The box, with its slightly textural grey silhouette feels stronger than the bottle itself. Both components strongly echo the work of furniture design shop Artek, who are based primarily in Finland but who have offices worldwide.
“The unisex fragrance was created in line with Artek STUDIO’s brief on combining synthetic and natural elements. The final scent was developed by Christian Astuguevieille, perfume creator at Comme des Garçons. The result is a blend of Finnish Labrador Tea, Twinflower Linnea Borealis, metal and rust in the base notes and fennel, ginger, lemon, musk, saffron and cedarwood in the top notes. The visual aesthetics of the STANDARD fragrance were developed to stand along with Artek’s ideology and existing products. In line with Artek’s design ideology, the scent is created with the ambition to nourish physical and emotional wellbeing.”

These cheery lemon powder shakers would easily make themselves seen on a busy spice rack or disorganized kitchen cupboard. The simple display packaging is useful to supermarkets who can either hang or stack the product.

“Established in 1925, Guglielmo Winery in Morgan Hill was in need of a brand overhaul. They approached us to take a holistic approach and provide brand consultancy with the aim of better positioning themselves within the industry.
The process required an intimate approach and complete transparency about their current positioning and where they needed to be in the future. This detailed approached led us to accentuating their biggest asset – their heritage – and adding a considered modernity to the three brands of wines.

“Container has helped Elle Macpherson Intimates add value to their customer experience. A drawer box for gifting multiple knickers used a sliding tray inner and was shipped fully made up (with a bow on top) while a ‘pulse point’ oil became a sweet smelling GWP provided as a turnkey solution.”

“This is my Masters thesis project at HDK in Göteborg. It highlights the issue of increasing long-distance relationships and the drawbacks of computer mediated communication.
I wanted to include the reflective, relaxing qualities of crafts as way to build an emotional bond between users and the object.
It also hopes to open a dialogue about how we will value our digital artifacts in the future – our digital heirlooms.”

“We designed a completely new look for Schroeder, one that communicated on three levels. The first level is a clean, white opaque package that communicated a European sophistication. The next level is the use of the words One, Two, Whole, and Skim each scaled reflect the fat level of the milk, The last is the use of rotating, esoteric phrases that spoke to consumers in an anti-marketing language. Phrases like for dreamers and optimists and for those who fall somewhere in between. The early results speak for themselves. Schroeder saw a sustained 15% increase in distribution due to their new packaging and 22% increase in sales of milk during a recessionary economy.”

“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.”
