Enjoy exploring my gallery of maritime, landscape, buildings and other paintings, mostly created in the wonderful, challenging, exhilarating medium of translucent watercolour.
New Zealand Post Office. 1960s through 70s was the modern era for corporate symbol/logo design ... it became the golden era. I designed this symbol in 1975. The envelope suggests the letters NZ. The crown implied government ownership and the three divisions of the PO. Later it was removed when the divisions became separate entities.
The symbol became a memorable, iconic design.
