Rocketspark’s Launch Awards draws crowd

Locally based website builder, Rocketspark, drew a crowd of over 100 people from all around New Zealand last night for its annual awards dinner.

Rocketspark has an epic network of design partners who create websites for people all around the globe.

To give back, Rocketspark’s CEO Grant Johnson, after speaking on the company's 2021 vision which aimed to make the world a better place, announced they would be giving each Design Partner a free not-for-profit website - for life - voucher. The partners would be able to choose who they designed and gave the website to.

“With over 750 registered partners, we expect this to have a big impact. If only 500 of those partners use this voucher, that would be $650,000 worth of value each year. We can’t wait to see what kind of impact that can have on the world,” Johnson said.

Rocketspark held its first design conference in 2018, Launch, which spans over two action packed days of inspiration.

One of the biggest highlights of the event is the Rocketspark Partner Awards, which saw eight deserving designers recognised for their incredible work in different areas.

The Grand Award - Partner of the Year, went to Tonia Hill of Greenhouse Creative.

Head of Partnerships Jason Tiller presented the award saying Greenhouse Creative was a stand out because of their incredible efforts over the year.

“What I love about Tonia, is that the way she works represents what we stand for in the wider world. Her level of business and design excellence is fantastic and I couldn’t be prouder to call her one of our partners,” Tiller said.

Hill said she was incredibly humbled by the award.

“Thank you so much, it means a lot to me. In the same way I’m invested in seeing my clients succeed, I feel that Rocketspark is invested in seeing me succeed,” she said.
