“I recently did work for a start-up company in downtown Manhattan. They were on a very tight budget and needing everything to be printed from their standard 8.5×11 printer. One particular challenge of branding them was the packaging for their line of teas. They had over 20 teas, 6 varieties, each with their own unique description, health benefits, and brewing instructions. Needless to say, it was a fun challenge in real-world information design applied to packaging. I was able to arrange all of the necessary information on single labels which they adhered to the stock bags they had. The labels were small enough to fit two per standard letter size paper- saving not only money, but also paper.”

“We designed a completely new look for Schroeder, one that communicated on three levels. The first level is a clean, white opaque package that communicated a European sophistication. The next level is the use of the words One, Two, Whole, and Skim each scaled reflect the fat level of the milk, The last is the use of rotating, esoteric phrases that spoke to consumers in an anti-marketing language. Phrases like for dreamers and optimists and for those who fall somewhere in between. The early results speak for themselves. Schroeder saw a sustained 15% increase in distribution due to their new packaging and 22% increase in sales of milk during a recessionary economy.”

The cows which produce this milk are free to roam an unused forest all year round. The milk is supposed to taste better, the theory being that happy cows produce better milk. We like the way the tree graphic reflects the typography as well as the simple yet charming addition of tissue paper covering the bottle cap. Nominated for a Japanese 2009 Good Design Award.

Packaging for the Aviara AM/PM health drinks was designed by Axis41 in Salt Lake City. Aviara is a San Diego-based nutrition company that developed the AM and PM beverage system to help promote a healthy and vibrant life. The AM drink helps to boost energy levels at the start of the day. The PM drink helps to calm and soothe the nerves at the end of the day.
The flowers represent the botanicals that make up the formulation of these two drinks. Growing plants and flowers communicate health, which is exactly what these drinks promote. The bold, clean typography contrasts with the illustrated style of the flowers and helps to convey a sense of health and purpose. The designs were silk screened ink on frosted glass, allowing the color of each drink to become the color of the packaging.

As far as we’re aware, this is only a concept at the moment. As the tea infuses, the bird unfurls, which is the part we’re really impressed with.

“We supported Holmegaard in developing a new brand strategy celebrating the legacy without letting the past define the brand. The pivot point was taken from brand surveys and internal interviews. It was clear that the brand should target a younger audience. A new strategy was needed to project the strong, emotional quality and Nordic design values present in the products. Therefore, the key objective was to transform an old fashioned brand and to grasp the sparkle in the products. To turn an occasional usage of the products to an everyday experience without losing the high-end design and quality feeling.”
