“At Christmas we always look to enlarge on the idea of a simple card. Christmas is a time for fun and we take the opportunity to explore the more eccentric side to our creativity. 2008 was no exception and we embarked on devising our own festive product – the now famous ico turkey apron.
For the chef who wants to make a standout sartorial statement, bright pink is hard to beat. Lovingly produced and hand packed by a dedicated team of seamstresses, ironers, folders and packers in the ico factory. This limited edition item of practical Christmas apparel puts novelty socks and sweaters to shame. The perfect compliment for a festive feast.
But the secret is in the packaging. The pink aprons were ingeniously folded origami-style to imitate a plump turkey breast and then vacuum sealed in plastic meat packets. At a glance the resulting item wouldn’t have looked out of place in a cold counter at your local supermarket. In fact, to prove their authentic appearance, we took a fresh batch down to Smithfield meat market one cold December morning to see our turkeys in context, annoying several busy butchers in the process.”

“Karbon’s customer ‘Beyaz Firin‘ is a bakery/patisserie in Istanbul, very well known by the residents of the Anatolian side of the city. Founded in 1836 by George Stoyanof, a baker migrated from Macedonia, the bakery has been serving for 5 generations.
For the Valentine’s season, Nathalie Stoyanof Suda, the 5th generation owner of the company, prepared special products. A special packaging design has been created by Karbon for these cakes, macaroons, cookies.
The authentic logo of Beyaz Firin, which has been revised by Karbon, has been the starting point of the packaging design as it looks like a heart shape. The visual identity embraces Orange as it’s main color, however this artwork is created in pink and red, colors of love, in accordance with the season’s spirit.”

“We were to design work for a social or political cause; I chose tattoos for my topic. This Tattoo Tester is a kit that comes with certain papers so that the user can create custom temporary tattoos (transfer paper and carbon paper). The kit also includes a brochure with information on tattoo statistics and a brief history of tattooing. All parts of this kit are designed, written, and constructed by me. The box is made from light cardboard and all printed material is printed on recycled kraft paper.

“The Dom Pérignon LOVE gift pack contains a pair of stunning champagne flutes designed by avant-garde Swiss artist Sylvie Fleury and a bottle of Dom Pérignon Vintage Rosé 1998. Dom Perignon Vintage Rosé – often referred to as the ‘jewel’ of Dom Pérignon – has been created with the rarest Pinot Noir and Chardonnay grapes. Nearly 10 years of ageing are required before this amazingly vivacious and seductive wine is released and can be fully appreciated. To complement and accompany this special wine are two exclusive champagne flutes – each one with a seductive ‘lipstick mark’ handcrafted onto the exterior, echoing the glamorous encounter between the lips of a woman and the wine.
This is the second collaboration between Dom Pérignon and Sylvie Fleury – the first being the design of a stylish oversized Dom Pérignon Rosé glass to enjoy the full aromas and unique taste of the wine. The LOVE gift box sees the evolution of the glasses into champagne flutes and the surrounding LOVE casing creating a true sense of specialness and romance.”
