“Brief: Create a sophisticated identity and packaging that reflect The Bitter Chocolatier’s luxury offering and ironic humour.
Solution: The brand has an edge. The elegant look contrasts sharply with its ironic humour. Poking fun at himself, The Bitter Chocolatier tells his tales of misfortune throughout his life through the different flavours. The product differentiates itself from other brands while entertaining the consumer.”

“This assignment was to create a game called Tower of Babble which is a building block game for a language of our choice. I decided to choose Basic Korean for children ages 1-2 that requires them to put these blocks together to form an image. Once it is done, you flip the game pieces to find the corresponding word in Korean and the English translation. I chose to illustrate kid-friendly illustrations and chose a color palette that references the Korean flag.”

“Record cover for the debut 12″ vinyl EP of my personal electronic music project, AER20-200. The aim was to create an interesting, unique and catchy package, which would also be in line with the style of the music.
In this design, the cover consists of an outer sleeve made of white cardboard and an inner sleeve made of red paper. On the outer sleeve, all of the text, such as the names of the artist and the tracks is written by cutting out letter with a laser allowing the red inner sleeve to show through. There’s nothing printed on the outer cover itself – it’s pure white. As is the actual record. Only small engravings near the blank white center label tell which side of the record is which. The music itself is electronic and falls between styles such as glitch, idm, noise and techno. The machine made nature of the album is represented in the simplistic and almost mathematically precise form of the cover.”

“The brief: To create an identity for a line of vitamins sold in upmarket health food stores and organic markets. Design a logo and packaging.
The solution:The wordmark’s hand-cut feel, paired with modern typography communicates quality. Deckle-edged labels with die cuts reveal the contents of the bottles. The warm brown of the bottles adds a nostalgic touch while protecting the contents from the sunlight.”

“Problem: How do you put the history of jazz in a box? Not an easy task, but one Smithsonian Folkways Recordings was eager to take on. Using the historic compilation The Smithsonian Collection of Classic Jazz as the starting point, a team of over 50 experts set about selecting 111 tracks tracing 100 years of jazz. In addition to the music, the set need to include liner notes by 30 leading writers and a treasury or rarely-seen jazz photographs.
Solution: Visual Dialogue referenced the graphics and color palette of original Folkways JAZZ LP covers in creating an entirely new design for Jazz: The Smithsonian Anthology. The package combines a 200-page book and 6 CDs inside a translucent slipcase, befitting what Time magazine reviewed as “the single best introduction to America’s great musical form.”
