This post has been a long time coming! The Delight offices have been one of my biggest projects to date, and from initial meeting to launch party (complete with a burlesque dancer in a giant birdcage) the whole project took just a month (over February and March). I won’t lie, it was full on but what we created - pure magic!
I’ve been sharing bits and pieces over on instagram but figured it was time to give you the full tour in to the world of Delight!
Delight are a fabulous female owned and run experience and communications agency based here in Auckland. They had this new office - a cute villa right in the heart of creative Ponsonby but the whole thing was white with grey carpet and they had bigger and better ideas to make a space that really reflected this exciting next stage of business.
CEO Hanna Hegan Ngatai came to me with a mad but brilliant brief and then trusted me completely - we painted ceilings pink, curtained an entire room, stuck up huge custom decals, put pink palm trees all over the show and made what you see here, together.
We wanted to make a practical space that was a whole bunch of fun, that expressed some hardcore feminist (and feminine) sentiments while still functioning as great workspace. It’s a place to be inspired and empowered.
I won’t lie, this project was intense and hard but also a hell of a lot of fun. You don’t often get a client who is so open to a vision and making it happen in every way possible (and puts in the hard yards too). I’m so proud of this place and what it represents.
A big thanks to Dulux for sponsoring the paint for this project - and never once questioning just how many different pinks I needed!
And of course to my friends Hanna and Holly at Delight for just being the coolest clients ever. ❤️
