Kpax Brand and Web site production

When asked to come on board to create a new identity for KPAX a financial
services and software development company in London.  We where presented
with a range of obstacles to over come. The main challenge was to design
something that transcended the wide verity of European and Asian language and design
preferences.  The company had a rapidly growing presents across
Europe and in to the emerging markets of Asia.

The brief was to make a strong visual package that can adapt to different
markets and a wide range of format's from digital, print through to IOS
and android Apps

With the knowledge that the text was going to change depending on the territory.  
We stared with one question, how do we tell this story in one Image ?

Our approach as story tellers was to create a deeper understanding of the
type of personality we need to communicate too. No one on the team had
the fist clue about merchant banking, stock and currency traders.
So we retained the help of Steve Robertson, a 30 year veteran of the
Hong Kong banking industry, We are very grateful for his time and wisdom.

In retrospect, working for start up companies is always a challenge, The briefs are often ambitious.  
Things move quickly often with out the time to create cohesion in the face of apposing forces.

After Shock

Its hard to believe its been 5 years ,
I wander back through my archives both physical and emotional , I find it hard to piece back the memories of what Lyttelton once looked like  . . . 
Apon reflection its much easier to connect with the memories of people and how we enjoyed this special place. 
What i love about returning to Lyttelton is that the buildings may have gone but the community is whole. Kiakaha

Signals

SIGNALS is another one of my ongoing photo series exploring the reference points we use to catalogue change. 

I AM: THE MAORI JESUS

 

I AM: The Maori Jesus

In response to James K. Baxters infamous poem ‘The Maori Jesus’, Ben Brown paints his epiphany as a street walking native, pushing back the veneer of wellbeing to reveal a discomforting real world picture of self abuse, religious contempt and anger. A powerful proposal from a contemporary Maori, on how he views himself and his surrounding.

Recorded Live in front of a studio audience, this revelationary piece of poetry become immortalized in wax as a direct to disk recording in a one-off performance at The Naval Point Yacht Club on the 19th of April, 2013. We where honored and privileged to document this special moment.

BY Pass

BY-PASS is a Photographic study stemming from a controversial roading project that cut through the heart of the Cuba street In Wellington New Zealand between 2004-2008

This part of this central city area was left in a political limbo for 25 years as the bureaucrats decided on the impending By Pass project that was to cut through a historical part of the city.

During this time A community of artists, creatives and small businesses attracted by cheep inner-city rents occupied this place and made it home during this uncertain time .

This study explores a unique landscape that developed in the absents of commercialization,

The story follows the assertion of change as its transformed from a community to commercial space.
