Illamasqua - makeup for your alter ego
Today, hailed as the fastest growing make-up brand in history by Vogue, Illamasqua has become a cult British fashion icon across the globe, recognized by Vogue, trading in 6 markets through over 300 doors. And its top team – including make-up artist and creative director Alex Box – challenges the status quo through creative imagery that tests the homogenised nature of the beauty industry.
Heritage
Illamasqua is the product of a heady mix of influences; from its roots in the dark and illicit 1920s Berlin club scene, to a rich heritage in the manufacture of make-up for film and theatre, to inspiration taken from members of the ‘alternative scenes’ for whom self-expression is paramount, to the ‘night-time diva’ on the high street who explores her alter ego on a night out.
Building an icon
Curventa created from scratch an iconic design language for the brand, building upon the rich heritage of the make-up manufacturers and their consumers. The end result is a confident, mature, premium product line-up that extends into several ‘alter-ego’s’  whilst maintaining the brand values and promise.
Illamasqua is now a fast expanding global business, with a market leading reputation and portfolio of products.
Illamasqua’s global rollout

·         8 department store concessions in the UK, including Selfridges, Oxford Street.
·         500 Sephora stores in the US

Barcelona Telephone
Barcelona Dect Telephone. Most technology we own has little empathy for the environment that it lives in. This is very true for home telephones, and so Curventa started an internal work program to see what would happen if we took an existing Dect handset and created a product inspired by fashion, architecture and furniture. Barcelona is the result !
