    Rachael Lovelace

    Director

    Behind the scenes these days, Rachael is responsible for keeping the Wonder team ship shape and Bristol-fashion. Before the world of interior design lured Rachael, she worked in the world of advertising. She worked for agency brands such as Saatchi & Saatchi and DraftFCB as their Insights Director, travelling to NY and London to look at culture under a semiotic and ethnographic lens. Articulating brands in a three dimensional sense became an obsession. Rachael gained her Interior Design qualifications and began Lovelace & Co, a Concept and Interior Design company which went on to open many many hospitality spaces throughout Auckland over an eight year period. These days Rachael lives in Matakana where she lives in a somewhat rundown vineyard restaurant - a project which will keep her busy for one thousand years. She co-owns the company with Buster, together they think Wonder is the precursor to all of the beautiful ideas. Fostering curiosity breeds brilliance.

    Design Lead

    Katrina joined the Wonder team in late 2019 where she jumped head first into a range of retail fit outs at the Commercial Day development in Auckland. Since then she has had the pleasure of working on various projects ranging from hospitality & retail, to office spaces around Auckland, all which have been given the Wonder touch. Prior to Wonder Katrina worked in various design and management roles. Starting off at Westfield for several years as a Retail Design Manager and then moving on to Interior & Architecture firm Studio Gascoigne as an Interior Designer. In between these roles she got married, packed up her life into a backpack and traveled the world for a year trekking the jungle to Machu Picchu, swimming with whale sharks in Mexico, eating her way around Europe and exploring parts of South-East Asia. Design, Architecture and all things creative have always been a passion which led Katrina to a degree in Spatial Design.
