The Designers Institute of New Zealand
The Designers Institute of New Zealand was formed in 1991 by the merger of the New Zealand Society of Industrial Designers (formed 1960), and the New Zealand Association of Interior Designers (formed 1968). Today the Designers Institute represents graphic design, interactive design, spatial design, product design, design management, service design and design education. Our Vision is that professional designers are valued and rewarded for the contribution they make to the economic, cultural and social growth of New Zealand. To do this we have a number of goals: - Bring the different design disciplines together under a united front - Improve the standards of professional service - Increase demand for design excellence - Increase the profile of design - Encourage the development of professional skills within the membership.
