Library Lover's Day 2018

Library Lover's Day 2018
“The inspiration for the design of the Library Lovers' Day Logo came from a pounamu heart. Several concepts were worked up before a simplified take on the pounamu began to form. I wanted to stay true to the original image and a colour that reflected a more Kiwi look and feel. Green resonates with many New Zealanders.”
Rongo is the in-house designer at He Kupenga Hao i te Reo (Māori Language, Education, and Research). The main work of this organisation is to produce and publish Māori medium educational resources. 
“Some of the materials I have worked on recently are mathematic books, dictionaries and art posters. My work requires resources to be published online as well as in print. I also freelance, taking on jobs that continually develop my skills and abilities. I thoroughly enjoy researching and understanding the variety of contexts that this work exposes me to.”

This Valentine's Day become a library lover and make a date with a book!
