“Pearlfisher has created the packaging design and fragrance stories for Crabtree & Evelyn’s new 2012 Christmas Gift collection.
The Christmas Gift Collection comprises of both a Home Fragrance range in two scents: Noel® and Winter Garden™ (including candle, diffuser and room spray) and a Personal Care range (including shimmering body mist and shimmer lip gloss).
The designs move away from the traditional to offer a new and original take on festive fragrance, telling stories through illustration that bring each fragrance to life – “weaving around fresh balsams and rich persimmons, the arctic fox and nimble deer breathes life into sleeping citrus trees awakening a heady burst of sharp scent”.
Sarah Butler, Deputy Creative Director at Pearlfisher said, “We devised a story for each fragrance and used bespoke illustrations, rich, contrasting colours and nature motifs to bring it to life and take the consumer into a magical and festive world, moving from the traditional and coded to a more contemporary, imaginative and inspirational expression of Christmas.”

“Originally designed in 2009 Eighthirty Coffee Roasters asked Butcher & Butcher ltd to refresh their packaging for 2013. The packs talk directly to your taste buds, celebrating subtle differences in each flavour, origin and blend.
We maintained a simple colour palate, while the ephemeral typographic treatment allows each pack to have a unique voice, yet change as the coffee flavours and brand evolve over time.”

“The idea was to create a family and to give each flavour a matching personality.”

“The brief was to bring to life the principle ingredient, preferably through the use photo-realistic images, with something that adds a touch of good humor before serving.
The romantic image of the waiter’s hands gives positive connotations of good service and quality. The steady black and white photography helps to visually unify the whole range, which is complimented by use of simple bold typography to balance the design. The size of the ingredients, in colour, have been exaggerated in relation to the plate to emphasise the high natural vegetable content of the soups in comparison to its competitor’s. This play on size coupled with the waiter concept adds the touch of humor. Bon appétit!”

“Packaging concept for local products trade fairs during the Setouchi Trienniale 2013. Inspiration for the design is a bird that occurs in areas of Japan (Parus varius). Part of his body has a similar color to the color of the product – Ricenoir Sake and has a local character.”

“Τhe brief: we want to emphasize with explicit directness, the honesty and fine quality of our olive oil production.
Τhe target audience: foreign clientele. people who value smartly presented quality.
The design: Honest Hellenic Products-Timion is one of the most present -relevant brand identities we have developed. At a time when Greece is openly criticized for misconducts, this brand identity adopts an unusually bold approach that verges on the humorous, while claiming a specific virtue as its very own differentiating quality. The logo design makes full use of the austerity implied by the brand name: honest, trustworthy, upstanding, are all properties indicated by the choice of fonts, the type of bottle, the clearly noted attributes of the product. Like an elixir, saved in modest, carefully measured proportions, the extra virgin olive oil of the laconian land travels abroad as a fine and well kept secret of the old but not lost Greek tradition.”

“Daytrader is a really funny and educational game created by Samir Lyons. It’s a financial board game that brings you the thrills and chills of investing in the stock market but without real risk. It’s simple, educational and fun.
Italic was enlisted to give Daytrader a unique and playful look & feel. The design draws inspiration from classic American business signage and simple currency-like illustrations as a tribute to the golden age of finance and Wall Street. The Americana feel to the game adds a warm, approachable simplicity to the chaotic and complex world of economic affairs. Daytrader is designed so a wide range of people can enjoy the experience of playing, from families around the dinning room table, to finance gurus, students, board game geeks and beyond.”

“As Orontas grew in terms of product offerings we realized that we weren’t going to be just a chemical company anymore because our philosophy – to make well-designed, responsibly-made, technical products – extends beyond that and we felt our existing brand reflected us as “oil company” too much. As a result, we needed a brand that could work on many different types of products and apparel and in many different counties and languages, so we made the switch.”
