Concept / Auger + Ore is the first iteration of Totem. It is a collection of home goods and jewelry, inspired by nature & folk art, available online and in select shops in San Francisco.
Background / A+O started as a packaging and identity project and grew into a cohesive brand over the course of two years. The goal was to create a brand of high quality goods that reflect a lifestyle of voluntary simplicity and a respect for the natural world. Auger + Ore has served as an outlet for me to explore an interest in brand development, product and packaging design as well as others interests like ceramics, weaving, and beekeeping.
