Each item is handcrafted by artisans and makers around the world or can be made at home with the brand’s easy knit-kits. Wool and the Gang is championing the return to traditional craftsmanship, education, individuality and social awareness while disrupting the fashion industry by delivering fast fashion responsibly and collaboratively. As part of a tight dynamic team, I worked closely with all departments of the company such as: Creative, Marketing, PR, Products, Wholesale, Customer Experience and Tech. I was responsible for designs across all media - online and offline, in order to nurture, develop and deliver a memorable brand experience. As an active member of the creative team I was involved in idea generation, trend research, mood-board development for a busy schedule of photoshoots and seasonal campaigns. Throughout the graphic design and art direction aspects of the brand, I created a consistent and coherent aesthetic defining the identity of Wool and the Gang. This involved the development and production of outstanding product and customer experience through the packaging materials, the brand’s iconic patterns and other branded outcomes. Among other things I also worked on seasonal lookbooks, PR related designs and special projects, such as a featured editorial for Urban Outfitters. On the digital side, I worked on designs for key marketing, content and E-commerce assets: WATG Newsletters, published three times a week to over 90K subscribers. Contribution to content across social media platforms such as Instagram, Facebook and the blog. I created compelling graphics and visuals to engage with the brands community and help growth. I was in charge of the WATG Pinterest account working on the weekly curation of the brand’s boards, consistently increasing followers and engagement. I was also created engaging designs for the site's homepage and key landing pages.
