Branding, Web Design and Photography Project
Kirsten Manzi is an independent jewellery designer & maker based in Dundee, Scotland. After graduating from Duncan of Jordanstone with a degree in Jewellery and Metal design in 2013 Kirsten spent some time travelling around Europe.
Upon returning to Dundee, Kirsten began working in a local jewellery workshop as well as working on freelance projects and commissions. This in turn enabled her to set up Kirsten Manzi Jewellery Design and launch her debut collection of structural, handmade, silver jewellery. Inspired by the world around her, Kirsten explores architectural and geometric forms with a focus on shape, line and pattern. Working with abandon, Kirsten designs through making, with many pieces unfolding themselves in the workshop rather than in sketchbooks.
Kirsten's work reflects the shapes, structure and textures of the built-up urban environment through delicate silver jewellery for everyday wear. Kirsten also works with customers to create one off and bespoke commissions.
Each piece is designed, handmade and finished in Kirsten’s home studio in Dundee.
I worked with Kirsten after finishing my internship with Scarlett Erskine to produce online content for Kirsten's business. There is a strong creative jewellery network in Dundee and Kirsten wanted her work to stand out from the crowd. In this project we worked on her website redesign, her branding and photography of all her current work.
I set up a photoshoot for Kirsten's jewellery to produce both product shots and model shots that are used for the website.
A sample of the shots are displayed below.
Kirsten Manzi's website redesign moves her old wordpress website to Adobe Muse so that we could create a website with the clean, minimal look that she was after for her business.
