Our 'IwiConnect' service is dedicated to empowering iwi through enhanced communication strategies and quality content development. We partner with iwi organizations to uplift their people's skills in crafting content that captures the uniqueness of each iwi. By enhancing their communication capabilities, we enable iwi to share their stories, values, and cultural richness more effectively and on a much larger scale. At Whakaaro Factory, our mission is to assist iwi in amplifying their culture, fostering stronger connections, and communicating messages that resonate widely, creating a bigger impact on re-indigenising our people today and into the future.

Graphic Design 

We help our clients tailor and deliver their most important messages to their customers through innovative thinking, use of advanced graphic design technology, and of course by utilising the skills of our talented graphic designers. We pride ourselves on being able to bring a whakaaro Māori approach to our concepts and designs and to communicate these ideas visually for our clients and their audiences. 

There are so many projects that we have worked on over the years but can't display them all online, so feel free to request a private portfolio of our work that we can share in confidence.

& Motion Graphics

Infographics and motion graphics have rapidly become an essential form of visual communication in the information age. They can be employed on the web or in print to reach your audience wherever they are. Through a combination of icons, illustrations, and/or data visualizations, successful infographics are beautiful pieces of visual content that show content rather than just talking about it.
