New colour ambassadors for Dulux NZ

New colour ambassadors for Dulux NZ

Alex & Corban, Ben Crawford to support colour initiatives

Their home renovation skills saw them crowned the champions of TV3’s The Block NZ…and now they’re lending their winning eyes for colour and design to Dulux NZ.

Alex and Corban Walls and Ben Crawford have been appointed to the roles of new Colour Ambassadors for Dulux to help inspire and educate Kiwis about selecting the right colours and products for their homes.

Talented husband and wife design duo Alex and Corban have launched their own highly successful entrepreneurial ventures since taking out last year’s series of The Block NZ.

Alex leads their interior design and styling business, Alex and Corban Home, while Corban works on large-scale commercial projects with his creative engineering company, Special Projects.

“We’re delighted to be working with Alex and Corban who we feel are a natural fit for Dulux,” says Dulux Brand Manager for Colour Davina Harper. “As Kiwis increasingly search for design inspiration online, their popular blog and social media channels have become a hub for those seeking quality products and advice.”

Designer, author, marketer and The Block NZ 2012 winner Ben Crawford has a creative flair for design and architecture. He has recently completed building his ‘dream home’ in Auckland, a project he shared through his weekly Herald on Sunday column.

“Ben is such a likable personality with so much knowledge of the industry,” Harper says. “We know Kiwis will benefit from hearing his take on Dulux products, particularly from a performance point of view.”

All three influencers will share their passion for colour and design with their own audiences and bring awareness to Dulux through Colour Forecast events, product launches and public relations efforts.

Alex, Corban and Ben will take up their new Dulux roles from 1 October and work in conjunction with current Dulux Colour Ambassador Alex Fulton.
