Selling in China. Low cost and low risk approaches for Australian producers

We are pleased to be working with LCD client Luckypole Ltd on an exciting project to help Australian food and beverage producers sell their goods in China whilst limiting their risks and costs. Luckypole is a Hong Kong based Australian managed company that provides product sourcing services and has been operating in China for over thirty years. This new service is aimed at Australian producers seeking to enter the Chinese market for the first time or for those that have struggled to achieve their aims within China previously and want to make a fresh attempt.

Seph Lawless, artist and photojournalist (USA)

We are super excited to be working with the internationally renowned American artist and photojournalist Seph Lawless on an international project scheduled to take place in late 2017. Lawless is best known for his extensive documentation of deserted locations across the globe and he has been photographing abandoned American cities since 2005. His stunning work has earned him international media attention from many leading US news television channels, including CBS, Fox News, ABC and CNN, whilst many of his photographs and videos have become online viral sensations.
