The unauthorised and curious history of DNA

The unauthorised and curious history of DNA

It was a time when Vanilla Ice was cool, Windows 3.0 was released and Tim Berners-Lee came up with a little thing called HTML. But 1990 also saw the birth of a company in Wellington called BNA design. Fast forward through an impressive client list that has included the likes of Telecom, Solid Energy, Formway, National Bank, NZTE, Unitec, Tower, and Yellow Pages, coupled with a scientific name change, and you get to the auspicious milestone of design agency DNA’s 21st birthday. 

To mark the occassion, DNA showed the video below to clients and staff at their recent 21st parties in Auckland and Wellington (why settle for just one blow-out?) Having partied with the DNA folks at their Auckland bash, we were mightily impressed with the witty documentation of the DNA story so far, so go on, have a gander for yourself.
