The Garnet Collective was launched less than a week after The Marketing Department was founded - they were our very first client! We worked with a local artist to develop their brand mark and assisted with the delivery of their launch event and first exhibition, Zero.
The Collective showcases the work of four Scottish jewellers and silversmiths. It aims to create opportunities for Scottish creatives to develop their designs, collaborate on projects and work together to curate exhibitions. Featuring the work of Nicholas Faill, Adam Henderson, Jennifer MacKinlay and Hannah Grace Ryan, the collective looks to bridge the gap between art and design through contemporary art jewellery and sculptural silversmithing.
Inspired by both traditional metalsmithing techniques and modern technologies, the collective represents highly skilled makers who produce one-of-a-kind pieces. This community, currently based in Glasgow, promotes the very best of Scottish art & design.
