Corinne Smith - What I love about Devonport

June 19, 2012

While we're in the same place for the next few months we've invited guests to contribute to There & Here by telling us what they love about their favourite place in the world. Our guest this week is Corinne from Auckland, New Zealand. 

Corinne Smith - Devonport typographic poster

What I love about Devonport is I can call it my wā kainga (home).

I’ve designed a typographic poster that highlights and locates the essence of what makes Devonport my favourite place. The poster is bilingual, in light of Matariki (Maori New Year) and recent research into my iwi and genealogy. As much as I love to travel and have been to some amazing places, there really is no place like home. I’ve been fortunate to call this small maritime village my home for the past six years, when my musician partner joined the Navy. Devonport is a creative hub with a great community vibe that is strengthened by the presence of the Navy. I’m very lucky to be surrounded by beaches, history and art, and get a great coffee or wine!
