A few words about us

Inspiration+Co was established in 1999, with Heather having been involved in colour and design work part time for 10 years prior to that.

Since 1999 we've moved our studio several times as the business has grown.

Although our studio is on the Kapiti Coast, we work right across the greater Wellington area, as well as around New Zealand.

Our team has a range of skills – all having had many different life and business experiences before joining Inspiration+Co – so are complementary and work together to get the best outcome for you.

We like to think of ourselves as the 'friendly design team' – we're approachable, we do whatever it takes to get things sorted for each of our clients, and we have a lot of fun in the process!
