“The greatest challenge was to develop a new product focused on mass market for the new Brazilian consumers, offering a high-quality product but affordable cost . To achieve that results, low price, highly attractive and environmentally responsible products would be necessary. More than a classic design process, an innovation by design approach was applied. The creative team participated in all areas of the process. The naming, the packaging, formulation, business model, distribution, manufacturing, etc.
A collaborative project with the participation of all stake holders, testing several scenarios virtually and physically. Financial analysis and environmental impact were used while mockups and new tests were performed. Market researches was conducted to identify trends of habits and usage of our target consumer in parallel with trips looking forward to new production technologies.”

“Our client provided us with his logo, which included simple, elegant writing and an old-fashioned key. We decided to build on it: for the series of the “White Key” cosmetics we created a coat of arms with two keys, the company initials, place and year of company origin. Modern writing specified the use of each product and balanced atmosphere with practicality. The white bottles we chose for the whole line are referencing the old, precious, porcelain containers, which were used in pharmacies and exclusive beauty parlors during late 19th and early 20th c. Products include shampoos and conditioners, body wash and body cream and a special men’s and children’s line. A colorful, funky coat of arms along the same principles, was created for the kids line, so as to accentuate the particular care provided to each and every company client.”

“Dynoptic is a network of opticians in Switzerland, offering a collection of contact lenses and lens care products. Dynoptic’s packaging distinguishes itself through its uniquely simple design and its black background, which clearly sets it apart from the design of its competitors. The coloured numbering system on products enables customers and opticians alike to quickly recognise the products, as every colour represents a specific purpose. A green number indicates “All-in-One” products, a red number denotes products which should be handled with care and a blue number stands for products which can be used to quickly clean contact lenses on the go. The font “CoHeadline” by Dalton Maag was chosen, as it appeals to both sexes with its use of corners and curves. The Dynawell suite of eye care products was designed using the same concept. The colour scheme for Dynawell products, however, is a blue background and white numbers.”

“For this project the client asked me to create an affordable package where you could see, and smell the product. It also needed to be easy to package by hand and original.
In the small town in Mexico where I grew up, people would buy soap in bulk which was delivered wrapped in paper. I used this as inspiration and created a square, waxed paper wrapper. An oval die cut was added to allow the consumer to see and smell the product.”

“These wine packages were designed as an interactive way for the consumer to try an assortment of wines. The One Week Wine Sample sets helps consumers get over bad days (job loss, failed exam, fender bender) or to celebrate good ones (birthdays, a raise, new house). The word fill-in lets people express themselves and transforms the package into an engaging experience.
Whether consumed by one person over a week, or shared one night with a few friends, these 1/2 litre wine boxes are perfectly proportioned for any day good or bad.”

“Hudson Made’s line of handmade, small batch Beard & Shave Soaps is designed for the bearded man and his clean-shaven brother. These multi-purpose 3.5 oz. discs generate a lather that acts as both a gentle beard shampoo and an exceptional shaving cream.
The Beard & Shave Soap is available in three varieties—Original White, Cedar Clove, and Citron Neroli—each with a distinctive aroma. The personality of these three distinct soaps is conveyed through rich color. Unifying the packaging for the line is bold typography, which strikes a balance between contemporary simplicity and the heritage implied by nineteenth-century design.
The boxes were produced using traditional printing and letterpress typography on sustainable paper. Hudson Made’s packaging is manufactured locally and meticulously selected for a truly regional product.”
