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, we 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, we represent a much broader range of disciplines: graphic design, digital design, motion graphics, spatial design, product design, design in business, user experience design and design education.

Together Building the Best Design Community in the World

Kia ora. Welcome. As a designer, or a member of the design community of Aotearoa, we extend our invitation to you to join us. To engage, connect, share and compare with us. DINZ exists to be your voice; help us shape what that voice should say.
