This vegan lip balm comes in an array of brightly coloured oval shaped tubes, designed to stop the product from escaping from your back jeans pocket like round tubes tend to. An added benefit is the oval shape of the balm allows a more precise application on the lips. The tubes are made of #5 recyclable plastic, and if you buy three, they come to you in a reusable unbleached cotton tea bag stamped with the Hurraw! mark using a food-safe, permanent dye.

“After the gates close and all is quiet on the midway, Madame S. retires to her wagon and spends her evenings sewing, crafting and making soap for the rest of the performers.
But what does a bearded lady know about hygiene? Plenty. After a hard day of displaying her petit goatee, the madame loves nothing more than to climb into her clawfoot tub with a tall glass of whiskey and a clove cigarette. Then, naturally, she emerges to brush her face one hundred times on each side. Fine grooming is what Madame S. is all about.”

“Perfume packaging design and the concept of the perfume were always our dream project. So we took men’s fragrance as our challenge. At the begining we were concentrating on the idea of the scent itself. We found inspiration in the great, dark literature and distinctive, strong characters. We tried to describe the dark sides of men’s nature with line of scents named after famous writers. We packed the scents into bottles which resemble both old glass perfume bottles and the classic shape of the inkwell. We made them white, added black strong lettering and heads of characters which loosely recall
autor’s famous masterpieces.”

“The main idea of this project was to create a pack that communicates an expression that describes an action or a pick up line. The expressions communicates directly to costumer inviting to experience something new. The lettering its created from the basic typography KAUTIVA and interacts with the pack, giving a modern and unique style. The abstract shapes and images evokes hair style mixed with the facial expression of the person. This product will target young people looking for a different hairstyle. It will will be printed on matte metallic containers. The limitations on this project was not to change the containers and the main name of the Brand (HAIRCARE).”

Recent Penn State graduate Lainey Lee sent in some of her packaging design work.
“Chroma is a cosmetics brand that is known for their extensive selection of lipstick shades. The design of this bag was inspired by the form of a tube of lipstick. When the bag is not being held, the handle is hidden inside the bag. Then, when the bag is picked up, the handle lifts up and mimics the movement of lipstick lifting out of its tube.”

The design of the Kjaer Weis cosmetics line distills the fundamentals of women’s makeup to its three essential areas of application: lips, cheeks and eyes.
The compacts are shaped to mirror the features they will be used to enhance: slim and long for the lips, large and square for the cheeks, small and round for the eyes. Aesthetically, the Kjaer Weis line fuses an understated and timeless classicism with the crisp minimal lines of modern jewelry.

Fragrance box and bottle design is a rare opportunity for designers to be able to omit practically all information normally found on the packaging of a product, as standards for fragrances differ in that ingredients and other information can be listed inside perfume boxes, in booklets and leaflets. These porcelain bottles by Joya are a lovely example of a minimalistic approach which takes full advantage of this allowance.

“Instead of using unnecessary packaging we wrapped the product in a muslin cloth which doubles up as a flannel to clean/dry your hands. The product information is displayed on a small, neat label (front/back) around the neck of the jar.”
