Malcolm and Richard Leask are among our all-time favourite collaborators.
Born and bred in the country, these down-to-earth brothers combine a salt-of-the-earth, hard slog farming background with a progressive vision of sustainable grape growing. Their wine is so good it blows our minds.
We love their general ethos—these guys are mad about their families, their heritage and the business of growing the world’s best grapes. Humble, lion-hearted and the hardest working blokes we know, they are big thinkers with the courage to look outside the square.
When Mal and Richard first came to us, they had never worked with designers before. With their signature enthusiasm and minds wide open, they took to design thinking like ducks to water. They now consider it in every single business decision they make, fully conscious of the colossal impact design has on their brand and bottom line.
As a result of their respectful and supportive partnership, we’ve done some of our best work for Hither & Yon, picking up one of the biggest awards in the business for our branding work. It’s a beautiful example of the heights that can be hit when you’re on the same team, with the same goal in sight, with the same drive to achieve greatness.
