C1 Espresso

I first went to C1 when it was located in High Street, in the central city of Christchurch some time in 2009. Since the 2010 earthquake much like most places that have reopened it has moved, now residing in which use to be the old central post building on Tuam Street. C1 is an exciting, fun and comfortable cafe with many bells and whistles to entertain while enjoying one of their trademark berry and chocolate chip muffins.

SPOILERS (Here are some of the amazing things that makes C1 unique)
Sawing machine tap, lego counter, hidden doors, arcade games, roof top garden and food by a 140kmh tube shoot.

Happy Socks

I once thought about how awesome it would be to design socks, looks like I was right! Happy Socks are exactly that, they are socks that make you happy with bright and playful patterns and quality to match. This Swedish sock label laughs in the faces of people who complain and say they hate getting socks for Christmas or their birthday, as with these it’s simply not possible.

Ben Frost

I can’t remember how I stumbled across Ben Frost's work. In 2000 he debuted his solo exhibition “Ben Frost is Dead” in which he faked his own death and advertised his exhibition as funeral notice in an Australian newspaper. Lets just say not all comments around this were good but it sure made headlines. Ben is also the owner of Stupidkrap an online print shop for street, graffiti and contemporary artists.
