Te Wairoa - Visual Identity Project
As with many districts in New Zealand, Te Wairoa takes its name from the main river ﬂowing through the district. The full name of our magniﬁcent river is “Te Wairoa Hōpūpū Hōnengenenge Mātangi Rau” which means the long, bubbling, swirling, uneven waters and from the shortened designation we get the entire district named Te Wairoa.
Whether you live in Wairoa, Tuai, Māhia, Nūhaka, Frasertown, Ohuka or any other settlement in the district, our Te Wairoa identity groups us together, representing the district’s people, places, culture and history.
Our Te Wairoa identity has been created by the people of Te Wairoa for the people of Te Wairoa and their visitors, following an extensive community consultation exercise in March 2015, which engaged school students, community clubs and organisations, youth groups, business owners and managers, local artists and a large number of residents.
The identity provides an opportunity to showcase and celebrate Te Wairoa as a district, at the same time strengthening and uniting the community.
Please have a look at the gallery below for some examples of how the visual identity can be used.
