Village is an independent creative studio focused on exploration — whether that's ideas, places, or projects. We approach each project strategically, aligning our concepts to your brand's ethos before heading out into the field to translate that vision into lasting visual identities. Whether you’re testing the waters or taking the plunge, you can trust our art direction, graphic design, and photography services to blaze the trail from ideation to execution.

We take pride in the process.


 

Colin Rex  |  Photographer

Colin uses his camera to document man's humble place within nature, working largely with negative space to demonstrate the starkness of the landscapes he visits. His clean, minimalistic images capture serenity in the most desolate environments, where he combines photography, writing, and videography to create visual identities for leading brands in the outdoor industry. Colin's work has been featured in a number of digital and print publications including Rucksack Magazine, Bikepacking.com, and Alloy + Grit, and by brands such as Arc'teryx Equipment, Raleigh Denim, and Sea To Summit. In 2017, he had work featured in The Climate Museum in New York City and was named one of the 100 Top Photographers of the Year by Unsplash.

Armed with an intuitive understanding of aesthetics, and informed by thorough research, Christian creates powerful solutions for brands that are both beautiful and durable. From naming your business and developing a brand voice, to establishing a visual system for your brand; he seeks to approach each project from a holistic, foundational perspective. Partnering with Village means your brand is his brand — knowing that sometimes all it takes is a helping hand to bring a seedling of an idea to full fruition. When he’s not working on creative projects, you can find him in the front row at your local music venue, trail-running the alpine peaks of the Rocky Mountains, or camping on the desert floor of the American West.
