“Alchemy is defined as a form of chemistry and speculative philosophy practiced in the Middle Ages and the Renaissance and it’s concerned principally with discovering methods for transmuting baser metals into gold and finding a universal solvent and an elixir of life.
In an attempt to bring a modernized design approach to the ancient practice of alchemy, I created a fictitious brand called Alchimia for my MFA graduate package design class. The prompt was to conceptualize and develop a survival kit and instead I opted to create a high-end kit for the modern day alchemist.
Embossed black and gold lettering on fine linen paper give each piece of the kit a luxurious feel while the black on black treatments keep the package design modern, simple, and elegant.”

“This packaging for flowers helps in a quick and convenient way to transport them without compromising their natural structure. The project is made from one piece of corrugated cardboard, which by proper bending becomes a stable structure able to transport various types of flowers. The packaging can also be used as outdoor advertising for florists.”

“Τhe brief: we want our high quality products to become the preferred choice for beauty concious women.
Τhe target audience: women who are well informed and prefer not to spend on highly advertised products.
The design: what we needed to convey through the identity and packaging design of this range of products was trust and intimacy. It targets women within the very environment of beauty care and we decided to make this environment part of the design concept. Youth Lab is, by language and symbol choice, a straightforward reference to a personal laboratory, a place where each individual is treated specially and with the proper, tested materials. The retro futuristic character of the lab tube and the thin, elongated type font speaks of scientific seriousness, while the choice of fluorescent colors on rough carton paper, suggests calculated boldness and personality. The result is a product that is familiar but not boring, trustworthy but also linked with research and experimentation.”

“This Limited Edition Ouzo particularly reflects an old restorative formula with a proprietary blend of herbs and botanicals in high-proof alcohol and redistilled in a combination pot and column stills to deliver the original 1929 formula “true-to-botanicals experience” of Thoukis Kiprianou, founder and master distiller.
The label depicts the main ingredient , the anise plant (pimpinella anisum) of this unique aromatic spirit in an elegant way.”

“Hornstull Brewing Society is a dedicated group of people with small egos and big dreams. Together, they are united by their love of beer and Hornstull.
Hornstull Honey Amber is their bottled tribute to Hornstull, a neighbourhood in southern Stockholm, Sweden. The beer has a special character, unique blend and unpolished qualities. Just like the area itself.
It’s an amber ale with honey from a local beehive, brewed by Pangpang Brewery exclusively for Hornstull Brewing Society.”

“Verso is latin and means reverse, as in the backside of a painting or the back view of a dress. It is what is normally hidden underneath, the mirrored view. In a metaphorical sense, you could say it means going your own way, being different. And Verso is a very different kind of skincare. It has a unique and patented formula called Retinol 8 that helps the skin cells to mimic how young cells behave, effectively reversing the signs of aging.
The Verso Skincare brand identity & packaging design was developed for over a year by Today Creative: Susanna Barrett Creative Direction, Mattias Börjesson Brand Strategy, Tom Miller Senior Designer and Torbjörn Kihlberg Designer. Web development by Emil Olsson.”

“The project was to create an environmentally sensitive package for a box of chocolates.
Olmec Chocolates differentiate themselves by showcasing their raw, organic aesthetic. The box itself is made of 100% recyclable material. The chocolates are stacked on top one another and separated by a single strip of wax paper, eliminating the usual plastic mould and individual wax paper cups. The name of each chocolate is printed on the inside the box and coincides with the chocolate itself, as apposed to a more traditional legend that is typically printed on a separate piece of paper. The belly band is also made of recyclable material, and is held together by a wax seal.”
