PROTEST
Founded by a small group of snowboarders in Holland, Protest is a brand for anyone with the desire to set foot on a board.

A fresh perspective for all boarders. The beginners who aren’t quite sure if they’ve got what it takes. The masters who may have forgotten the pure joy of the ride. The cynics who have had millions of ads pushed down their throats. The workaholics with too many responsibilities and too little time. Protest remind riders of the reason they set foot on a board in the first place – to have fun! And inspire non-boarders with their belief that everyone can have a great time on the slopes or on the waves. Protest clothes are built to support core riders but are also aimed at people who simply want to have fun on a board and look good doing it. The goal - to make their clothes accessible to as many boarders as possible.





DEUS


Deus ex Machina (god from the machine) roared into Australia’s cultural consciousness in 2006, with some neatly customised motorcycles and a quaint notion that doing something is more fun than just owning something. Deus ex Machina is a step bigger than a brand: it’s a culture. Our openness and enthusiasm strike a chord with people, wherever they are…
Deus (“day-us”) didn’t set out only to sell custom parts and hand-built motorcycles, but to celebrate a culture of creativity. The Deus ex Machina showroom/cafe/headquarters in Sydney immediately became a shrine to ‘run-what-you-brung’ resourcefulness and street-honest industrial art.
The Deus philosophy recalls an era before the various pursuits of fun – motorcycling, surfing, skateboarding, whatever – were marketed into fundamentalist factions. All are welcomed under the Deus roof, where there’s simply respect for the honesty and enjoyment of the machine. Inclusiveness, authenticity, enthusiasm. It’s a simple and sincere pitch that has winged Deus ex Machina across the world. Deus ex Machina says simply there’s no ‘right way’ to do individualism, its all the same juice.
Since opening the doors at the Camperdown Temple of Enthusiasm Deus has spread its own flavour of internally combustible postmodernism around the globe. The way forward is one down, four up.

NO GOOD LIFE

No Good is as much about being inquisitive, mischievous & willing to embrace the untried, as it is about appreciating the fashionable & the sophisticated.

In remembering its roots & recognizing the future, No Good brings the resilience of a street urchin, the tongue-in-cheek attitude of 90s hip-hop, and the class of a high-street clothing line to the boil. It represents living on the border, and being able to adapt to contrasting settings through constant reinvention, and a vast open mind.
