The Designers Institute of New Zealand (DINZ)

The Designers Institute of New Zealand exists to serve New Zealand’s design community and represent its interests to the wider world. Formed in 1991, they grew from the merger of the New Zealand Society of Industrial Designers (formed 1960), and the New Zealand Association of Interior Designers (formed 1968). Today, they represent a much broader range of disciplines: graphic design, interactive design, motion graphics, spatial design, product design, design in business, service design and design education.

The Designers Institute’s mission is to make sure our professional designers are valued and rewarded for the contribution they make to the economic, cultural and social growth of New Zealand.
