About Us

IHI - an Aotearoa design studio

IHI Design. IHI is an acronym for 'Ihi Heke Iho' (power descending- a metaphor for two - way communication) & also
'Into Higher Ideas'. The other acronym is 'I Honour Ideas' which is the mission statement for IHI. The Maori word 'IHI' means 'power'. It is one of the seven principles of life (in Te Ao Maori). It is the inspiration for the name of my studio- in the broader context it means 'powerful' ideas. I am a graphic designer/visual artist and this is my studio.
