NZ Sign Display Awards Guest Judge – Nick Kapica

We are excited to announce Nick Kapica as one of our guest judges for the 2024 NZ Sign Display Awards!

Nick’s journey began in London’s fringe theatre scene before studying in Visual Communication at Ravensbourne College of Design and Communication. He worked for The Independent Newspaper before his curiosity led him to Berlin during the 90s, where he played a pivotal role in shaping the vibrant club scene and later establishing the design studio SV Associates.

In 2009, he relocated to Aotearoa New Zealand to contribute to the redesign of Massey University’s CoCA design programme. There, his passion for experience design, urban life, and cities grew. After completing a Master of Design, he took a leadership role at Wellington City Council. As guardian of the city’s brand and champion of design thinking for cities he developed an even deeper interest in the interplay of urbanism and brand. Joining Isthmus—an integrated design studio—he led city-shaping projects through the interplay of land, people, and culture.

Now an independent consultant Nick takes a transdisciplinary approach that blends graphic, spatial, and urban design to craft holistic experiences within the built environment. Taking a planet-centered approach, he excels in addressing challenges head-on, leveraging his problem-solving, connecting, and communicating skills. Nick is an active member of the Society of Experiential Graphic Design (SEGD) and co-chair of the Aotearoa chapter.
