Thrive New Zealand
On 7 November 2012 the party applied to register a logo with the Electoral Commission. The party subsequently changed its name to Thrive New Zealand and registered a substitute logo.

Following its name change, the party focused strongly on direct democracy and binding citizens-initiated referenda.
