New Zealand Legends

New Zealanders do things that create ripple effects. New Zealand Legends are a broad group of 100+ innovators who have shown grit, guts and genius to achieve their goals and create their visions. The context of this selection was a request to define New Zealand “design” in a creative way.  This is an electric, cheer-inspiring grouping. The selection is oriented towards “world-changing”, however there are several examples of “home-changing” that are equally inflective. Everyone here has an aesthetic and spirit that helps define New Zealand exceptionalism. Note: several links are to biographies published 2000-2013; others link to the person’s website, Wikipedia or a top-ranking Google page. The selection of New Zealand Legends can be added to, please send us your nominations for review.
