Nga mihi nui ki a kotou katoa,

Welcome to Rā Designs!

My name is Tomo, and I established Rā Designs in 2018. I am a Dunedin Designer also representing my Maori and Polynesian heritage. I have a background in Graphic Design, web, and custom clothing prints. I have a passion to create meaningful visual expressions of art and interpret this by using a wide range of mediums including, graphics, animation, video, art, and much more.

I use my all-around skills to work alongside others and develop ideas that can be shared in a creative and visually appealing way. I work to ensure that every graphic, colour, or symbol depicted represents the story or message that you want to share.  My main goal with every job I work on is to ensure that there is a connection in the design that adds value for you and tells your story. I also design graphics that can assist to customize and personalize clothing and furniture. I have the tools and resources that enable me to print on clothing, hats, bags, and other products – I love a new job and challenge!

The same philosiphies occurs when I am working with Cultral elements. The have certain patterns, symbols that have meaning and when you get the balance of story and meaning to create a memorable graphic thats when your design skills really shines.

So if you have questions, need a quote, want to collaborate, or just have a chat, then don't hesitate to reach out…I would love to work with you and create together.

We engaged with Thomas with a complex brief that needed to appeal to a wide group of stakeholders. Thomas was exceptionally easy to deal with and very insightful. The finished product blew us away as it answered all the complex elements in a simple and understandable design which has been well received will all of our stakeholders. Thanks Thomas.

I have worked with Tomo through my business and my cricket club. He is a fantastic creative to work with. He listens to what you want and puts together something that not only hits the brief but also looks great.

I have known Thomas TW Henry for 10 years. I started my own journey exploring the world of mobile videography 2 years ago and felt it was time to seek someone who could design a professional logo. I was after something that would speak to who I am and dive into a little about my journey.After consulting with Thomas over a few conversations we got to the nuts and bolts of what I was after and he produced more then what I had expected.I highly recommend Thomas’s to anyone seeking a professional service in designing!
