Hawaii artist Sig Zane will begin creating designs in Ward Village through a community design partnership.
Zane’s Hilo-based design-service company, Sig Zane Kaiao, will visually translate the story of Ward Village and its history through a series of patterns, logos and artwork that will be featured throughout the urban Honolulu neighborhood, according to a statement issued Thursday.
The partnership between the local artist and the 60-acre Honolulu community was formed through Ann Harakawa of Two Twelve and cultural expert Hinaleimoana Wong-Kalu, who has assisted with naming the residential towers in Ward Village.
The partnership will focus on incorporating the history of the land into a visual narrative of Ward Village.
"Our entire team has embraced the opportunity to learn about Ward Village and to play a part in what's being done to revitalize Honolulu's urban core,” Sig Zane said in a statement. “We look forward to creating a visual narrative for a community that truly embraces its history and culture."
