Designed by Aesthetic Movement | Country: United States
“Inspired by the old world utilitarian ideal of making something that is “built to last,” Izola and Aesthetic Movement have curated a collection of whimsical objects with a masculine sense of antiquity. Made with great care and attention to detail, this series of functional every day staples are designed to be perfect men’s gifts. The products include flasks, soaps, candles, laundry bags, bamboo toothbrushes, handkerchiefs, brass desk objects, shower rings, ceramics and shower curtains.
While the collaboration with Aesthetic Movement began in 2009, Izola was originally founded in 2007 by Neil Rasmus and Richard Brandt as a company that produced innovative shower curtains for big box stores, such as Bed Bath and Beyond. In 2008 when Jesse James and Diane Shaw formed Aesthetic Movement, a design consultancy and showroom for upper echelon housewares and accessories brands, a partnership with Izola was formed. Since then, Izola has continued to evolve beyond the bathroom category into barware, desk, travel and other categories.”

“Myself and others feel that there is a lack of a premium pringles product line. Therefore I decided to design one. The outcome is a product that will stand out from the other Pringles while retaining the well known tube shape. Simple and clean packaging design that will work in the Scandinavian market.”

“Axioma is a new company specialized in skin care products for which we had to create a corporate identity that would reflect the company’s philosophy: Offer the highest quality products made with authentic active substances.
Based on the fact that the effectiveness of each of the products is clinically proven, we chose honesty as the brand’s leading value, therefore, we decided to use the name Axioma, which means “irrefutable truth”.
We developed a clean visual language that would represent the products’ honesty and its clinical purpose. However, the typographic selection was carefully handled so that it would evoke the high-end fashion industry.”

“Brand and design in homage of the Great Liberator José de San Martín. The design is inspired by the letters, post and communication of that time.
From the lands of river Plate to Mendoza, from Santiago to genteel Lima, he went, planting laurels along the way in his triumphal journey, San Martín. San Martín, the lord of war, by secret choice of God, was great when the sun was shining on him, and even greater in the sunset. Great father of the Argentine people, greatest hero of freedom! beneath his shadow the fatherland grows in virtue, in work, and in peace.”

Designed by Studija Creata | Country: Lithuania
“The most popular vodka in Lithuania ‘Lithuanian Vodka’ amazes us all again with their extraordinary design. This time it is the gold-shining limited edition ‘Lithuanian Vodka – Black Edition’, which was introduced 2011 at the end of December. Lithuanian design agency Studija Creata was inspired by Lithuania’s history and national heritage. Rhombus and herringbones, combined from little squares, are very common patterns in Lithuanian folk art. Although reference to these national motifs gained more modern forms – mysterious past reflections were transformed into modern art.”

“The CAPI brand was born from a simple idea to produce Pure, Clean, Refreshing carbonated drinks. Taking on the sourcing and blending responsibilities themselves they have secured the finest natural extracts and botanicals worldwide to ensure their promise of authenticity.
Capi Beverages were after a bold new look for their new Capi Sparkling range. The new premium range included Mixers, Fruit Sodas and Mineral Waters and prides itself on the quality of ingredients it has sourced from around the globe. The result is Premium Refreshment.
CIP Creative were engaged to create a Strong Brand Mark and distinctive packaging. When creating the brand and associated labels, we aimed for a crisp, fresh, no nonsense visual language puled together by a sharp logotype.”

“Catalina Fernandez is your typical home based bakery that started in 1988 and eventually became a successful pastry shop.
Along with the shops growth, came the need to open more branches and to penetrate new generations of potential clients.
When the client approached us, she told us her desire of upgrading the brand to a much more sophisticated style. Based on these requirement we developed a very elegant identity, with a sans serif typeface to keep the brand neutral and give it a chance to evolve in the long run, with new designs for their packaging and other printed pieces.
The various boxes and bags were decorated with details in golden foil that, not unlike Catalina’s pastries were, took many hours of attention to detail.”

“This personal project is started because of my instant crush I had when I first had a sip of it.
Mead, also known as honey wine, is the first alcoholic beverage known to man. It is often known as an aphrodisiac drink as well as a preferred drink in the ancient Greece. Beside that, this historical beverage also had long been enjoyed in the medieval ages and featured in poetry, myths and folktales.
The packaging is designed with the intention to put it into the top-tier quality of mead, with an iconic status for the brand as well as the drink. As one of the main ingredients is honey, it makes a lot of sense to craft the bottle into a hexagonal shape, very much like the honeycomb. With simplicity and elegance in mind, I chose to have the logo etched on the front and the rest of the information printed on the back of the bottle.”

“We are a start-up cosmetics brand that wanted not just to stand out, but to stand for something. More than just beauty, we try to provide inspiration for young women to achieve their goals and provide alternative roles models for them. Quite a tall order for a wee beauty brand, no?
Well we decided use our packaging as a canvas for young artists, featuring specially commissioned work, with artists receiving a profit share of each product sold.
Each product color is used to inspire each piece of art, that in turn can also hang on someone’s wall. The box leaflet explains our mission and where to find the wall art for sale, in the most un-leaflet way possible.”
