“Batzner is an independent laboratory+perfuming house in Amsterdam providing the highest level of formulations for the luxury fragrance industry. Founded in 2001 by Markos Haan the lab has produced formulas both commercially and privately for clients worldwide. In opposition to organic trends and in Dutch fashion, Batzner touts, even brags about their ability at 100% synthetic reproduction. Underscoring this craft by formulating high concept fragrances such as lucite, ceran wrap and plasti-sheen.
I was apprached to develop a packaging system for their private clients which reflected their ideology regarding fragrance. “The future of fragrance, the future of our world is synthetic. The scarcity of resources and collapse of the traditional artisan is inevitible. Rather than skirt the subject we embrace it, taking it upon ourselves to stretch the imagination and create new methods of production in the post-industrial age.” -Markos Haan In packaging this idea I eliminated all text, branding the ‘M’ in M-System as a simple graphic element and rendering packaging material in matte acrylic for a synthetic feel which also becomes an iconic POP display.”

“Sydney’s iconic restaurant, Wildfire asked us to create the labels for their new range of wines sold through the restaurant.
For the designs, we were inspired by the tradition of Venetian Theatre Masks. As with the wines, each mask represented a character, mood and embraced the notion of mystery, joy, fun, playfulness and theatre, fitting of the dining experience at wildfire.
Silver foil stamp and UV varnish helped give the label and extra dimension and life.”

“Supermarkets are expanding their fresh fish offerings to include more sustainable species like gurnard, mackerel and skate. These fish are cheaper and just as tasty, but customers often shy away from them because they are unfamiliar and occasionally just plain ugly.
This fish packaging proposal helps put these fish back on equal standing with their more recognized brethren by placing them in an attractive and highly recognizable packaging solution. The packages are intended for use at fresh fish counters. Constructed from a double layered polyethylene, they are airtight, resealable and can be filled with ice for transport to keep your fish fresh until it hits the pan!”

Designed by SAA Design | Country: United Kingdom
“SAA were tasked with creating a distinctive packaging solution for the Shepherd & Neame ale classic collection. A collection based on 18th century IPAs which relied on generous hopping to protect exports during arduous journeys, this modern incarnation retains the strength, body and strong hop character which is synonymous with this beer’s provenance.
Harking back to 18th century label design we created typographic executions that also reflected the individual taste and flavour of each ale.”
