“The collection of mass-market fragrances COMOTÚ, designed for Mercadona, was aimed to be a simple product, in harmony with its price, but with a surprising presentation. In order to achieve a good brand image and minimize the costs of production, only one bottle design was used for the eight different fragrances, four in black for men and four in white for women. The distinct fragrances can be differentiated thanks to the different colours of their tops.
The shape of the bottle is rounded and curved, and the packages show shiny and metallic colours.
The final design both of the bottle and its package has the gift to transmit high quality and modernity at a competitive price. It proves that a mass-market product with a good design can be very successful.”

“I saw this project from beginning to end. From carving molds for the soap shape to choosing the perfect scents, Adam & Eve Soap was born. When my professor jokingly mentioned creating a his and hers soap for some sexy bath time fun, the idea was planted. This soap would be sold near Valentine’s Day and would be promoted as a gift soap. The man buys it for his leading lady, and both of them get a little something out of it (if you catch my drift). I even went as far as to choose scents that are known to be aphrodisiacs. It’s a soft approach into the intimate world.”

Print Mag will be doing a live webcast next week (August 4th) with the owner and designer at Pangea Organics. They’ll be talking about how they made the boxes for their gift sets which are 100 percent biodegradable, and have Blue Spruce seeds embedded in it, so you can plant it and grow a tree.
The Pangea guys will also be giving constructive advice to packaging designers looking for tips on making sustainable packaging.

“This boutique getaway focuses on personalized customer experiences, so overall branding and touchpoints create a refreshing, zen-like feel. Inspiration for the logo came from traditional seals used as signatures in Asian cultures. Packaging for the salon+spa incorporated clean lines, repeating patterns and fun usage of bamboo in unexpected places.”

“The challenge behind Beautea was to develop a line that reflected the earthy naturalness of an Organic Bath & Body line and feminity of the packaging since women were the prime consumers of this type of product. Also, since it is a bodycare line infused with Tea it was very important that the packaging reflect this and not mistaken for “drinking tea”. Inner packaging was sourced throughout the world and reflects the “cleanness” of a natural, organic line. Natural Fragrances developed by our Perfumeur in Grasse, France. All organic ingredients were sourced from Organic certified farms mostly in California. All organic tea extracts were sourced in Arizona through a specialized Tea importer. It was essential that the logo with the tea pot be sticking and reflected the ingredients inside the product… tea.”

“There’s something rather regal about the mangosteen fruit. Maybe it’s the deep color of the rind, or the pure white fruit it holds, or the density of its nutrients. Whatever it is, it’s worth capturing. Which is what we’ve done in the packaging for XanGo’s latest product, a multi-use serum made from all the goodness of the mangosteen. Traditional patterns speak to its origins, and hand treated type and brush stroke textures speak to natural organic beauty. The slide box reveals a product as unique as its custom die line.”
