The Prime Minister acknowledged Plato's work and our place in a thriving and growing industry. He proclaimed it to be a great company to be a part of, not least because of the new premises which he declared to be one of the coolest buildings he'd ever been in as Prime Minister; a major honour indeed and a sentiment echoed by the team who spend their working hours here.

Plato Creative's location in the heart of Christchurch's evolving innovation precinct is very apt. Far from a typical office space, much research has led to Plato Creative's unique and exciting environment.

Complete with a theatre room with stadium seating for creative presentations, break-out spaces and ample meeting room space, this new building is testament to the business' pursuit of providing smarter business outcomes through innovative marketing, digital and creative solutions.

Following 18 months of design and construction, Plato Creative's crew of nearly 40 specialists moved into the purpose-built office on July 4th of last year. After operating in several different locations around Christchurch over the years (8 offices in just under 9 years to be exact) Managing Partner John Plato says, ""This is our home for good, and it feels great to be here.""
