High jewellery event promotion & branding

Email design by Kat Balcomb

A two week exhibition showcasing high jewellery from 25 of the world’s finest jewellery houses, launched with a private view. I developed a style for the event based on the recent department re-design by David Collins Studio that used finely detailed dark metals contrasted with bright golds.

The private view invitation comprised a 540gsm Colorplan Ebony board with copy in gold foil to the front and an art deco pattern on the reverse in a two-step gold foil. The envelope was a matching ebony, gold foiled with the recipients details applied in gold ink by a calligrapher. We also produced an email invite for the rest of the show.

The room was given a plush black carpet throughout with plaques, signs and elevator cladding in matching gold and black. A digital sign was created for the plasma screen network and shown throughout the store.
