“I created the logo artwork and packaging design for DrNo Effects, a range of vintage guitar effect pedals. It has been an absolute pleasure to work on this job as I always love to mix graphic design, custom lettering and illustration.
This project had all of these elements. I started by doing rough sketches, and created six different vintage styles, one for each guitar effect. Within each artwork, I tried to reflect the sound and style of the effect. I created custom letters to make,
every effect is unique and special. Finally, I placed the sketches in Illustrator, traced them and added colour.”

“Helios has since 1969 provided organic and environmentally friendly products to the Norwegian market. The products have traditionally been sold purely through specialty shops for organic products. Now the Helios brand is being launched to the people.
Uniform won the pitch to reposition the Helios eco-brand last year. The challenge was to transform the Helios brand from being a brand just for the typical eco-consumer, to become a brand for the regular retail customer.

“The best scents tell a story, capturing a memory or a moment in time. This is true of the new Penhaligon’s fragrance Juniper Sling, which launches this month with packaging designed by jkr.
“Juniper Sling is a very exciting concept. The fragrance is inspired by the botanical ingredients within London Dry Gin” explained Sarah Rotheram, CEO, Penhaligon’s. “We look to create fragrances that have a very British beat to them, and Gin is very much a part of the history of London. To create this fragrance, we have had the pleasure of working with an icon within the fragrance industry, the perfumer Oliver Cresp”.
“The brief was very clear on the mood and emotion we wanted Juniper Sling to conjure up from a design point of view” said Jovan Buac, Account Director, jkr. “It’s about gin cocktails in the 1920’s, bright young things and art deco nuances.” As always, Penhaligon’s aims to play on its heritage but with a nod to the modern. “The design aims to deliver simple elegance with patterns inspired by 1930’s architecture but shown in a very subtle way through the use of silver foils on the box” said Liz Stannard, Designer, jkr.
With a newly designed over-sized box structure and metal bow-tie, jkr strived to add more weight and luxury to Juniper Sling, whilst still ensuring it fitted with the rest of the Penhaligon’s range.
“This design is all about tactility and layering, but with simplicity at the heart of the design. The paper stock is tactile whilst the use of silver foils and varnishes helps create a luxurious feel” said Judith Allan, Production Director, jkr.
“The use of real metal features on the bottle & box was key. This aspect of the design was inspired by classic decanter labels and helped provide authenticity while building on the gin story at the heart of the fragrance” said Liz Stannard, Designer, jkr. “Of course, producing these labels was technically challenging, but the result is superb” added Judith Allan, Production Director, jkr.”

Designed by Monday Collective | Country: United States
Mina Harissa is a new, premium Moroccan red pepper sauce simply made with six natural ingredients (red bell pepper, red chili pepper, garlic, olive oil, vinegar, salt) and comes in three flavors (mild, medium, spicy).
Co-Founder, Fouad Kallamni, came to Monday Collective for a brand design that both differentiates within a crowded category and connects with the taste conscious consumer.
The brand identity simply expresses the culinary culture, provenance and authenticity of Mina Harissa, a sauce hailed as the heart and soul of Moroccan cuisine. The simple brand icon captures the essence of Mina Harissa by using the six ingredients of the sauce within the shape of a red bell pepper when cut in two. Its style reflects patterns and graphics found on traditional Moroccan tiles and textiles. The logo was inspired by Arabic letter forms, expressed with a touch of contemporary style. All of this combined with a color palette of tones of black with a hit of spicy vibrancy gives Mina Harissa a premium, authentic style that sets it apart from the other sauce brands.”
