Identity Campaign For A Local Jewelry Designer, Anne Giangiulio Jan 2012

Identity Campaign For A Local Jewelry Designer, Anne Giangiulio

Anne M. Giangiulio

This was a proposed identity and packaging campaign I designed for a local jewelry designer whose work is very much earthy and southwest influenced.

This is referenced by the use of metallic threads woven through the business cards, each unique. A rubber stamp was also created for packaging like the gift box. Flat-backed adhesive gems were applied to the various components for an added touch of whimsy and sparkle that juxtapose the utilitarian look and feel of the brown kraft paper.
