Talinka & Co.

San Luis Obispo, California
Located on California’s beautiful Central Coast, Talinka & Co. creates artisan gemstone and metalwork jewelry. Talinka’s work is featured in several galleries and boutiques across the nation, and was recently featured in red carpet SWAG bags.

Project

Type: Website / Collateral
WEBSITE

For the website, a clean, light design with simplicity in mind were the main goals of the visual aspects. We wanted to showcase the products themselves, and avoid the website’s design overpowering them. A white background lends a bright and airy feel, and contrasts the jewelry photography nicely.

As Talinka & Co.’s designs are bespoke in nature, we included a product request form for when prototype and one-of-a-kind designs become sold out.

Note: We’re currently revamping Talinka’s site. Version 2.0 will be available shortly.

COLLATERAL

We created several corporate identity and marketing print items, including stationery, magazine advertisements, catalogs, brochures, and product packaging. With the magazine advertisements, brochures, and other marketing print items, we focused a bit more on building an abstract ambiance. The idea was to create a relatable sense of style and an interpretive visual appeal. These adverts were featured in fashion and travel magazines, so we wanted a couture feel that fit in with the publication’s content.
