Ink created The Gethers as hosts of a children’s programming block on TVNZ’s popular channel TV2. ‘Tall’ and ‘Round’ Gether where original characters created specifically to host the afternoon programme block. The characters were highly successful, they helped navigate the children through the channel. Ink created all the on-air channel packaging, developed a game for the website and there were full scale models made for the TVNZ foyer. The characters were so loved by staff and viewers that ‘Tall’ Gether was stolen from the foyer and a reward was offered for her safe return.
The Gethers were awarded a Pinnacle of Design Award by the Australian Graphic Design Association.
