Facilitating workshops across brand, web and social; and SWOT analysis have introduced me to a wonderful and talented array of creatives.
What are our plans for 2022? To continue our goal of supporting creatives to develop sustainable creative practices and build an appreciation of the value of creativity.
There are big plans afoot for more a couple more services as we see the need arise to support in more areas.
As a team we are hugely grateful to our clients, who put their trust in us to authentically reflect their businesses and practices. Allies, who have recommended and supported us, and our super smart suppliers who help immensely in getting specialist tasks done.
Personally I’d thank Gina, Jane and Zinnia for turning up and turning out work that just keeps on getting better—all this despite not having been the same room for several months. There is a strong culture of collaboration which is hugely appreciated as one of the important foundations of our studio.
We continue to keep in touch and communicate with many of Tanker’s past team members, lovely to hear from them including Nick, Silke, Gemma, Fleur, Vic and Tanydd.
We’re tapping out at midday on 24 December 2021 and firing up the engines at 9am on Monday 10 January 2022. And with that, I invite you to check out a little of what we’ve been up to below, and have yourself a safe, fun and relaxing holiday break.
Here’s to a successful 2022.
