Sounds Like Us 2010 Design Competition Winners - Chris Taylor and Grace Kim

Grace Kim:
Nothing says Kiwi, or represents our lifestyle better than the barbeque. Its easy-going, no-fuss attitude brings everyone together, whether it's at the beach on Christmas Day, or in your own backyard underneath the summer sun, a great time is guaranteed. An unforgettable slice of New Zealand culture and truly a Kiwi tradition.

Chris Taylor:
The classic Kiwi barbeque represents all that is good about New Zealand culture. Meeting around the bbq with friends and family, with good food, good music and on a sunny day with a cool beer in hand. This is the best part of our New Zealand culture- our classic kiwi summer. This little radio would be perfect in any social environment and, naturally, the logo is on the gas bottle. It is 'powered by Radio New Zealand'.
