Pompei AD. LLC :
Authenticity. Relevance. Intimacy.
'We approach every project with a beginner’s mind. A clean slate without predetermined possibilities. Simply put, we transform brands by designing immersive environments through the integration of C3: Commerce, Culture & Community™.'
At Pompei, I led the Anthropologie Team as Art Director and Project Manager, working closely with the team of architects on store layout, exterior finishes and appearance, fixture design, special wall finish design i.e plaster, wallpaper, etc- each Anthropologie store has over 40 special wall finishes. After design presentation to CEO every two weeks, I oversaw design and completion of each store, including onsite QC trips.
At Pompei, I created the studio materials library, as well as the visual image library (before Pinterest!). I also worked on many branding project for companies such as Urban Outfitters Inc, Old Navy, Mavi Jeans, Seeds, Sigrid Olsen and more.
For each store, I worked with our team of architects to create interior and exterior layout. I chose materials and finishes for fixtures. For the 40+ special wall finishes, I created a library of special finishes, working closely with the 2 companies who fabricated them onsite. We did a round of sampling, presented to client. The special buyer for Anthropologie would travel the world and send me images of pieces (for example a stable from Belgium or Pharmacy from Paris) that I would need to design into an upcoming store.
I would then create a Special Finish Book, and do various QC visits to each store until completion. I also worked closely with the Anthropologie Visual Merchandising team to ensure integrated language in each store.
