“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.”

Emphasizing on the manual production, the quality of the resources as well as of the final products is something we kept in mind while designing the new packaging for their bath bombs.

When we initially posted You Smell three years ago we had no idea that Megan was going to take this product to the great heights that she has. If you’re a fan of ABC’s Shark Tank you probably watched her pitching You Smell to the sharks this evening where she came out on top with with an investment from Robert Herjavec. Congratulations Megan!
“This is a line of detergents called “You Smell” is an immediate eye-catcher, as it is eloquently presented, yet is initially insulting until the reverse side of the product is read. It continues to say “Like a Lemon!…Thanks to us!”. The subsequent title ‘Tabula Rossa’, a derivative of ‘Tabula Rasa’, a Latin phrase for ‘clean slate’. The sarcastic romance copy on the remaining sides creates an entire experience for the viewer, enticing them to continue turning the product in search of something new. It is printed on Neenah Laid paper to offer a subtle tactile quality.”

“Betty shampoo & conditioner is a product that brings out the best tones for specific hair types. Blonde, Brunette, Ginger and Noire. Instead of explaining the functionality of the product, which many of the competitors do, I decided to have fun with the copy and play around with stereotypes. The goal for Betty is to be fun, cheeky and smart.
The colour palette for each hair type relates to the stereotype and reflects the persona of who that person would be. The rectangular shape of the bottle would fit and stand nice on a bath ledge or shower rack. The bottles have a pump lid for convenience.”
