Design Inspiration

As tui’s have recently made their way back to Canterbury these last few years, McChesney-Kelly wanted to bring some awareness to them through this design. Some penguins are found around Canterbury, especially Banks Peninsula, which has seen new tui’s flying around quite a lot as well. The shape of the penguin sculpture is a great new way of seeing the tui’s beautiful colours and drawing attention to these two important species in New Zealand.
