Big ups to ACG Yoobee Wellington graphic design graduate Julie Noanoa. Her first published book – Maori Art for Kids – has just won the LIANZA (library) book award for non-fiction. Judges applauded the great design of the book, which Noanoa reckons “comes down to having great teachers at ACG Yoobee”! They even made special mention of a tiki pattern she created whilst doing her Graphic Design Diploma (featured on the hard cover).
The book is gaining great acclaim, having also just been named a finalist for the 2015 NZ Book Awards for Children and Young Adults. Find out more in this article published in Wellington’s Independent Herald last week….
