zass who?

FlyTrap Photoshoot :: June 2012

We are a mother/daughter graphic design team in the Raleigh, NC area. In 2009 we created ZassDesign driven to do something worthwhile professionally and creatively, but above all to do something that inspired us personally.

ZassDesign expresses emotion through design. In our ideas, with sensitivity we transform and upcycle recycled paper printed materials, PET plastic bottles, and aluminum cans into unique contemporary jewelry pieces. Our philosophy in every creation are sought to respect our environment and the fundamental principles of ecodesign: reduce, reuse, recycle.

While our art revolves around paper and plastic, we find ourselves mixing our designs with different materials very attractive and inspiring. We combine paper and plastic elements with various metals and stones. Once tied together in an earring or necklace, the mix turns into a precious wearable fashion accessory.

Every piece has a history; a starting point. There is an element of rescue; an idea of transformation – something old becoming something new again. Each piece is individual with a unique past, present and a future story of its own.

    I met you at the CAHS this past week end. I didn’t get a chance to check out your booth but I have looked at your designs online and your stuff is amazing. I will certainly let everyone I know about the work you do. Very nice!

    Thanks, Rob Lewis
