The artwork for the Wellington Resilience Chocolate Bar is available to order through our PledgeMe page.

When we decided to create a chocolate bar for Wellington emergency kits, we wanted a strong Wellington theme. We also wanted to capture the vibrancy of the local street-art. Caroline, Nikau’s communications and marketing whizz, suggested Stephen Templer.  We gave Stevey a brief encompassing real and imagined threats to the city. You will also see the civil defence colours of our partner WREMO and some iconic Wellington sights.

Stevey T is well known in wellington for his work as an illustrator, artist and with projects like Batucada and Cuba Dupa. You may recognise his work which is visible around the city.


We’re offering Stevey T’s artwork as rewards on our PledgeMe campaign.  First up is a poster, which is slightly smaller than A1. It comes on shiny 200gsm silk stock paper.

Next is an A3 version printed on German Etching fine art paper. Finally we are offering an A1 (large poster size) version on German Etching fine art paper.

Because the artwork is custom designed, to wrap around the chocolate bars, it doesn’t fit standard sized paper (A4, A3 etc.)  This is why the fine art prints come with a white border.
