When we initially posted You Smell three years ago we had no idea that Megan was going to take this product to the great heights that she has. If you’re a fan of ABC’s Shark Tank you probably watched her pitching You Smell to the sharks this evening where she came out on top with with an investment from Robert Herjavec. Congratulations Megan!
“This is a line of detergents called “You Smell” is an immediate eye-catcher, as it is eloquently presented, yet is initially insulting until the reverse side of the product is read. It continues to say “Like a Lemon!…Thanks to us!”. The subsequent title ‘Tabula Rossa’, a derivative of ‘Tabula Rasa’, a Latin phrase for ‘clean slate’. The sarcastic romance copy on the remaining sides creates an entire experience for the viewer, enticing them to continue turning the product in search of something new. It is printed on Neenah Laid paper to offer a subtle tactile quality.”

“A new coffee brand for fans of the legendary FC Barcelona – FC Barcelona Coffee House.
As street culture is familiar to soccer fans and soccer stars often start off in the street, we chose graffiti as our main inspiration. The coffee packaging design reflects Barcelona’s spirit of freedom and the will to win in bright BARCA colours.
BARCA packs come in three strength related designs: light, medium and bold.”

“In 2002, the Grassini’s established a family vineyard in the Happy Canyon of Santa Barbara, California. A simple crest with a ligature of the number 5 and the letter G was designed with inspiration from the five children. After several successful harvests, the family knew it was time to take the crest and build a more robust brand expression with Duffy & Partners—one that would more aptly reflect all that the vineyard and its harvests symbolized. Design components include metallic silk-screened bottles, individually signed and numbered labels and hand-dipped wax seals. The Grassini Family Vineyards striking new bottle design by Duffy & Partners is now on the market.”

“The brief: Matthew Algie approached us to create a new brand identity that would reinforce the company’s long standing positioning in the tea community.
Matthew Algie Esq. first began blending tea consignments in 1864, proudly packing them for Victorian Tea Pavilions. Over 140 years later, the company continues to take pride in its rich history (and its tea, of course) and wanted us to create a new identity to reinforce this reputation.
The project: Having assessed their competitors and target audience, we aimed to acknowledge the product’s heritage while appealing to the more contemporary tea-drinker.
We sourced old Victorian drawings to emphasise Matthew Algie’s past – choosing an individual teapot for each of the 10 teas and infusions – and balanced this vintage style with vibrant, contemporary colours.”

“Stain Solver is a true original. For the last 15 years (long before the “trendy” green cleaning product revolution), Stain Solver has been a leader in the “human friendly” Oxygen Bleach category. We endeavored to create a minimal identity system that sets Stain Solver apart from the typical heavy-handed cleaning product approach. It was a joy to redesign the 50lb bulk bucket that is often associated with nasty chemicals or Home Depot shopping. Now you can simply look through the new translucent square pail to see your Stain Solver like freshly fallen snow.”
