“All smokers have the problem of forgetting a lighter at the most inconvenient times. Nomad is a brand that I created to solve this problem with a self lighting aspect. The tip of the cigarettes echos the design of a match. When the cigarette is struck against the box it self lights and is ready to smoke. Reinforced by bamboo strips, these non traditional tobacco sticks are strong enough to strike but still have great flavor.
The packaging was created to resemble a matchbook, communicating the self lighting aspect. I wanted the graphics to convey a bohemian and edgy feel. Inspired from old western designs and matchbook covers i developed the nomad design solutions in three flavors.”

“If it is indirectly the quest of spices that led to the discovery of the Americas by Europeans, the passion has definitely not had much influence on American cuisine and, in fact, except salt, pepper marginal and some spices, we are collectively ignorant regarding all these subtleties that distinguish the food of men from that of animals.

“A concept series for vitamin packaging. My emphasis was on the typography and the objective was to encourage the viewer to interact with the object. When sitting on a store shelf only a piece of the larger image is visible to the viewer — a move that is intended to pique the viewer’s curiosity enough to handle the package.”

“In 2009, I graduated in Industrial Design at UniRitter (Porto Alegre, Brazil). In order to do my final project, I decided to draw packaging for jam and jellies, because these products are pretty popular not only in the south of Brazil, but also in many other places. I had two main goals with my project: to affect the environment as little as possible and to develop a product with easy access to a great number of people.
Concerning the environment goal, I decided to project a returnable packaging system. After being used, the packaging should go back to their factory, where they would be washed and potted again. In this system, it is not necessary neither to discard packaging nor to manufacture new ones. I chose glass as the packaging material because it is very resistant and it can be recycled without losing any of its physical and chemical characteristics.

“This class project was an investigation of how to create a more user friendly package for a set of six screwdrivers. The screwdrivers are easily accessible from the ‘open’ slots that indicate the tools name, shape, and size (for quick and clear identification). Reinforced craft paper was used with a one color (100% black) print job to give the overall design a raw and industrial feel, and also cut production costs.”

“Brief is to design the packaging for a new line of organic loose teas (not a live project, tea company is Ringtons tea). Things to consider were: to have packaging eco friendly, to communicate the feel of it being exclusive, limited loose tea; try to appeal to young professionals. Solution is incorporating die-cut technique, which brings both: exclusiveness and it is saving on ink, while paper used for the outer layer is made of recycling materials.”
