In our first engagement with Francis and his team, we were asked to bring our tropical flare and insight into remote luxury in order to accurately communicate just how wonderful his jungle home-away-from-home is. We worked closely with our monsieur Reid who brought his signature sense of texture and soul to the overall experience.

Looking back, this website is a balanced reflection of both Francis' and Peter's idea of a getaway. Maybe that has to do with the fact that poor Pete had to skip down to Belize on a ten-day photoshoot in order to capture the scenes that he needed for the website, during which he was introduced to the howling monkey; this somehow bound him eternally to Francis.
