“Inspired by vintage soap packaging, Spinster Sisters Co. approached me to design a unique, tactile box with a handcrafted feel that would allow the product to be seen, and the scent experienced. These small batch handmade soaps are produced with the finest natural ingredients. Rich with essential oils and botanicals, the products are gentle, sulfate free, pthalate free, and hypoallergenic.”

“We created the AROMA brand for an extensive range of Greek personal care products available in supermarkets. The range takes its name from the natural scented essential oils and other select organic ingredients contained in the products. (‘aroma’ in Greek being the word for perfume, scent or fragrance).
Our main concern was to differentiate the range from the competition on long shelves displaying this class of product in supermarkets. This is the reason why we avoided realist illustrations of fruits or water splashes.
For each of the three AROMA lines, we chose stylized, abstract depictions of the two main ingredients: olive leaves dancing with balsam flowers, bay leaves and golden sesame oil, and milk and honey. The typography is sharp and black, an interesting counterpoint to the bright colour palette of the graphic design.”

“The Briefing (in brief): ”We believe that the existence of extremely specialized products within the cosmetics industry is an exercise on consumerism. We produce 4 types of products which can cover all skin care needs. We named the line “the basics”, and we want a packaging to communicate this.”
The target consumer: All ages. Consumers who prefer a modest and practical shopping approach.
The design: The idea of “the essential” behind the birth of this line is quite simple and comes from a pharmacist with a relevant experience. We used the same straightforward approach for the packaging: white bottles and a design referencing the essential. Our inspiration was the design structure and related function of the highly popular video arcade game, “Space Invaders” (released in 1978). Each of the 4 different bottles in our packaging carries a quasi recognizable shape modeled after an animal or other natural form. The elements forming each shape are the same, the basics, so to speak, but their different configuration creates a series of possibilities.”

“The Briefing (in brief): ”This is a valuable nutrition additive. We like a packaging which will make it distinguishable in a pharmacy environment.”
The target consumer: The product is dispensed by prescription and addresses people in need of vitamin based nutrition additives
The design: We opted for a design which would include a direct and rather sober reference to the very natural source of the product, a salmon fish. We chose the iconographical approach of a fish encyclopedia of the 18th or 19th c., simple, clear typography and the devise of the orange diagonal line to connect the packages when displayed.”

“Büro is a men’s cosmetics range made from natural, sustainable ingredients. Designed to be used on a daily basis and tailored to the individual needs of the consumer.
We created a new brand name, identity and packaging system that focused on the utility of Büro, removing the prettification and emotion that is more typically found in the branding of cosmetic and fragrance products. The use of unprocessed materials in the packaging helped to communicate the purity of the ingredients, thereby embodying its essence in our brand concept. Project is currently a prototype.”

“When I created the Brooklyn Grooming identity I got my inspiration from Victorian barber shops and nautical antiques. I wanted to reflect the “apothecary aesthetic” that recalls classic and timeless elegance that suggests a simpler time when grooming was paramount in our society to all men.”
