Julia Denes designed by Sammut

Julia Denes is a designer of handmade contemporary fine jewellery created from high-grade materials. Her visual identity, developed by Australian design agency Studio Sammut, is incredibly simple but delivers a nice balance between classic and craft-technique, contemporary aesthetics, detail, consistency and quality through the well spaced characters of Austin, its smart contrast of sharp and circular serifs, heavy vertical and light horizontal strokes – drawn out by the fine line border of the business card – and the light, geometric and broadly spaced sans-serif letter-forms of the secondary typeface below. A black letter-pressed print treatment delivers a light depression across the surface of a weighty uncoated cream substrate adding craft texture and a tactile quality to the high fashion cues of the typography.

The result has a reductionist sensibility that cleverly communicates the key propositions of material, quality and design across a few simple but communicative assets that appropriately frame the intricacies and organic detail of the jewellery.

Thank you to everyone who has visited BP&O since its beginning in 2011. As many of you know, BP&O has always been a free-to-access design blog that seeks to offer extended opinion on brand identity work. It has sought to be the antithesis of the social media platform that often disentangles form, context and content. Writing articles can take 2-4hrs and are carefully researched.

I am passionate about design writing and believe that spending time to write about work, rather than just posting images, furthers design discourse. If you have enjoyed this article, have been with the site from its early days and would like to help contribute to its future, please consider supporting the site with a small PayPal donation. This will go towards the costs of hosting, CDN (to make the site quick to load) and Mailchimp, and cover some of the time it takes to research, write-up, format and share posts.
