PHOTOGRAPHY & CREATIVE DIRECTION & COPY WRITING & WEB-BUILD & BOOK DESIGN
Crookes&Jackson were commissioned to create the launch imagery for Arijiju: a Kenyan home on the wildly romantic
90000 hectare Borana Lewa Conservancy. The home, inspired by Swahili curves and Ethiopian rock hewn churches, slinks low into a warm stone hillside overlooking a deeply green Sieku valley and acres of protected safari land that resolves into a view of snow-licked, cloud-capped Mount Kenya.
Working directly with the owner and his unique vision for his property, Crookes&Jackson photographed the visual language for Arijiju and then integrated this language across a range of marketing comms. C&J wrote, designed and published a book rich with folklore and created a website that distils this home's utterly individual air of calm - it is a tease, a flirt, a suggestion of more and, much like the home itself, it is subtle, pared back, deeply luxurious and yet also essential.
