“The fragrance is inspired by the Fusako Shigenobu, former leader of the Japanese Red Army, who was believed to be in exile in Lebanon for many years after orchestrating some of the group’s most political statements. Yi and Peng have chosen cedar wood as a central theme of this fragrance’s narrative, as cedar is highly regarded in Lebanon as a national emblem. The scent us
es three different kinds of cedar wood as its base note, along with violet leaf and nutty heart notes, and top notes of yuzu, shiso leaf, and black pepper. The packaging for this hand-distilled fragrance is made of raw cedar wood, each bottle uniquely (and painstakingly) hand-cut by the creators in architectural geometry, encasing a 10ml glass bottle of liquid within.”

“Authenticity is the guiding principle in all of Lather Bee Rich’s creations. Ingredients are all natural, not synthesized or chemical. No newfangled soap experimentation is being performed in the soap’s manufacture.Instead the soap is made using authentic recipes from the 1920. For each of the six scents, names and photos of Lather Bee Rich’s actual ancestors were incorporated. Blazing Betty, Corky’s Cute Patoote, Dapper Dan, Dollface Darla, Lusty Lu-Lu and Papa Bob were authentic people with stories to tell and foibles to enjoy.

“The project involved a creation of a skincare line for an existing company, non-affiliated with skin products. I chose Nooka because of the idea of re-conceptualizing the current world we live in. The result is a reinvention of designing bottles that are functional for the urban cities most of the consumers live in. Bottles, although functional, need to be transportable/ and why shouldn’t they be wearable? On top of that, they must have purpose. I wanted to break the traditional rules of what skincare products are, and began to design what they should be.

Paula Scher (partner-in-charge and designer) and Lisa Kitschenberg (designer) have redesigned the identity and packaging for renu® multi-purpose solution, one of Bausch + Lomb’s signature products and the category leader in contact lens solutions. The renu® identity and packaging have been designed to stand apart from the competition in the category, which includes brands from manufacturers like Alcon, Allergan, Johnson & Johnson and Ciba Vision. The packaging of all these brands uses colors of blue and green and motifs of waves, curves and circles (or bubbles) to allude to water, liquid and moisture. The new renu® packaging drops the allusion and uses an actual photograph of a wave of water that wraps around the package.

“This is a concept for a “RePackaging” assignment in which I chose to repackage bras. The packaging was inspired by a KBG commercial in which a young man asks how to tell his girlfriend’s breast size. The answer was to simply relate them to a piece of fruit: “Are they apples, oranges, or grapefruits?”
I thought it was a hilariously cute ad and decided to create a line of bras whose packaging corresponded with the appropriate fruit sizes. A cups are apples and B cups are oranges and etc. Since the concept was very “fruity” in nature, the dingy hangers that lingerie normally came with seemed no longer appropriate as I wanted something light and playful.”
