As a designer, Mahani combines an exceptional creative eye with a solid understanding of strategy, brand personality and packaging. With over 20 years experience working on international brands like Porsche, Microsoft and Elizabeth Arden, as well as local favourites such as Griffins, ETA, KFC, Fonterra and Pams, Mahani knows all the creative secrets of successful design.
A passionate yet discriminating shopper herself, Mahani has a knack for finding crucial insights into consumer behaviour then leveraging them within the design process. Food photography is a frequent part of it, and it’s an area where her love of good food and art director’s instinct for styling shine through.
Outside of work, Mahani can often be found browsing her favourite stores for creative inspiration and coveted classic pieces to add to her collection.
