Who are we
Whakaaro Factory is a creative agency that specialises in Indigenous Design and Digital Communication.
Te Ao Maori, Tikanga Māori and Tikanga Marae underpin our values core design system.
Established in 2013, we draw on our fundamental Māori values, customs and traditions learnt on our marae, through Kohanga Reo and Kura Kaupapa Māori. We also incorporate the principals of Whakatupuranga Rua Mano, the highly innovative Te Atiawa, Ngāti Raukawa, Ngāti Toa Rangatira strategic development programme to inform our design concepts in all phases of digital creation.
We pride ourselves on our ability to work confidently in Te Ao Māori and Te Ao Pākeha and Te Ao Matihiko. We strive to protect, promote and appropriately represent our culture in the digital space here in Aotearoa and abroad.
FEATURED CLIENT PROJECT
Whakaaro Factory were honoured to work on a 3 board display project for Sylvia Park Shopping Centre in Auckland to celebrate Matariki this year. The designs decorated the space, supported the Kapahaka performances throughout the display period as well as inform people about what Matariki is and how it is celebrated. This project is one of our many latest projects that have been released to the public and we're proud of the mahi that has been done by the project team for this display. Mānawatia a Matariki!
This service is to help connect our clients with some of New Zealands top Cultural Advisors. We will be launching a directory here very soon!
