Designed by The Jupiter Drawing Room | Country: South Africa
“As music retailers face increasing pressure to find alternative revenue streams beyond the sales of CDs and DVDs, the opportunities have to lie in lifestyle products. Inside of everyone of us is an alter-ego who secretly wants to be a rock star, pop icon or jazz supremo. This was identified by The Jupiter Drawing Room (Cape Town) with our latest range of work executed for client Musica.
Conceptualised, illustrated and designed by the Design department of Jupiter; the packaging, in-store product stand as well as the writing of the copy communicates the in-your-face, anti-establishment rebelliousness of Rock music. And lets the user believe just for a moment they really could be a rock icon.”

This bottle designed by H5 for Magnifique almost looks like silk curtains. I’m interested to know whether it’s all visual or if there is a tactile feel to the bottle as well.

“Sonia Cheadle has established a reputation for luxurious and innovative contemporary diamond jewellery. The packaging was designed to help display the work at shows such as London’s Goldsmiths Fair, and as a gift-box for Cheadle’s discerning clients.
The varnished grid gives the box movement as light passes over the box. Seductive despite its comparatively modest materials, the box also hints at its valuable contents.
The brand name is only on the inside of the sleeve – visible to anyone opening the box, but otherwise hidden, allowing the box to retain its enigmatic qualities.”
