The Hefty Agency is an indigenous intelligence design agency in systems-change, strategy and story created and established by award-winning 'Avaiki Nui (Cook Islands) Jamaican creative Teremoana Rapley MNZM.  Born and raised in Aotearoa (New Zealand), she has four sons, and four grandchildren.


The Hefty Agency was established in 2013 after the release of our clothing catalogue Overdue, a magazine dedicated to sharing the stories of creatives I have met along my journey in the then past 25 years.  I first stepped on stage as a 14-year old rapper the eve of Christmas eve, 1987; I am 35 years deep in the industry.
