“The idea behind this design was to use as many handmade elements as possible. The only thing on this that is not handmade is the surgeon general’s warning on the back label. Other than that, everything from the shape of the labels, to the depiction of the mythical “Black Howler” is hand done.”

“This is a concept for a “RePackaging” assignment in which I chose to repackage bras. The packaging was inspired by a KBG commercial in which a young man asks how to tell his girlfriend’s breast size. The answer was to simply relate them to a piece of fruit: “Are they apples, oranges, or grapefruits?”
I thought it was a hilariously cute ad and decided to create a line of bras whose packaging corresponded with the appropriate fruit sizes. A cups are apples and B cups are oranges and etc. Since the concept was very “fruity” in nature, the dingy hangers that lingerie normally came with seemed no longer appropriate as I wanted something light and playful.”

The clean white faceted look of this wrapping would be sure to go with any flower type or colour, making it a versatile packaging solution for a high-end florist.

“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.”
