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.
