Aucklander Anna Phillips has emerged as the winner of an Orcon-sponsored challenge for New Zealanders to design their own modem. Anna will see her winning design printed on a one-off modem and a year’s free broadband.

The challenge kicked off early August when Orcon (with help from Mango Communications) launched the modem designer series. Kiwi artists Otis Frizzell, Andrew J. Steel, Askew One, Anna Leyland and Flox led the way with their own designs.

Sean Brown, general manager, Mango Communications says: “Orcon had the creative concept simmering away for a while and we were really happy to help bring the campaign to life.”

And for the first time ever, as part of Semi-Permanent guests were given their chance to make ‘functional cool” by designing their own modems.

The winner, Auckland web designer and developer Anna Phillips went for a geometric look:

“I predominantly work in coding, so the Orcon Designer Series challenge inspired me to get creative again. I went home and spent a couple of hours drawing all these crazy triangles until it started looking interesting. It was really fun and I’m stoked with the result!”

Anna, having just returned from living in New York and Montreal, studied at Auckland’s Media Design School and has been an avid Semi-Permanent attendee since 2009.
