“The idea behind the design is to do sustainable, organic, label free packaging. Since all produce grown at organic farms is just a little bit different from each other, I decided to make everything about the packaging, just a little bit different from each other. The phrase “the grass is greener of our side” is the concept behind the designs. The paper used for the bag and menus at their store and cafe is 100% recycled and biodegradable, made with grass seeds. So however it is disposed of, wherever it ends up, grass will grow, a way to give back to the farm’s free-range animals. All type used in the packaging is hand rendered in the shape of grass. The milk jugs, which are label-free, have all information printed right on the glass, and would be returned by the customer to be refilled and reused. The cheeses are packaged with biodegradable cheesecloth and biodegradable wax paper. Whether it is cheese made from goat’s milk or cow’s milk, is differentiated by the sticker which holds the wax paper together. All products/packages are stamped with the farm logo “Nezinscot Farm”, again, making each package unique from one another. Even though it is the same stamp, the reproduction on each is just a little bit different, just as produce from an organic farm.”

“Westmalle Tripel is a Belgium beer brewed by monks of the Westmalle Abbey. It is sold as a not-for-profit product with all surplus donated to charity.
My concept behind this packaging was very much driven by religious imagery, inspired by the Abbey that the beer is made in. The iconic arch of a stained-glass window is reflected in the typography, bottle and carry pack of the product. The packaging is designed to allow light through to further emphasize the intended aesthetic.”

“This isn’t just any old meat packaging. This is meat packaging for an entirely new process of growing meat, separate from the animal! It might sound crazy but this project is a based on real technology. Be honest, there’s nothing quite like a juicy piece of steak. Homegrown offers eco conscious meat lovers hormone and antibiotic free meat. Thanks to In Vitro technology, you can grow your own meat by nurturing food cells just as you would tend to a garden. The way it works is you extract a cell from a baby animal and keep it in a clean isolated place and nurture it by feeding it appropriate proteins and omega 3’s. You can watch it grow just like you watch plants grow! Each pack includes cartoons with food cells as well a tubes of dissolvable protein tablets, omega 3, and even a growth chart!”

“The Protector product line is based on the idea of creating beauty products for men, who don’t want to be metrosexual. A few years ago, the media started to proclaim the “new masculinity”, for example Burger King (e.g. the “men’s academy”). Regarding this fact, is designed the “protector series”.

“This is a project for a ice cream identity and package family for kids. It was a final college project created for the Graphic Design Project class in the College of Arts and Design Caldas da Rainha (ESAD.CR), Portugal. The faces and expressions interact with the kids by showing how fun and delicious it is to eat ice cream and turn the package into a collectible and reusable fun object for kids. Particularly, I always feel like laughing when i look at theses happy faces.”
