The Project

A kaupapa initiated and lead by Māori, The Pepeha project is a not for profit initiative from Designworks. As a studio, we are lucky enough to have been telling great New Zealand stories for many years and we saw the Pepeha project as a simple way that we could use the power of design to give back to New Zealand.

We see the Pepeha project as a gift of connection for all New Zealanders and another step in the important path of sustaining and protecting the national treasure that is Te Reo Māori. All proceeds go back into the Pepeha project.
