Big Aroha Tours

We sprinkled some of our creative magic on Big Aroha Tours, giving them a brand and website makeover that makes people stand up and take notice.

Te Kiritaki (The Client)

Big Aroha Tours is a local tour operator guide on Waiheke Island! They are a small independent tour company operated by Darren and Jane Rippingale, two passionate locals who founded and run the business. With years of local experience, the couple prides themselves on delivering unique and memorable experiences that showcase their home’s beauty and cultural richness.

Ngā Take (The Problem)

Big Aroha Tours didn’t have a clear identity. With no distinctive branding or impactful digital whare, there was no alignment between Darren and Jane’s passion for their island and their business. Nothing that tethered the two together. Nothing that made a statement or served as a symbol to draw island travellers to them.

Te Whakaaroaro (The Thinking)

We knew that nailing this project required a journey within, so we took Darren and Jane on a discovery mission, inviting them to unlock the heart and soul of their business and their core values and explore what Big Aroha Tours represents.

Ngā Mahi (The Work)

A good website is worth its weight in gold. And when it came to Big Aroha Tours, we were determined to make their online presence pop!

From eye-catching design to seamless functionality, we crafted a website that truly captured what Big Aroha Tours stands for.

We ensured the site was easy to navigate so visitors could quickly find the information needed to book a tour or learn more about the island.

We sent our lens wizards - aka our talented photographer and videographer - to the island to work their magic. And boy, did they deliver! Thanks to their hard work, we were able to showcase the beauty of Waiheke and create stunning visuals for Big Aroha Tours' website. With captivating imagery and engaging content, we gave users a taste of what it's like to experience the beauty and magic of Waiheke. 

With our branding expertise, we designed vehicle graphics and collaborated with a local sign writer to ensure the perfect execution of our designs.
