Designing and Producing the best possible personalized product out there!
What we believe:
At Rust Designs, we design our products with our customers in mind.
We know they want to give and receive gifts that are special, gifts
that say something personal, gifts that turn into heirlooms, gifts that
they can't wait to give. All of our products are personalizable, to
make them as unique as the people giving them. They are also
made of the highest quality porcelain and are dishwasher and
microwave safe, so the messages they convey won’t fade away.
We believe that designing products that won’t simply be temporary
visitors in our lives is the right thing to do, as it cuts down on
consumer waste. That’s important to us; just as we are committed
to producing products that are beautiful and enduring, we’re
also committed to doing that in a responsible manner, with as little
impact on the environment as possible. Our products are
packaged with 100% recyclable material, so that even the packing
need not end up in a landfill.
Who we are:
Jessica Rust is the founder and principle designer of Rust Designs.
Her signature style – whimsical, hand drawn designs inspired by
nature - has made her dinnerware designs some of the most
sought-after and recognizable in the industry.
After a childhood spent under the overcast skies of Cleveland, Ohio,
at 18 Jessica relocated to the sunnier, warmer climes of Los Angeles
to study at Parson’s School of Design. After a year in the sun, she
transferred to Parsons’ New York City campus, where she completed
her degree in Product Design. In the years since leaving Parsons,
Jessica has worked for companies as familiar and nearby as Ralph
Lauren and as far-flung as the Turkish textile firm Yatas. She’s had
the opportunity to live in New York, Paris, San Francisco and
Minneapolis. Now, she’s back in Los Angeles once more.
Jessica and her designs have been featured in numerous publications,
including but not limited to, Real Simple, O at Home, Country Living,
Design*Sponge, and Daily Candy. Rust Design was also a featured on
the Today Show.
