Maraea Gourlay (Tūhoe)

Te Kaiwhaitohu / Designer

Maraea is a recent graduate from Victoria University’s design school with a string of accolades: she was the recipient of both a Victoria University of Wellington Taihonoa Scholarship and a Victoria Achiever Scholarship. After seeing her impressive portfolio, Ocean snatched her up and made her an offer she couldn’t refuse. She has a bucket load of raw talent across design and illustration. Watch this space - she’ll tell us something funny once she’s settled in more.
