In 2007 Radio New Zealand introduced a new and fresh print and television campaign focusing on iconic and traditional New Zealand images. With some Kiwiana twists, these images were developed into ten classic and quirky model radios created by the very talented team at WETA Workshop.
A further five radios were created from the winning designs from two radio design competitions. From a campaign concept and radio competition, Radio New Zealand now has an assortment of fantastical radio creations they want everyone to enjoy.
After adding information panels telling the story of radio in New Zealand and audio stations with 100 audio clips from the Sound Archives Nga Taonga Korero collection, they created Sounds Like Us; a fun and informative exhibition they hope will produce a chuckle or two as you recognise a slice of Kiwi life.
