“The collection of mass-market fragrances COMOTÚ, designed for Mercadona, was aimed to be a simple product, in harmony with its price, but with a surprising presentation. In order to achieve a good brand image and minimize the costs of production, only one bottle design was used for the eight different fragrances, four in black for men and four in white for women. The distinct fragrances can be differentiated thanks to the different colours of their tops.
The shape of the bottle is rounded and curved, and the packages show shiny and metallic colours.
The final design both of the bottle and its package has the gift to transmit high quality and modernity at a competitive price. It proves that a mass-market product with a good design can be very successful.”

“I saw this project from beginning to end. From carving molds for the soap shape to choosing the perfect scents, Adam & Eve Soap was born. When my professor jokingly mentioned creating a his and hers soap for some sexy bath time fun, the idea was planted. This soap would be sold near Valentine’s Day and would be promoted as a gift soap. The man buys it for his leading lady, and both of them get a little something out of it (if you catch my drift). I even went as far as to choose scents that are known to be aphrodisiacs. It’s a soft approach into the intimate world.”

Print Mag will be doing a live webcast next week (August 4th) with the owner and designer at Pangea Organics. They’ll be talking about how they made the boxes for their gift sets which are 100 percent biodegradable, and have Blue Spruce seeds embedded in it, so you can plant it and grow a tree.
The Pangea guys will also be giving constructive advice to packaging designers looking for tips on making sustainable packaging.

The bardcode/UPC is usually that one dreaded element that soils your beautiful package design. In the case of DeliShop, Enric Aguilera decided to create a brand which relies heavily on it.

“This boutique getaway focuses on personalized customer experiences, so overall branding and touchpoints create a refreshing, zen-like feel. Inspiration for the logo came from traditional seals used as signatures in Asian cultures. Packaging for the salon+spa incorporated clean lines, repeating patterns and fun usage of bamboo in unexpected places.”

“The owners of the highly regarded Niagara winery, Vineland Estates, had a great idea. To combine their award winning VQA Niagara icewine with pure Canadian vodka and create the world’s first single pour vodka icewine martini.
Devilishly simple and wonderfully elegant, the resulting nectar was nothing less than luxuriously decadent indulgence in a glass. Insite was asked to create a brand, name and package that would keep up with such a potentially hot potato — a look that would carry premium weight while remaining approachable and cross consumer compatible.
