“As part of our ongoing work with the cult beauty brand Illamasqua, we have been heavily involved in the creation, development and launch of their first fragrance. As a brand that celebrates the idiosyncrasy of people, being unique and out of the ordinary, Illamasqua adopted the name ‘Freak’ for the fragrance.
Given this as a basis, we explored a range of different avenues for what a ‘Freak’ bottle should look like. We decided on the bottle in the attached images. The shape is based on a traditional classic perfume bottle, with the bottom right corner removed to make the bottle stand on its edge, echoing the Freak ethos of ‘refusing to fit in’.
A silver snail is attached to its side, a snail being a creature that is perfectly formed yet not admired as being conventionally beautiful by the masses, this represents Illamasqua’s love of beauty in all things, especially the unconventional.
Illamsqua considers itself a night-time brand, therefore it makes sense that this unisex fragrance is made from flowers that bloom only at night, including the Queen of the Night (or Nightblooming Ceresus), a rare flower from the Arizonian desert which blooms for only night a year or when the moon is full.”

Designed by We Buy your Kids | Country: Australia
Batlow is a small country town located in the Snowy Mountains region of NSW, Australia. The Batlow Apples brand has been in existence since 1922 and is a household name within Australia. Batlow Apples has great brand recognition driven by their iconic green sticker that is placed on every Batlow Apple. This sticker is synonymous with quality, premium grade apples. We Buy Your Kids (WBYK) were approached to design the logo and packaging for Batlow Premium Cider. Batlow Premium Cider has a light golden appearance with fine bubbles from natural carbonation. The aroma is fresh, fragrant apples with a hint of earthiness. The taste gives a mild, refreshing sweetness followed by a light grip on the back palate and a clean medium dry finish, resulting in a well-balanced, fresh tasting cider. The brief was to design a package that leveraged the heritage of the Batlow brand, whilst delivering a contemporary, fresh, look and feel that reflected the positioning of the newly launched cider.

Working Banjo’s stout serifs and spindly strokes around those bends, slots, scores and tucks required lots of cuttin’ and compin’.
The Conran crew liked it so much that they commissioned a mini size to act as an invitation for their Case Study Reception party at their Marunouchi location.

“These re-designs of classic Parker Brothers board games stemmed from a desire to de-construct the overdone packaging board games nowadays are so known for. Drawing inspiration from vintage, modernist game box designs, these re-inventions focus on simplistic imagery, experimental typography, and limited color schemes.”

“Simple Spirit! A white, classy label for a fine mastiha liqueur. The non-colour packaging inspires through simplicity, graphic weights and analogies. A touch of metallic turquoise brings everything into balance. ENOSIS in Greek means union. People under the same spirit, the same beliefs and care, gathered, inspired and created a unique spirit: the original mastiha liqueur.”

“We really enjoy designing labels for small batch wines as it opens up so much possibility when free of the constraints of volume application and materials. Also, the consumer’s relationship with small volume wines is more intimate and as such close-up and tactile. Not to mention, the wineries themselves don’t mind hand applying labels when there are so few to do!

Designed by The De Kleine Wijn Koöp | Country: South Africa
“The De Kleine Wijn Koöp is a circle of friends, made up of sommeliers and graphic artists. As we deal with wine on a daily basis, every now and then we stumble upon a wine too small to fit into a particular winemaker’s series or simply too strange and unique to suit the commercial market. We then buy in these wines and dress it in a more ‘flip-flops and boardshorts’ than ‘black-tie’ fashion.
De Kleine Wijn Koöp is a playground for our creative expression, outside of the conventions of the wine-shop’s shelf. Brace yourself for once-off, unique wine offerings.
Our fist offering is duly named, the “Debutant” and there are only 600 bottles available, each numbered by hand. It costs R150 for one of these wines.”
