For the Hospitality industry
Several hotels and restaurants have relied on me to source design, produce and/or personalize their accessories and amenities. I have also been consulted to take part in interior design and decoration.
I work on the concept and design according to the theme and brand of the hotel or restaurant to ensure a seamless and memorable experience for guests. In concert with design teams, I offer my services in all areas of interior decoration and in developing exclusive designs of accessories and stationery in order to enhance interiors and concept image. When possible I can take charge of the production of selected accessories and amenities.
• Concept development and design
• Direct and on the ground collaboration with interior design teams
• Interior decoration
• Color scheme
• Final touch with color and accessories
• Exclusive and personalized accessory designs
• Production of accessories/amenities
For International retailers & wholesalers
European brands rely on me to source, develop and produce specific product lines. These include ethnic-inspired brass and silver jewelry, interior and lifestyle products made of handmade felt, brass and copper, pashmina shawls and blankets, pottery items and many more.
For international retailers and wholesalers that have ties to production units in Asia, but lack knowledge of the local culture or are in need of a designer, I offer my services in developing product lines according to given concept and requirements – encompassing all areas of design, manufacturing details, pricing, and production. I provide a short-term technical consultancy or creative development workshops to the manufacturing unit to improve quality, sustainability and efficiency.
• Product design and development
• Technical problem-solving
• Online collaboration and updates with client
For Local manufacturers / retailers or development organisations
• Product development, design & improvement
• Technical problem-solving and advice
• Shop merchandising
Development Organization / Local Artisan groups:
Development agencies that wish to help local artisan groups often have the marketing tools and structure to find the right clients for these communities. What can be lacking at times is knowledge of design or the need for fresh ideas. I provide a short-term consultancy in manufacturing workspaces or with artisan groups to develop new products or improve existing ones. This can also be done in the form of a collaborative creative workshop.
Local retailers :
Shop merchandising is an important aspect of sales. An attractive store will inevitably improve sales. I offer a short-term consultancy for restyling shop and window displays of local handicraft retailers. After reviewing products on sale, I advise on design improvements and color schemes according to current trends, without modifying prices. If necessary I can give instructions and technical advice directly to the manufacturing unit. Once products have been modified, I restyle the store and window display.
