Conner Ives

E-Commerce Website Design

Conner Ives

2021

  















































The UK based label Conner Ives, from it’s inception, has looked to address how they can make smarter and more sustainable clothes through the use of dead-stock and vintage garments. Nostalgia is portrayed in an almost literal sense as a result of his design process. In close collaboration with the designer, I have conceptualised and designed his first e-commerce platform showcasing his collections, garments & story. Heavily inspired by 90’s advertising  design, the site makes use of a lot of whitespace. Typeface, Big Caslon, designed by British type designer Matthew Carter. Website developed by Eric Price.

An Image

Artist Publication

Dominik Hodel

2018










Dominik Hodel’s work has always revolved around the circulation of images in everyday life. Today, more than ever, an object / subject navigates to the point of losing its stance between screens, billboards, magazine covers, social media platforms and façade banners. In this publication, which was developed for the exhibition Product Placement at Coalmine Gallry in Winterthur, Switzerland, Hodel skilfully negotiates topics such as medial intimacy or the image as a role model. The moment the photographed object holds the camera towards us, the circle closes and we become aware of our own objectivity. This publication has been designed in close collaboration with the swiss artist & photographer Dominik Hodel.

Fidan Novruzova

2021




































Azerbajani womenswear  fashion designer Fidan Novruzova, launched her namesake label back in October 2020. Novruzova’s cerebral garments are quietly imbued with manifold layers of symbolism, exploring the notion of modern nostalgia while nodding to her heritage. The designer has returned to Moldova to build her brand and where she draws inspiration for her collections, often combining futuristic and experimental silhouettes. Her materials and garments are sourced and produced locally in Moldova, whilst she collaborates with global talent on building her brand.

Piece of You

Art Direction

Laura Tanzer

2020

    

As part of Laura Tanzer’s final year project for her BA at Central Saint Martins, she has collected old garments of various different personas within the fashion industry and close circle of friends. Those garments created the backbone of her collection which she then processed into her six look graduate collection. The project Piece of You is an ode to upcycling and sustainable fashion and honors the people that have inspired and shaped her along her carreer.
In close collaboration with Laura Tanzer we have worked on a narrative documenting her process, impacted by a nationwide lockdown due to the coronavirus pandemic. A book about the project is currently in the making, further showing how her garments made their course through various shoots and magazines, closing the cycle of her project.

Musem des Landes Glarus

Graphic Identity, Pitch

Museum des Landes Glarus

2017













.    




The «Museum des Landes Glarus» is located in one of the most important secular buildings of the 17th century in Switzerland: the Freuler Palace. The magnificent building was built in 1642–1648 for the Glarus Guard Colonel Kaspar Freuler. The museum displays the richly furnished interiors of the 17th century and the history of the Canton of Glarus. Repetition, symmetry, patterns and decorative elements are distinctive design features in this building.
Together with two other graphic designer we were invited to rethink the palasts graphic identity and propose a redesigned language. I based my aesthetics around the aformentioned design qualitites of the museum and created a pattern/form system drawn from symmetrical elements found throughout the palast.

Herbarium der Sehnsucht

Artist Book

Maria Josefa Lichtsteiner

2015

In the context of a call for proposals from the Albert Koechlin Stiftung on the theme of ‘longing’, Maria Josefa Lichtsteiner was able to realise her project Herbarium der Sehnsucht (Herbarium of Longing) with a publication and a garden installation. She chose 20 private gardens in central Switzerland for her project and visited them several times over the course of a year. With the garden installation in the park of the Bruder Klaus Museum, the artist attempted to convey moments of longing, as expressed in the conversations with the private gardeners. Following the cycle of vegetation, the installation changed constantly from spring to autumn.

In this book, the artist approaches the field of tension between hope, patience and transience – which emerged in the conversations about longing, and which is directly linked to the place of the garden – in different ways and draws across drawings, collages, photographs and silkscreen prints.
