About us

Motive8 uniquely combines strategic business analysis with compelling pictorial representation. We can communicate even the most challenging organisational issues in a logical, meaningful and engaging way.


We're passionate about visual thinking and the benefits both the process of creating a picture, and the resulting visual tool can offer to executives, managers, staff and other stakeholders.  It's all about making it easy for people to understand what they need to know. That's what we've been doing since 2002.


Motive8 fully came to life in 2007, after 5 successful years of developing Big Pictures for clients of Tecads, New Zealand's leading industrial marketing advisors.  Since then we've worked with Executives, Managers and other Leaders across many government agencies, local government and the commercial private sector, helping them all empower, excite and engage their audiences.

Here’s why we’re named Motive8.
