The Cuba was one of the first ships to bring settlers to Wellington. To us it epitomises courage, vision and a collection of stories packed into a small space, setting out on a big adventure.
Added to this, our offices are in the Cuba quarter of the city – a colourful part of Wellington humming with cafés, art galleries, creative spaces, music venues, vintage stores, secondhand bookshops and small publishers.
