Hokotohu

These are “dendroglpyhs” by the indigenous Moriori we drew inspiration from.

The custom typeface Hokotohu in use by Charlie Ward from DNA Design in Wellington, New Zealand.

Its objective was also to promote Rekohu (The Chatham Islands) and communicate the uniqueness of the place, culture and people. The Trust believe they have untapped cultural and commercial assets which hold the key to future prosperity for Moriori and the people of the Chatham Islands. The challenge facing the Hokotehi Moriori Trust was to deliver growth without abandoning their cultural values while creating and growing their business opportunities on the Chatham Islands.
