“The assignment was Diablo Salsa and Tortilla packaging, and it had to have a Mexican feel. I decided to use Catholicism in Mexico for inspiration, and found some Patron Saint candles to work off of. This is the final product.”

“Packaging for proposed artisan bread store, Motherloaf, derived from the bread recipe of the same name, but brought up connotations of the rough and tumble gold rush era of the mid-1800s in the US. With that idea in mind, the packaging shape referenced gold bullion bars, and I wanted all imagery to have a rough, lithographic feel of the printing processes of the era.”

“Abella is fine artisan honey produced and estate bottled in Galicia, a naturally and historically rich region of northwestern Spain. “Abella” means bee in Gallego, the language spoken in Galicia, and the name is a tribute to these remarkable creatures and the healthy delicacies they produce. The products consist of 100% pure, raw, unfiltered honey created by master beekeepers using age-old techniques. Every drop is a work of art.
The packaging of Abella’s specialty honey line, featuring honey with royal jelly, pollen and propolis, was designed to create an identity for the company and capture the rural, artisan character of the product in a refined, elegant and streamlined manner. The free-form, beveled effect of the jars, from Bruni Glass of Italy, is a natural fit, while the label design makes a simple yet powerful statement.”

“Artist Edition Clif Bar: The goal was to create a limited artist edition Clif Bars for two of the flavors. As seen by “Cool Mint Chocolate” and “Cranberry Apple Cherry” flavors, the color palette reflects on the flavors. The concept was to show ordinary animals doing extraordinary things with the help of Clif Bars.”

“Honey & Mackie’s is a ice cream shop for kids that caters to parents. The name of the establishment comes from the nicknames of the owners children. Thus, the branding & packaging needed to be modern, authentic & kid fun. In addition, the ingredients in their ice cream creations are all natural, organic and locally grown.”

Heavily inspired by chemical elements, we love this unique packaging spin on honey which moves away from the traditional imagery associated with the product and goes in a bold new direction.

“This package, specially designed to hold a platu and a bottle of gourmet olive oil, is called platu(a). In the word “platu(a)”, the parenthesis (a) hold sthe azeite (the Portuguese word for olive oil), just like the package does. The launch of this package is intended to reinforce the platu’s functional essence – it is not only an exclusive design piece, but also a useful everyday object. The olive oil inside the platu(a) package is carefully selected, and each edition is limited to the stock of the chosen olive oil.”
