Our why

Having all come through tertiary institutions that taught us the tools and trades of the ‘traditional designer’, we’re now wanting to push the boundaries of what it means to be Pasifika designers and creatives.

Our drive is embedded within the narrative behind our name, Vain - to continuously innovate the vā/space we occupy. We’ve come to understand that innovative and effective design is built upon collaboration and relationships and our design practice is reflective of this.
