A common New Zealand Government visual identity is to present itself in a consistent and professional manner, both internally and externally. It helps everyone recognise, navigate, and access government buildings and services no matter where or when they visit.
This guidance outlines the application and design of colours and signage within government office accommodation. It also aims to include those who will be occupying the workspace with teams or individuals whose role focusses on culture, diversity and inclusion.
The overall workplace environment look and feel is an extension of the brand and reflects the image, vision, values, and mission of government and the agency, or agencies.
We recommend agencies adopt a neutral approach to theming their office environment. Creativity is encouraged and engaging with your agency is recommended, this provides people with the option to be involved in the design solution.
When designing the look and feel of a new office, it is important to consider how colour palettes used within workplace environments can make a difference to the level of comfort and spatial awareness experienced by the staff and visitors.
