Promo video created for Quazi Design, Swaziland - a cutting edge crafts company that uses waste magazines and paper to create jewellery and accessories. The "cutting edge" part must have been intended as a pun but shouldn't detract from the fact that they really do create some outstanding design pieces from waste material - a medium often associated with bottle-top earrings and plastic bag mini-skirts.
The difference is in the design and hence the video we put together to show off a few of the key elements to a company that works to balance innovative, attractive and commercially-viable design with providing sustainable incomes and skill sets for Swazi women.
Quazi Design is a small company based in Swaziland that make paper jewellery. And it's almost as simple as that - almost everything is made from recycled magazines.
I loved the fact that fashion magazines (although not exclusively) were themselves being transformed into fashion items.
I'm working on a promotional video for them (soon to be released).
