About us

Tēnā koe… and thank you for taking the time to get to know us better.

Tahi Designs lives by the ethos of a purpose over profit Product Designer Collaboration. We believe that kaupapa and people are the focus for the work that we do and not the financial reward.

Our Māori heritage is our inspiration and our cultural links keep us grounded. We like the balance that our culture and our heritage gives us, and this allows us to bring that sense of balance to the work that we do at Tahi Designs particularly within the world we live in today.

With busy lifestyles, families and friends living halfway across the world, and with the rise of technology shaping new sub-cultures, learning to speak Te Reo Māori can be challenging.

We want to do our bit to overcome these challenges by creating sharp and modern Te Reo Māori resources that are appealing not only to Māori communities but to the wider community as well. We love Te Reo Māori so we want to encourage others to love Te Reo Māori too.

We not only want to create Te Reo Māori resources that aim to promote the language by fusing creativity and Te Reo Māori together, but we want to push boundaries and promote the use of Te Reo Māori in spaces that may not have been considered before or in ways that are unexpected.

We want Te Reo Māori to be a part of everyday life, and so we’ll do whatever we can to achieve that.

If you have any questions feel free to send us a message via our contact page, or give us a call.

Ngā mihi,
Tahi Designs
