Who are we

Since 2012 TerraFormDesign has been collaborating with clients to design and deliver solutions for life—solutions that make our organisations, communities and planet more habitable and profitable for all people and all species, for all time. We love adding value by building vibrant human ego-systems and resilient natural eco-systems that support each other and provide lasting benefits that are life sustaining, not just sustainable.

We work with public, private and community organisations operating from the local level to those with global reach. We believe ‘together is better’ and have nurtured long-term relationships with clients built on mutual respect for each other, the people we serve and the places we live, work and play.


The story behind the name

Our logo represents a global puzzle being solved with a leaf symbolising our reliance on natural resources for all human prosperity.

Terraform means ‘to make habitable’.  While some people talk of terraforming Mars our priority is terraforming Earth—to make our planet more habitable for all of us, for all time. 

The process of design is fundamentally solving problems with creative solutions. It begins with defining desired outcomes and then making the transformation to get from where you are (here) to where you want to be (there). Designing solutions is simple in theory, but in practice not always easy. And that's where our experience pays off.

The phrase for life means for all life, but also for all time. We seek life-friendly solutions that deliver life-long benefits.
