Spring Conversations – Introducing the Auckland Panel

Design Assembly is delighted to present our DA Spring Conversations series taking place in Auckland, Wellington and Christchurch in September.

Living a life well in design – let’s talk about culture, mental health and values in the Aotearoa NZ design community.

Join us for a conversation that will take a look into what it means to do work that is satisfying, how you can look after yourself and others and will examine what good culture is and how can it support your values.


Lani Dodds – Conveener.

Red Nicholson (he/him) – Curative, General Manager.

Maria Devereux – Executive Creative Director, Colenso BBDO.

Lucie Blaze – Freelance graphic designer, illustrator.

We’ll be meeting the panel and learning a bit more about them over the coming weeks.
