“Clean Lines is a new collection of soaps from Pop Ink sold in retail stores throughout the U.S. The packages are printed with two colors (metallic silver and brown), and rely on French Paper’s Pop-Tone stock to provide additional color and variety. The clean lines of the illustrations communicate the purity of the product.”

Designed by Jeff Krichmar | Country: United States
Atlanta-based designer Jeff Krichmar created this beautiful feminine care packaging while he was still a student a couple of years ago. We’re very impressed; it would be lovely to see this on the shelves instead of what’s out there now.

“Number 4 High Performance Hair Care was founded with the mission to create a hair care line that runs parallel to fashion, science, art, music and industrial design creative cycles. The Number 4 package design is inspired by the crossover between the essence of Swedish graphic design and the complex industrial minimalism of Japanese package design.”

Designed by Zoo Studio | Country: Spain
Simple, logo-driven packaging for a cosmetics company. The most beautiful piece in the collection has to be the wood-capped loose powder container, although there is a lot to be said for the bright white type paired with the matte black packaging (shown after the jump).

Designed by Artek & Comme Des Garçons | Country: Finland
The box, with its slightly textural grey silhouette feels stronger than the bottle itself. Both components strongly echo the work of furniture design shop Artek, who are based primarily in Finland but who have offices worldwide.
“The unisex fragrance was created in line with Artek STUDIO’s brief on combining synthetic and natural elements. The final scent was developed by Christian Astuguevieille, perfume creator at Comme des Garçons. The result is a blend of Finnish Labrador Tea, Twinflower Linnea Borealis, metal and rust in the base notes and fennel, ginger, lemon, musk, saffron and cedarwood in the top notes. The visual aesthetics of the STANDARD fragrance were developed to stand along with Artek’s ideology and existing products. In line with Artek’s design ideology, the scent is created with the ambition to nourish physical and emotional wellbeing.”
