New Associate Director

Winnie Lai joins Yang Rutherford as Associate Director for Strategic Planning and Project Management. Winnie graduated with Bachelor of Arts in Economics from Stanford University, CA. In 2007, she was working on marketing and web analytics for Hotwire Inc., San Francisco. She joined The Brand Company, Hong Kong, in 2008 and played an active role in major Chinese brand development projects. In 2010, she was Strategic Planner for Isobar, making strategic recommendations to client management teams on various digital marketing campaigns through online channels. She joined Yang Rutherford from Leo Burnett, where she led planning projects for P&G Global and Greater China. She also has extensive experience in the luxury, hospitality and property sectors.


100 new brand images for EAST

Yang Rutherford have just completed shooting, art directing, editing and retouching an exciting new brand image library for EAST - the group of lifestyle business hotels who do things a little differently. Owner Swire Hotels asked Yang Rutherford to capture the EAST spirit - spontaneous, natural, fun and engaging - with a series of nearly 100 images. Shooting more than 15,000 frames, over five busy high tempo days, we created a bank of images that do just that. Slightly instagram, and very unpredictable in nature, the images appear as if captured by guests themselves. Lively and, at times, a little mad, the photographs speak volumes for this wonderfully unstuffy, vibrant brand of hotels.


Book launch for Tamar, HK Government Headquarters

Yang Rutherford has completed a book commemorating the construction of the HKSAR Government Headquarters at Tamar. Occupying a 4.2 hectare site, valued at HK$24.3 billion and costing HK$5.2 billion to develop, the new headquarters have been at centre of attention for some time. Designed by Hong Kong's Rocco Design Architects and built by joint venture partners Gammon Construction and Hip Hing, Tamar was completed in late 2011.


KEF E Series launch

Introducing the world's most advanced, high performance home theatre speaker system - featuring a genuine high fidelity sound - that's certain to bowl you over. Compact and elegant, E Series discretely delivers an extremely enhanced movie and music experience.

The Extremely E Series campaign is a communications platform, developed by Yang Rutherford, that is designed to last the duration of this product's lifetime. Highly flexible, the strapline will be adapted to focus on specific aspects of the E Series, for example: Extremely good looking; Extremely High Performance; Extremely powerful.
