Vibrant illustrations form NYE creative

The creative for Sydney's iconic New Year's Eve celebration has been revealed and will run throughout the city until early January. Having retained The City of Sydney as a client for seven years, independent creative experience agency Imagination is behind the work. 'Wonder’ is the theme and it showcases vibrant illustrations by Sydney-based multidisciplinary designer and artist, Nadia Hernández. The City of Sydney and Imagination say they have continued
their commitment to fostering local creative talent. Around 600 banners with five designs will be displayed around the Sydney CBD. Imagination director Heath Campanaro says the agency’s ongoing relationship with the City of Sydney remains a "creative dream". The City of Sydney sits alongside other Imagination clients such as Ford, Westpac, Samsung, Mastercard and Lend Lease.
