You may remember we featured some of the Thymes range last December. Here are some more beautiful packaging solutions created for Thymes.
“A leader in the bath and body and home fragrance market, Thymes had recently celebrated its 20th anniversary and was facing tremendous competitive pressure in a fragmented and growing category. For the first time in their history they went to an outside firm to establish a new creative partnership. Duffy & Partners has had the privelege of collaborating with Thymes in revitalizing their identity, a full suite of marketing materials and nearly two dozen product collections. Importantly business results have followed this design revitalization every step of the way”.

“It seems strange that conscientious dog owners pick up their dog’s poo (which is 100% biodegradable)…only to pop it into a plastic bag that will be with us for 100′s of years.
US dogs produce enough waste to fill an 800-foot-tall football field every year and plastic bags can take over 100 years to decompose. Scooping all that poop into petroleum-based plastic bags leaches toxic chemicals as they slooowly break down over thousands of years in landfills. Alternatively, leaving scat on the ground isn’t an eco-friendly (nor neighbor-friendly) option either, as 20-30% of all pollutants in waterways can be attributed to canine waste.

Traidcraft was established in 1979 as a response to poverty, and are the UK’s leading fair trade organization. The speech bubbles on their tissue range are an excellent way to communicate directly with consumers, letting them know exactly how their purchase is helping a greater cause.

“LUCIA was inspired by Lucie Bernier (president) of Pure living products. Her many travels to Europe, Asia, etc has led her to bring back through the years an assortment of Renaissance designs on fabrics from Florence, ceramic work from Portugal, Spain and Italy, etc. She wanted to create a line of specialty soaps (now candles also) that reflected these rich textured designs. Each design reflects old world charm with a modern touch. The logo LUCIA in black & white reflected the ‘cleanness’ of a soap product and at the same time counter-act the rich and ‘busy’ textures of the old world designs. Also, this was a product that was designed in our contemporary times so the logo had to refect this. The box construction of the soaps was inspired from old, pre-war soap designs from Spain & Portugal. The candle box contruction was inspired by the ‘Pannetone’ cake found in Italy.”

This isn’t actually a concept that went to shelves but it’d be lovely if somebody ran with these, as they’re really beautiful bottle designs.
