Established in 2005, Mark and Tracy Watson founded jewellery brand Designsix London. Inspired by their travels through Indonesia. With backgrounds in contemporary design, Mark and Tracy began working with natural materials including leather, seed bead and wood to create a range of jewellery.
As the company thrived in the UK, Designsix embarked on launching the brand in Tokyo where they maintain an impressive customer following. Now a recognized brand within the UK and abroad they supply major museums and high street chains from the Natural History Museum, the V&A and Museum of Modern Art Tokyo.
In 2010, Designsix began to incorporate metal, glass, acrylic and stone into their product range and subsequently opened a factory in China. Their innovative approach to the design process has enabled them create a diverse and distinctive collection that is in keeping with their core products from Indonesia; the heart of the brand. All products are designed at their London based studio.
In the last 2 years, Designsix have established a successful design development agency for major high street brands. Their most current partnership with ASOS.com has been a stimulating experience for Deisgnsix who are now looking forward to launching their very first product range for men, exclusive to ASOS Menswear.
The challenge for the PR agency has been to gain coverage in the more high end fashion and lifestyle titles. The in house team had no clear PR strategy and coverage was random and mostly in trade titles. Rose Tinted PR is working with the designers to build profile for themselves , make the brand more aspirational and deliver quality media coverage. Recently Design Six pieces have been featured in Vogue, Japanese Elle and Gok Wan’s TV shows.
