Alexandra and Dean

Owned and run by New Zealanders, what sets Antipodean apart is its deep connections within New Zealand and passion to change the way people experience our country. We saw a need to offer something different to “off-the shelf luxury” holidays, and authentically deliver up something individual for each new client.

Our design story

The name of our company is “Antipodean” /anˌtɪpəˈdiːən/, referring to people from, or things relating to New Zealand or Australia. Our logo design is based on the actual meaning of “Antipodes”: Any place on earth that is the diametrically opposite point on the earth to it.

Which is why the English called New Zealand “the Antipodes“, and the name has stuck.

Our logo

By working with triangles and having them point upwards and downwards this:

  • Evokes the meaning of the word Antipodes, two points.
  • Indicates the movement of travel, with the opposing direction of the arrows.
  • Reflects the letter A in Antipodean.
  • Represents the North and South Island of New Zealand.
