“Collectively 8 people were involved in the production of these boxes. Main contributors included a carpenter, digital printers, a wood routing specialist, engravers and myself. All of the contributors were supplied with concise instructions and illustrations, with a focus on their area of the process. It was important that certain stages of the construction were done prior to assemblage, for instance; the branding cut out and engraving on the bottom end of the box had to be completed before the panels were put together, otherwise the box wouldn’t fit into the engraving bed. Likewise the sanding of the boxes happened before engraving so the marks were not stripped.
The similar tones of the corrugated card and pine complement each other while the high gloss of the acrylic band emphasizes the elegance of the brands expensive nature. The logos symbol is a stylization of the upper leg in profile, starting from knee joint and finishing at the Gluteus Maximus. The name ‘one percent’ references two topics, the first meaning; when exercising our body perspiration is made up of 99% water and 1% solute. Secondly ‘once percent’ represents exclusivity, targeting the brands high end audience. RBNo3.1 was the selected typeface. Its highly geometric form grounds the logo while movement is created when italic.”

“To celebrate 4 years of Ugmonk we created a special Limited Edition 4th Anniversary Set featuring a custom designed number 4. There are only 200 of these sets ever made. The 4th Anniversary Tee features a soft water-based print on black 100% ringspun cotton tee and is carefully packaged in a custom flexible birch wood cylinder that is laser-engraved with the 4th anniversary seal.
When you fold back the flexible closure on this unique packaging, you’ll find the shirt accompanied by a numbered, solid wood letterpress block featuring the Ugmonk Anniversary “4.” These blocks were custom cut from Ginkgo wood that was reclaimed from a local estate. You can read the whole story about the wood here.
The final piece of the set is a collector’s card that I personally signed and hand-stamped with one of the letterpress blocks.”

“Early proto-types for some packaging I’ve been developing with industrial designer Annie Lennon for our expanding tech accessories line. This was the first pass from the manufacturer, still a work in progress (we were about half-way through our brand identity redesign when we were working on this initial pass, palette and logo treatment wasn’t quite there yet).”

“Corresponding with an overall re-design of all of our retail store branded print collateral, I concepted and directed the design of two shoe packaging initiatives. The first was the redesign of our standard shoe-box to be more eye catching and brand correct, with subtle but clever copy and a drive to our online presence. The second was the design of specialty packaging for our most popular shoe, a thin ballet flat that is packaged, shipped and displayed in the store in an elegant tube, protected by a soft muslin bag with a grosgrain ribbon detail.”

“Brokula&Ž (Broccoli&Z) is a clothingbrand by Bruketa&Žinić OM, made from organically grown materials. With Brokula&Ž, everything good comes from within so all the clothing contains hidden messages written on the inside that can be seen only by you… and whoever undresses you. The messages are actually funny dialogs between Brokula (Broccoli) and Ž (a bird) who are the main characters of the product’s visual identity. Like the products themselves, the packaging is also eco-friendly. The inks have ecological certificates, and the paper is recycled. Furthermore, the packaging is designed as a cup that you can use for something else after unpacking your purchase.
The packaging had to be as eco-friendly as possible. The biggest challenge was to design the packaging that’s easy to assemble but without any glue and plastic, which at the same time serves as a fun giftwrap and a practical protection of the product. Also we had to find a recycled paper that’s good enough in terms of quality and durability, and the colors with eco-certificates.”
