‘LEVENE’ – this is a name that was very familiar to Kiwis throughout New Zealand from 1941-2008. In February 2008, Clive Moeke and David Commins who have a combined experience of over 70 years in the Paint and Decorating industry, bought the last remaining LEVENE store.
As they did not own the LEVENE name a decision was made to look for a new name, look and logo – in other words, to re-brand.
Whilst they had an idea about the image that they wanted, they needed someone to bring it all together. Clive went to Michelle Baker, Maori Business Facilitator for Te Puni Ko ̄kiri, and she set them up with Kim Hill owner of Stratigi.
Clive says: “JINGO’S! Talk about the “WOW” factor! Kim came to see us and before long – and after a few tweaks here and there – our brand new LOGO was born. The comments that we have received from our customers re: our new look has been tremendous. So to Kim and her design team at Stratigi – you Guys are awesome!”
Who are we here for? It’s the people “he tangata ! he Tangata ! he tangata!”
