“Leis aims to revive the centuries’ old woodcraft tradition called ‘suha roba’, born in Slovenia amidst one of Europe’s most forested areas. Combining contemporary design and long-established hand-crafting skills, the brand’s purpose is to manufacture appealing, user-friendly and well-designed products made strictly using locally sourced beech.
The first product is a three-piece kitchenware set consisting of a fork, spoon and spatula. They feature an integrated magnet for easy storage, lifted ends to prevent smearing and a curved shape ensuring an easy and secure hold. Future products will include nature-friendly Christmas ornaments and office accessories.
Designed, developed, sourced and handcrafted within a 30 km radius, Leis promotes a sustainable, fair-trade business model. Leis is the result of a partnership between the companies Rimarket, which oversees product development and manufacture, and Gigodesign, for design and branding.”

“This is an eco-friendly light bulb packaging for a single GE Energy Smart light bulb. It is constructed from a single sheet of recycled chipboard using no glue and minimal ink. The idea was to find a way to use the least amount of material while still offering protection.”

“We have just brought out a new range of cups and plates that come packed in reusable packaging. The idea was to make the packaging so pretty and in such good quality that not only does it protect the product, an not only is it so pretty that you don’t have to wrap it to give it as a gift – but you also want to keep it for storing other things! The insert can be removed and the box is there for you to store whatever you have that needs storing, paper, pens, toys or any little bits that you have lying around.
There are 3 ranges; Tingleby, Harvest and Familjen. I will send you the ranges separately. In this e-mail I will attached Familjen. I hope you like! Please let me know should you want any more information!”

“Circle 21 Candles produces all natural soy candles in a line of location-themed scents. The candles are hand-poured into recycled wine bottle containers and topped with “branded” corks to keep the candles smelling fresh. For the labels, we created a blank letterpress label template and used custom rubber stamps for each scent. This not only allowed the client to easily and economically add new scents but also gave each candle a unique, one-of-a-kind feel.”

“Pearlfisher has created the packaging design and fragrance stories for Crabtree & Evelyn’s new 2012 Christmas Gift collection.
The Christmas Gift Collection comprises of both a Home Fragrance range in two scents: Noel® and Winter Garden™ (including candle, diffuser and room spray) and a Personal Care range (including shimmering body mist and shimmer lip gloss).
The designs move away from the traditional to offer a new and original take on festive fragrance, telling stories through illustration that bring each fragrance to life – “weaving around fresh balsams and rich persimmons, the arctic fox and nimble deer breathes life into sleeping citrus trees awakening a heady burst of sharp scent”.
Sarah Butler, Deputy Creative Director at Pearlfisher said, “We devised a story for each fragrance and used bespoke illustrations, rich, contrasting colours and nature motifs to bring it to life and take the consumer into a magical and festive world, moving from the traditional and coded to a more contemporary, imaginative and inspirational expression of Christmas.”

“This wooden box is designed by Ewa Dagny and is inspired by artworks of a Norwich artist Randi Antonsen, who also colaborates with YouArtMe.
They are produced hand-made and according to the fair trade principles by a local, native and family owned company from a little village called Górsk (Gorsk) near Toruń (Torun) in Poland.
The star themed boxes are a great idea to crown the Christmas gift. They can also be reused afterwards for example as an pencil case and in many other ways.”

“The project included initial branding concept and logo development through to packaging and website design. The packaging was an important aspect for this start up company, as they were launching with only one product ahead of the Christmas 2012 retail period. The product is a ply-wood Christmas tree, providing an eco friendly, sustainable, and stylish alternative to regular plastic trees. The packaging needed to be strong enough to hold a 7kg wooden product, and ensure that it could be packed away each year after the Christmas period. Our considerations also included the shipping of the product around the world, so it needed to stand up to a bit of ‘rough handling’ in the postal system. The solution chosen was a cardboard carton with carry handle. We utilised a 1-colour print to keep with the companies ‘no-fuss’ ethos, as well as keeping the production under budget. The package clearly displays all important details, with a clear hierarchy of information. The graphic icon which was developed is a prominent representation of the product on the front of the package. The back of the package incorporates a playful element, another important value to the client. This being a silhouette of an axe, so when the package is carried by the handle, the customer appears to be walking away with an axe in hand. This idea played on the nostalgic practice of going out to a forest to cut down your own tree.”
