Campbell-Rey is a creative consultancy and design partnership founded by Duncan Campbell and Charlotte Rey.
Working fluently across the fields of creative direction, branding, curation and design, Campbell-Rey’s practice is united by a grounding in culture, a sense of irreverence and a playful, elegant aesthetic.
Together they have undertaken commissions for some of the worlds most innovative and desirable brands.
Gestalten is a Berlin-based publisher and think-tank that specialises in coffee table books about contemporary creative culture. In 2014, the publishing house approached us to write a book on modern craftsmanship.
Selecting 40 makers from around the world, each with a unique story, the book centred on the value of contemporary craftsmanship in our increasingly digitised world. From a watchmaker in Switzerland producing only a handful of watches per year, to a pottery firm in Kyoto that has been running in the same family for 15 generations, what unites the craftspeople featured is an unwavering dedication to their vocations and a belief in the value of the handmade.
