Web Design

Te Hauora o Ngāti Rārua

THONR's website was holding them back, so we built them a faster, slicker one.

Te Kiritaki (The Client)

Te Hauora o Ngāti Rārua (THONR) is a kaupapa Māori health service committed to providing the very best care to all whānau in the Marlborough region who need their support.

Te Take (The Problem)

When Te Hauora o Ngāti Rārua came knocking with a website that was more last season than leading-edge, we could tell they needed an injection of Ryze magic.

Their digital whare was a few beats behind, failing to connect with their community and iwi organisation.

It was time to enhance their mana, Ryze style.

Te Whakaaro (The Thinking)

Embracing the challenge with open arms, we set out to give their online whare a facelift and weave their identity and values into every corner of their website. So, we got up close and personal with the team, diving into kōrero and sharing visions that felt more like whānau catch-ups than formal hui.


The end goal? A website honouring the iwi's heritage and something that was aesthetically impactful and packed with Ngāti Rārua’s essence. A digital whare ready to connect and grow with their community.

Ngā Mahi (The Work)

With our game faces on, we gathered the Ryze crew to devise a plan. We wanted to create something to make the THONR team and board members proud to stand beside.


We built a slick temporary homepage to keep the waka steady as we paddled towards the complete site revamp.


With no formal brand direction, we chose colours and design elements that connected THONR with their people and iwi organisation.


Our copywriters turned on their A-game, crafting words that hit home and resonated deeply.


Meanwhile, our development team was all hands on deck, smoothing out the techy bits to ensure everything ran like a dream.
