All cities would benefit from having an incorporated society that is dedicated to supporting the work of its local designers and makers. Dunedin is lucky to have such a society: Guild Dunedin Designed Inc.
In its commitment to showcasing the design work of talented Dunedin folk, the society has provided a dedicated shop and gallery space, Guild, in a part of town that has somewhat organically become a wee bit of a creative arts precinct. The benefit for designers and artists is access to affordable retail and gallery space in which to display their wares; and for locals and visitors there is much to like about being able to see, in the one space, the bounty of creative talent that Dunedin plays host to.
Guild demonstrates the Society’s commitment to a range of designers – the shop stocks an eclectic and ever-changing mix of everything from jewellery to clothing, candles to furniture, artworks to beauty products. Though varied the product range may be, what remains consistent among every product in stock is creativity aplenty, an emphasis on doing things by hand as much as possible and a focus on making design products that are as much stylish as they are functional.

For a small, southern New Zealand city, the Dunedin Public Art Gallery is one that is entirely worthy of the international acclaim it has earned.
