It's always nice when a client comes back to you. Sometimes it takes a few years, just waiting for the right job, but when a former client gets in touch, it's like a call from an old friend. Bucherer is one such client, we originally worked with them back in 2013 and some eight years later, they came back with a new project.

As jewellers of the highest order, and with the retail world reawakening after Covid, they were looking for something very special to go in the windows of their Swiss stores. It had to be big, bold and bright and they specifically wanted to work with a vector artist. Thankfully, the the queen of vector illustration is on our books and Malika Favre was delighted to work with them again.

The brief gave guidance but freedom (just the way we like them), and Malika set about creating a series of images inspired by 'Birds of Paradise'. The only remit was that the imagery had to work as both portrait and landscape and they wanted layered vector files, so the windows team could get creative with the construction.

Malika delivered in abundance. Creating five illustrations that are dense with the colour and intrigue of nature. "Colourful statements of pure joie de vivre" our delighted client called them, and who are we to argue.

The work was used extensively across Bucherer's website and social media channels, and installed in store windows across Switzerland. At Malika's suggestion the series was animated too, bringing movement and life to a beautiful collection of vector illustrations.

A great brief and a lovely project. We hope they don't wait another eight years before getting back in touch.
