“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.”

“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.”

“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.”
