Do more, be better

2 minutes walk from here

We are based in an extremely vibrant party of town called Karangahape Road.  Running along a ridge above downtown Auckland, ‘K’ Road’ has a very colourful history. It used to be famous only for the sex shops and nightclubs, but it has now become a hub for some of the most creative minds in Auckland.

Jessica and I went for a short walk at lunchtime and snapped a few photos on my iPhone. For those who’ve never been here, it will give you a small glimpse into the area where we work.
