Iā€™m Nicole Hone, an industrial designer based in Wellington, New Zealand. I have recently started at Weta Workshop working on digital manufacturing research and development. This comes not long after I completed a Master of Design Innovation degree at Victoria University of Wellington in 2018.

The way that a design can start as an intangible idea and be transformed into something that can be experienced and shared - that's what excites me about design. I love looking to nature for inspiration - the beautiful and strange visuals and the way that things grow, adapt and move is amazing. I aim to create innovative objects and experiences that can intrigue, inspire, and entertain people.
