Traidcraft was established in 1979 as a response to poverty, and are the UK’s leading fair trade organization. The speech bubbles on their tissue range are an excellent way to communicate directly with consumers, letting them know exactly how their purchase is helping a greater cause.

“The challenge behind Beautea was to develop a line that reflected the earthy naturalness of an Organic Bath & Body line and feminity of the packaging since women were the prime consumers of this type of product. Also, since it is a bodycare line infused with Tea it was very important that the packaging reflect this and not mistaken for “drinking tea”. Inner packaging was sourced throughout the world and reflects the “cleanness” of a natural, organic line. Natural Fragrances developed by our Perfumeur in Grasse, France. All organic ingredients were sourced from Organic certified farms mostly in California. All organic tea extracts were sourced in Arizona through a specialized Tea importer. It was essential that the logo with the tea pot be sticking and reflected the ingredients inside the product… tea.”

Masha sent us this great project that she produced while studying at British Higher School of Arts and Design in Moscow.
“Artea consists of a basis – black or green teas – and additional natural ingredients. The consumer has the choice to make the tea they want which coincides with their mood and situation. They can experiment, control and change the tea to their taste.

Beautiful work from Vancouver based Hangar 18. The Pink Door Paper Company was created by Sean & Renuka Carter as an outlet to merge his passion for design with her love of personal expression.

Many thanks to Big Fish Design for sending in this beautiful packaging for Belvoir Fruit Farms.

“There’s something rather regal about the mangosteen fruit. Maybe it’s the deep color of the rind, or the pure white fruit it holds, or the density of its nutrients. Whatever it is, it’s worth capturing. Which is what we’ve done in the packaging for XanGo’s latest product, a multi-use serum made from all the goodness of the mangosteen. Traditional patterns speak to its origins, and hand treated type and brush stroke textures speak to natural organic beauty. The slide box reveals a product as unique as its custom die line.”

Thanks to Richard at Help Remedies for sending us the package designs for their new products. This is one of the best examples of product concept and design. From the naming down to the witty copy and simple, clean design, it doesn’t get much better than this.
“Our packaging is made of molded paper pulp and a bio plastic made primarily of corn. We use these materials because they are interesting to look at, and they are compostable—which means one day, they might become part of a large tree. Maybe you can cut down that tree and make it into a speedboat.
Visit this space daily to experience the ongoing struggle of “help I have a headache” as it attempts to biodegrade.”
