“To create an interesting and engaging invitation to The Creative Method Xmas party. It needed to illustrate what we do but also create a high level of interest and anticipation for the party. It needed to be humorous and memorable. It was also required to work as a new business piece outside of the Christmas invitation. We based the idea on an imaginary pharmaceutical tablet that would solve their creative issues. Initially they were emailed a doctors prescription, followed by the package in a discrete paper bag. The invitation and the tablets were loca
ted inside. The party included staff dressed as doctors & medicinal shots administered by transvestites. The box and invitation are used as a new business teaser.”

“Design Project have just completed a new paper promotion for Fedrigoni to promote the Sirio Color range. The campaign focuses on a series of neatly engineered self-closing coloured boxes made from carefully selected combinations of colours from the Sirio range. Design
ers are invited to make up a series of coloured boxes to experience the usability of the papers and to explore the colours. Boxes are die-cut and foiled with a series of circles and when combined (by inserting one into the other) create interplay between colours. The result is an object that explores paper through form, structure and experience. The boxes will be accompanied by an A1 poster that illustrates all the combinations featured in the promotion.”

“To the children in The Third World; Tanzania, Rwanda, Burundi, Somalia, Congo and etc, who can’t enjoy football freely because of poverty, war and natural disaster, having a football means a lot and can be a dream and hope to escape from their poor life.
However, the children are so poor that they can not buy a football. So, they play football with the ball made of plastic bag or coconut palm leaves, therefore giving them their own footballs which can give them hope. This is our aim for this project.

“Sunsweet Herbal Waters is a functional water-based beverage steeped with a combination of traditional and exotic herbs, lightly sweetened with organic juices for a unique tasting, intelligent drink. Moving away from mainstream
trends of over-processed, artificial foods and bright color schemes, Sunsweet Naturals is an intelligent and serene contradiction to the norm.The design is almost botanical in its presentation of exotic herbal ingredients, a delicate balance of efficacy, botany, and peaceful optimism. The tactility of using real materials — textured paper, sleek glass, and matte finish — helps to highlight the natural aspects of the products and reinforces what Sunsweet has come to call its “serene authenticity.”

“CLD&AD were brought in to help with the autumn 2009 launch of Mini Giants, a new on-line premium children’s brand. Camilla suggested creating the “Mini Giants” as actual characters inhabiting the Mini Giants world, to give the brand the quirky identity the brief required. After commissioning a five way pitch, illustrator Nila Aye was briefed to interpret the world of the Mini Giants and to create the Mini Giants characters themselves. The team then went on to design all of the branding, the website, and the packaging for this high-end brand. For the packaging, CLD&AD suggested the use of the Mini Giants characters as stickers, in order to create a cost effective, fun and surprising offer, which would be different every time.”
