Kia ora and welcome to Design Assembly Conversations. In this series we talk to Aotearoa NZ designers, hear their stories and celebrate their work.
I’m Louise and today with designer Lindsay Yee, we talked to Kaan Hiini from Curative. Kaan Hiini is the Design Director at Curative, a creative agency inspiring social change. An award-winning designer who loves to work deeply with communities to honour their realities and perspectives.
Kaan is skilled at translating project needs into richly layered creative work, and his connection with Māori language, values, and practice has been instrumental in shaping Curative’s ways of working. Beyond the studio, Kaan can be found nurturing Auckland’s rainbow community in his role as co-chair of the Auckland Pride Festival.
