“The Thymes Ambersweet Orange fragrance line is a wholesome blend of orange blossom, yogurt, and humectant honey. The color choice echoes the product’s warm, enveloping quality while the illustrations convey the sweetness of orange blossoms and honey.”

“A concept series for vitamin packaging. My emphasis was on the typography and the objective was to encourage the viewer to interact with the object. When sitting on a store shelf only a piece of the larger image is visible to the viewer — a move that is intended to pique the viewer’s curiosity enough to handle the package.”

“Naia is a clean, crisp fragrance that activates the senses. The packaging highlights the fresh simplicity of the products by wrapping them in illustrations of translucent leaves and splashes of water.”

“These are mock-ups for a packaging concept i came up with for a rebranding project we had during “character design” class. For my project i chose to rebrand “MEM”, which is a shaving cream brand consumed mostly by older men and even older barbers.
The general concept was the simple and traditional “be a man” vibe all shaving products seem to go by, but i chose a different kind of “man”, the ol’ fashioned yet young and hip kind. so throughout the whole procces i tried to keep an “old times-vintage” feel going, while lightening things up with proud and silly tales of simple manly insight.”

“We wanted to take away the embarrassment factor of the whole depils sector, which seems to be generally treated the same as SanPro in its styling. We have focused on the beautiful natural body, using high contrast black and white photography that has a sheen effect, emphasising the smooth skin and evoking the emotion of someone being at one and relaxed with the whole situation. The close up black and white editorial photographic style to empower and inspire the purchaser, not make her feel like a ‘bloke’ that needs a shave or a ‘hairy old witch’. The high contrast images use relevant parts of the body to help communicate which product to use and the coloured band at the top helps differentiate further.”

“The name Gessato describes the chalk-stripe suiting fabric that sets the tone for the products and packaging inside and out, and refers to the traditional elegance of contemporary Italian aesthetics and culture.
The noble lions af Italian royalty, a symbol of richness and strength, the naturally stark silver and white palette, symbols of peace, serenity and well being; and the Latin motto, “providentiae memor” (with gratitude for divine guidance) converge to outwardly represent the essence of Gessato’s products.”

“The Superdrug Nappies range is a part of the overall baby range, design update that burst did this year. It is carried across nappies, toiletries, wipes and accessories. We chose a bold iconic graphic animal theme to work across the range, reminiscent of children’s board books to engage both mother and child. The simplified iconic animals images help identify the products on shelf and aid partners and family when purchasing i.e. “The red elephant pack”. And the large bold use of type for the age also helps identify which product to select. The packs simplicity is far removed from the chaotic graphic mess that dominates the nappy sector.”
