Sealed 

Signed, sealed & delivered. The Sealed stationery shop allows for people to learn how to create wax seals and practice hand-lettering. The space is designed to have people come in and take workshop courses surrounded with experts and others trying it for the first time. The older practices are becoming the "new" trend and a welcoming and accessible environment would help people discover a new hobby.

DESIGN APPROACH & PROCESS

The idea of designing a custom wax seal stemmed from a painting that uses a crystal/wax like texture to enhance the three-dimensional feel of the painting. Wax seals were used for formal documents in the middle ages and became popular during the 13th century. The idea of bringing back a practice that started centuries ago allows us to modernize them and emphasize the purpose of it.  The Logo/Mark Design is hand written with a circle brushstroke seal surrounding it to replicate a seal like design. The hand written concept represents the brand identity and the values that it stands for.

ENTRANCE - INTERIOR SPACE

 

I wanted to create an experience for the individuals as they enter the space. As the individual walks into the shop there is an array of stationery items displayed. The second half of the interior is dedicated to wax seals and hand-lettering. 

WAX SEAL ROOM - INTERIOR SPACE

 

The custom wax seal room is designed as a studio, the individuals bring in their design and have the metal engraving created and choose a handle. Then, they move on to the wax color for the seal. After, they will heat the wax and stamp the wax with the metal engraving. There is a mailbox placed in the room as well, to deliver their mail.

The hand lettering room is designed to be comfortable and inviting, anyone and everyone is welcome to come and learn.

The rug and the chairs have a theme of blue, which is a color that promotes a relaxed environment.
