Steve Le Marquand - Resn
After gaining a Diploma of Design in 1999 Steve had the best intentions for further education at Victoria University’s School of Design, but instead founded a very successful interactive agency Boygirlboy Motion Media in 2000. After 4 years leading the way for the New Zealand interactive advertising industry, he formed Resn with business partner Rikki Campbell and furthered his hunger to produce truly exceptional digital brand experiences. Steve is proud to have Resn nominated 3 years running for Best Digital Agency at the Australasian Hot Shop awards, winning the award in 2009.
Steve has been instrumental in winning Resn a string of highly sought after awards including 5 FWA’s, 3 years consecutively with the Pixel Awards & South by South West (SXSW), merits for the Webby Awards & One Show, as well as consistently featuring as judge, winner & runner-up in the New Zealand BeST Design Awards over the past 9 years. Steve has been featured and published in many international industry publications and books. Resn has just been awarded as the #1 Digital Production agency in Australasia by the Campaign brief Hot+Cold chart.
Catherine Griffiths & Bruce Connew
Catherine Griffiths is an independent designer with a passion for typography. Bruce Connew is a zocial/political artist and photographer. Based in Wellington and Paris, they work opposite each other in their disciplines, frequently crossing over, occasionally throwing up a challenge.
Catherine’s trajectory is ‘intuition with a stab of strategic thinking’,
culminating in a mix of book, exhibition and visual communication design, while working with typography in public spaces, architecture and the landscape. In addition to the Wellington Writers’ Walk concrete text sculptures and TypeSHED11, a five-day international typography symposium held in New Zealand, her most recent public artwork is a five metre high
typo/sound installation, A E I O U. Meanwhile, Bruce’s practice is characterised by a driving interest in social issues, particularly
conflict, dissent, emancipation and struggle. Key projects of his oeuvre have shown as solo exhibitions in most of the major public art galleries in New Zealand. His artist books, including Muttonbirds – part of a story, I Saw You and I Must Behave have slowly become recognised as genre-bending extensions of his art practice, as his late-career work continues to develop apace. Together, the pair formed Vapour Momenta Books, their pocket-sized publishing arm, in a bid to support and promote their own projects.
