Design Inspiration

Sea-lebration is a playful celebration of Aucklanders’ connection with the sea. If we’re not interacting with it daily, we are never too far from it. Intrinsically linked, we are part of the ocean environment and it is part of us. Facets of this relationship are celebrated through symbols including recreational and commercial aquatic activities (yacht, kayak, boat); sense of community through a shared marine environment (hands, message in a bottle full of stories); Māori cultural importance (kete of kaimoana and Maui’s hook fishing up the North Island); and our personal connections (faces of Aucklanders, women with wave hair).
