“Packaging and graphic design of sun-care range, sold in Mercadona supermarkets. The project had a very demanding brief to optimize processes and costs, without sacrificing that the product communicates quality, is attractive and has a strong presence on the shelf. For the 36 references we designed two bottles. These two packs support different lids and different dosing mechanisms: pumps, sprays, disc-top… and also the design gives an effective response to the two objectives of the project: on one hand, solve problems of logistics and production; on the other, with only two packages, obtain a highly differentiated range of products, with its own personality. The colors of the containers provide the necessary differentiation between the sub-ranges of products: sunscreen, tanning, aftersun… The graphics serve as a rapid and clear identification of each one of them. This is achieved by the prominent and powerful presence of a numeral that indicates the protection factor, a key element in the purchase decision, and that at the same time strengthens the personality of the range.”

“For this conceptual project, students were to chose a pre-existing and well-known brand and develop a line of skin care products. The key factor in deciding upon a brand was that it was not currently affiliated with a skin care line of products. The challenge was then to maintain equity within the brand and translate that into skin care.
Altoids has always been a product meant for a mass audience of both men and women. As a largely popular breath mint in the United States, the mint product is slightly more expensive than the average breath mint price. In maintaining such characteristics, Curious is a skin care product that is clinically proven to cleanse and refresh the skin. The product is meant for both men and women and offers skin care products that clean, treat, and sooth the skin.”

“Poly was enlisted to evolve the Stark Skincare brand into labels for their inaugural skincare line. Stark wanted packaging that distinguished itself, which meant boldly displaying ingredients and production details as well as being visually striking. This series was an absolute blast to work on – a great opportunity to create an interesting play between our artwork, vivid colours and a quasi-scientific ‘elemental’ layout.
Stark Skincare was created in 2011, as a reaction to greenwashed and conventional skincare products. Stark uses 100% all-natural ingredients to create products made specifically for city life.”

“Inspired by the old world utilitarian ideal of making something that is “built to last,” Izola and Aesthetic Movement have curated a collection of whimsical objects with a masculine sense of antiquity. Made with great care and attention to detail, this series of functional every day staples are designed to be perfect men’s gifts. The products include flasks, soaps, candles, laundry bags, bamboo toothbrushes, handkerchiefs, brass desk objects, shower rings, ceramics and shower curtains.
While the collaboration with Aesthetic Movement began in 2009, Izola was originally founded in 2007 by Neil Rasmus and Richard Brandt as a company that produced innovative shower curtains for big box stores, such as Bed Bath and Beyond. In 2008 when Jesse James and Diane Shaw formed Aesthetic Movement, a design consultancy and showroom for upper echelon housewares and accessories brands, a partnership with Izola was formed. Since then, Izola has continued to evolve beyond the bathroom category into barware, desk, travel and other categories.”

“Axioma is a new company specialized in skin care products for which we had to create a corporate identity that would reflect the company’s philosophy: Offer the highest quality products made with authentic active substances.
Based on the fact that the effectiveness of each of the products is clinically proven, we chose honesty as the brand’s leading value, therefore, we decided to use the name Axioma, which means “irrefutable truth”.
We developed a clean visual language that would represent the products’ honesty and its clinical purpose. However, the typographic selection was carefully handled so that it would evoke the high-end fashion industry.”

“We are a start-up cosmetics brand that wanted not just to stand out, but to stand for something. More than just beauty, we try to provide inspiration for young women to achieve their goals and provide alternative roles models for them. Quite a tall order for a wee beauty brand, no?
Well we decided use our packaging as a canvas for young artists, featuring specially commissioned work, with artists receiving a profit share of each product sold.
Each product color is used to inspire each piece of art, that in turn can also hang on someone’s wall. The box leaflet explains our mission and where to find the wall art for sale, in the most un-leaflet way possible.”

“Cure is a company on a mission to make a difference. Their products cure your body with high-quality handcrafted ingredients, and also help cure the world. 20% of all purchases goes towards a selection of charitable organizations.
We helped promote this idea by pulling out a cross in their logotype. This symbol is instantly recognizable as the symbol for ‘aid’. Therefore playing on the idea that these products are first aid for your skin as well as having the additional benefit of aiding charities in the world.
The products were launched at ZaZa Spa in San Francisco and can also be purchased online.”
