“A highly cost-effective promotion for Rellana Hair®—a range of fringed yarn—with the potential to convince wool buyers directly at various points of sale. In order to demonstrate the typical character of the wool at first sight, faces were printed on the labels around the balls of wool as a winter special. Therefore, the packaging communicated the main use of the yarn: It is perfect for scarves and hats.”

“By presenting a fictitious worst-case scenario as genuine the Anarkon project questions the influence of corporate, branding and advertising power in a culture consumed by consumption. Its goal is to encourage citizens to examine their response to commercial messaging and to play a more active role in determining the limits of corporate power in American society.”

“IdeaPaint turns virtually anything you can paint into a dry-erase surface. Big graphic elements emphasize the product’s simplicity. 50 square feet. Mix THIS into THAT with the STICK.”

“This is my Masters thesis project at HDK in Göteborg. It highlights the issue of increasing long-distance relationships and the drawbacks of computer mediated communication.
I wanted to include the reflective, relaxing qualities of crafts as way to build an emotional bond between users and the object.
It also hopes to open a dialogue about how we will value our digital artifacts in the future – our digital heirlooms.”

“400 Costumes to Die For is GS Design’s 2009 annual self-promotional piece. Designed to help recipients decide what to be for Halloween, the piece consists of two custom-made, 20-sided dice – one with 20 modifiers, the other with 20 nouns – that together offer 400 possible original costume combinations. (Zombie Elvis, Kung-fu Jesus, M.C. Mollusk, etc.) The dice are packaged inside an illustrated cylindrical tube that rotates to line up heads on different bodies. The tube is an economical one-color hot stamp on black paper. The instructions were printed as one-color paper labels and affixed to inside of the lid.”

“Photography is something you do for the pleasure of it, which is why pleasure and creativity formed the starting point for the design of HEMA’s new line in photography.
This line consists of dozens of different products in a wide variety of packaging types. The striking design has ensured that, despite all these differences, the line as a whole remains highly visible in the stores. At the same time, variations in the shape and colour ensure that the various product groups in the line are clearly distinguishable from each other.”

“As music retailers face increasing pressure to find alternative revenue streams beyond the sales of CDs and DVDs, the opportunities have to lie in lifestyle products. Inside of everyone of us is an alter-ego who secretly wants to be a rock star, pop icon or jazz supremo. This was identified by The Jupiter Drawing Room (Cape Town) with our latest range of work executed for client Musica.
Conceptualised, illustrated and designed by the Design department of Jupiter; the packaging, in-store product stand as well as the writing of the copy communicates the in-your-face, anti-establishment rebelliousness of Rock music. And lets the user believe just for a moment they really could be a rock icon.”
