“This work is something which we recently produced for Icon Magazine’s Rethink project. We were tasked with rethinking something we felt was in need of an overhaul. We focussed our attention up paint tins, and specifically the Dulux brand. Below is an excerpt from the interview for Icon Magazine:
Having recently braved the turmoil that is home decorating, the pain of standing in front of rows of souless tins of paint with no personality was fresh in the mind like a newly glossed skirting board. Therefore, when Icon’s ReThink brief landed, that feeling of being a frustrated paint consumer became the focus of our attention. When everyone thinks of paint (certainly in the UK) I’m sure they think of Dulux.”

“Provenance makes high-quality homeware products from recycled, reclaimed and renewable materials.
As the packaging has to sell the story of the materials as much as the product, the brand language of ‘this is now’ and ‘this was’ is used across products to introduce the story of each item’s provenance. For example, ‘this was once bottles and part of a building’ to the reverse and ‘this is now an antipasti platter set’ on the front.”

“Thymes is a company rooted in the Midwest – it’s a part of their heritage. That’s why we decided to look to the textures and images of our region when designing the Mandarin Coriander fragrance line. Our goal was to match the fresh, clean feeling of spring with the nostalgia of a warm afternoon in the kitchen. We worked closely with the Thymes team, drawing inspiration from vintage patterns, authentic packaging forms and hobnail glass. This led us down a creative path that includes an eclectic mix of custom ceramic pieces, tea towels and aprons that compliment the ever evolving mix of home fragrance products. For the color palette, we opted for bright colors that reflect the scent’s vibrant, citrusy nature.”

“Expertly crafted from layers of luxurious damascus steel, this super premium range had to appeal to chefs and home cooks who take their cooking uber seriously. Midori, the Japanese word for green reflects the subtle tints of colour in the micarta handle and we commissioned an elegant wooden case, the traditional way to present something of such value.”

“A simple and elegant design, where information and ornamental details determine the final outcome. This is exemplified in the illustrations, blind emboss with silver ink, and the paper used.”

Designed by Aesthetic Movement | Country: United States
“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.”

“Stain Solver is a true original. For the last 15 years (long before the “trendy” green cleaning product revolution), Stain Solver has been a leader in the “human friendly” Oxygen Bleach category. We endeavored to create a minimal identity system that sets Stain Solver apart from the typical heavy-handed cleaning product approach. It was a joy to redesign the 50lb bulk bucket that is often associated with nasty chemicals or Home Depot shopping. Now you can simply look through the new translucent square pail to see your Stain Solver like freshly fallen snow.”

Designed by YOYO | Country: Spain
“Imagine what it would be like to take a bath with a shark, to have a cactus that doesn’t sting or to laughingly reach into an alligator´s mouth. Pixel by pixel, you can create, let grow and have your dream come true.
The Puxxle makes everything possible. The Puxxle is born out of the fascination that two sisters have for games. From childhood on, Catarina Lente and Luisa Lente pass most of their spare time with puzzles, imagining characters and inventing games. With the emergence of the Spectrum, they discover a new world and later on, with SimCity2000, their fascination for pixel-constructions begins.
Specialized in Graphic Design, Product and Web, in 2004 they found the design company YOYO. After years of work and many different projects, it is with pixel-projects that they imagine what it would be like to lift the pixelized universe from the screen into the real world. Composing in pixel is not solitary work in the computer anymore, but rather a game, a pixel puzzle, where both of them can intervene pixel by pixel and where everything is possible.”

Designed by Studio h | Country: United Kingdom
“Branding and packaging design by Studio h for Brio and Vardo, two new brands for the first detergent products to be manufactured in Georgia. Aimed initially at the Georgian market and their neighbouring countries, it was important that Brio and Vardo appealed as local brands reflecting their Georgian provenance and at the same time competed on shelf with the large global competitors. Standing aside from the industry norms Studio h concentrated on using symbolic imagery to create an emotional link to the culture. The branding for Vardo uses a rose, Georgia’s national flower. Brio’s circular illustration reflects the mountains and trees of Georgia’s landscape and the colour palette references the natural hues of the Southern Black Sea region.”
