“This is a concept redesign of the soap packaging for The Bakewell Soap Company who produce, amongst other things, beautifully coloured blocks of handmade soap specially blended for different skin types. Sadly the existing packaging doesn’t live up to the quality of the product with a poor design and cheap printing.
The DZINE MAFIA packaging has brightened the pack giving a more solid brand feel, including a new simpler, more classic logo working alongside a slab-serif font in a handprinted finish. Bespoke illustrations sit top and bottom to help differentiate each variety, resulting in a gift or luxury treat with a more artisan and individual feel.”

“Batzner is an independent laboratory+perfuming house in Amsterdam providing the highest level of formulations for the luxury fragrance industry. Founded in 2001 by Markos Haan the lab has produced formulas both commercially and privately for clients worldwide. In opposition to organic trends and in Dutch fashion, Batzner touts, even brags about their ability at 100% synthetic reproduction. Underscoring this craft by formulating high concept fragrances such as lucite, ceran wrap and plasti-sheen.
I was apprached to develop a packaging system for their private clients which reflected their ideology regarding fragrance. “The future of fragrance, the future of our world is synthetic. The scarcity of resources and collapse of the traditional artisan is inevitible. Rather than skirt the subject we embrace it, taking it upon ourselves to stretch the imagination and create new methods of production in the post-industrial age.” -Markos Haan In packaging this idea I eliminated all text, branding the ‘M’ in M-System as a simple graphic element and rendering packaging material in matte acrylic for a synthetic feel which also becomes an iconic POP display.”
