“It is a little known fact that San Fransisco boasts some of California’s best wines, much like many do not know that San Fransisco was also home to one of the first openly gay politicians in the United States, Harvey Milk. And thus, I created a wine which pays tribute to the memory of Harvey Milk.
This deep, rich, Cabernet Sauvignon has a strong backbone of tartness, as strong as the determined Harvey Milk, whom fought for equal rights in San Francisco as well as gay rights nationwide. In particular, the half full bottle of milk, represents Harvey’s positive attitude and take on life, despite his many obstacles. Seeing as Harvey was environmentally conscious, the box that houses the wine was created out of one sheet of board with no glue.
As Harvey Milk once said, “I have tasted freedom. I will not give up that which I have tasted. I have a lot more to drink.”

“Brief: Uncle Willy’s Wonky Crank Arms is a brand and packaging concept for a premium English bicycle crank arm manufacturer.
The product is hand made and has been ever since the company was founded back in 1988. The crank arms are made to order at a cost of £495/pair and are aimed at bicycle loving people.
I came up with the name Uncle Willy’s to give the brand some history and make it feel like a family-owned business. To describe the product I added Wonky Crank Arms which also gives the brand some humour as they are hand made.
I felt it was very important for the packaging to reflect that the product is hand made and at the same time keep giving the product a historic feel whilst keeping it premium. Using a wooden box and carving out the company name did just that. The leather hinges and adding a mahogany lacquer were chosen to give the packaging it’s premium feel. Not being able to read the name on the box is not an issue as they are not on shelves next to other brands.”

“Betty shampoo & conditioner is a product that brings out the best tones for specific hair types. Blonde, Brunette, Ginger and Noire. Instead of explaining the functionality of the product, which many of the competitors do, I decided to have fun with the copy and play around with stereotypes. The goal for Betty is to be fun, cheeky and smart.
The colour palette for each hair type relates to the stereotype and reflects the persona of who that person would be. The rectangular shape of the bottle would fit and stand nice on a bath ledge or shower rack. The bottles have a pump lid for convenience.”

“This project was for my packaging design course in which we were tasked with creating a conceptual series of consistent packages for intangible things. I decided to package light, reflection, and shadow. After brainstorming how to visually suggest that these “unpackagable” things were in fact packagable, I came to the concept of creating the effect of them as though they were trapped inside a box.”

“Visual identity and packaging to Di Napoli – a restaurant and take away as well. The identity is inspired by the biggest passion in Napoli. Soccer. But also the Italian traditions and Italian’s sense of fashion and style. The light blue logo is a shape between a napkin and the letter ‘N’.”

“Our assignment was to design a new line of four organic products for a luxurious Scandinavian hotel. As a part of the task we also had to come up with a product name which reflected the brand’s qualities and values. We came up with the name ‘Rawganic’ and the idea to create a rustic wood lid on a minimalistic designed bottle.”

“Village is a project that was developed in the Graphic Design course at IPCA (Intituto Politécnico do Cávado and Ave) in Portugal, directed by teacher Jorge Pereira.
Village is the gourmet range/brand/variety of Oliveira da Serra’s olive oil. With three types that combine the best extra virgin olive oil with different flavors like Chili, Onion and Mint.
All development of packaging was based on the traditional roots of this product, with special attention to the use of organic production. The organic concept is also represented on the labels from all the three illustrated flavors.”

“This is my Final Major Project. Each students had to choose their subject and I chose a dog grooming. I did the whole identity of the brand. The logo is a dog with a pair of scissors instead of the eyes and the doggie bow in its hair. The pattern and the colors I used helps to provide a consistent and an unified look in the Doggie Dazzle brand.”
