Designing the Hero festivals
Peter Roband was a graphic designer in Auckland in the 1990s. He volunteered to help design branding and collateral for the 1993 and 1994 Hero festivals, including the programme covers.
In this interview with Te Papa history curator Stephanie Gibson, Peter looks back fondly and proudly at the intense work and fruitful collaborations to create the programmes for Hero in a pre-digital age. He also recalls some of the tensions behind the scenes.
