From Flat to Fabulous and AI’s Visual Leap in Luxury Branding with David Yurman



In the midst of a vibrant summer, House of Indovina embarked on a unique creative endeavor. Our clients, David Yurman, were drawn to a series of reference images with a unique aesthetic – monochromatic, shadow-softened, and suggesting paper embossment. The challenge was evident: the original space lacked depth, and our task was to inject it with a new dimensionality, something far from the flatness it presented.

Traditionally, this would have been a lengthy journey: designing compositions, painstakingly building and texturing these visions in 3D software, followed by a meticulous color and mood setting in Photoshop. This process, though fulfilling, would have stretched over weeks.

However, this time, we turned to AI for assistance, a decision that marked a shift in our creative process. With a few well-chosen words, we guided the AI to help us conceive this new visual aesthetic. The experience was a dance of sorts – at times, the AI captured our vision perfectly, while at other moments, it seemed cautious, almost playing it safe by creating paper worlds without the embossed texture we sought. This journey was not just about creating art but also about learning – finding that sweet spot of innovative vision without losing sight of what felt “right.”


The collaboration with AI led us to a place of creative introspection. It was a balancing act between the boldness of our younger selves and the mature understanding of our artistic limits. The result was a series of base plates that opened up new avenues for creative discussion, helping us envision the potential of these newly imagined worlds. This experience reaffirmed our belief in the power of blending traditional artistry with emerging technologies like AI. Each step in this journey, each challenge we faced, was an opportunity to grow and envision the future of visual storytelling, a future where AI is not just a tool but a partner in the creative process.
