“We first met Dave and his sons back in 2012 when we helped to brand 450 North Brewing Co. That first project was foundational, ending with a visual identity system.
Earlier this year, we were excited when Dave called to have us design packaging for their 4 house beers; Scarecrow IPA, Copperhead Amber, Ironman English Ale, and Honey Kölsch. We got to dig back into the same Indiana farm aesthetics we explored initially and developed a fun package design system that they can grow into as they continue adding seasonals and specialty beers.”

“We created a condom brand BANG and a package design for it. Our challenge was to create the true men’s condoms. We wanted men to feel like real warriors when they buy them. Condoms are their bullets, packages are their clips and sex is their battlefield.”

“INSHAPE is a professional hair care label that infuses the very best ingredients that the Nordic nature has to offer. The brief was to create a visual identity for INSHAPE and a packaging design concept for the product series: INCURL, INFORM, INREPAIR and INVOLUME. The main elements of the identity are letterforms created from simple shapes. The idea is to help the customer easily identify the product suited to their individual need. The overall impression is confident, clean and timeless.”

“Brief: We were asked to develop concepts that explored hypothetical positionings for how eggs could better satisfy or respond to consumer needs. One of the many thoughts we had was how this commodity category could respond better to concerns related to CSR issues such as food miles and related freshness. We were intrigued by the notion that, while early adopters of CSR issues find it easy to support a cause, it is harder to convert mass-market consumers unless there is something in it for them – such as supporting locally laid eggs.
Solution: Our solution was to emphasise the benefit of locally laid eggs to consumers through a cheeky brand name that reinforces the idea of freshly laid eggs straight from the hen. The creative execution is a selection of playful caricatures of hens laying eggs with three different poses/expressions for each of the three variants.”

“Honest, authentic, strong – that’s KOLBEN, a real beer for real men. It’s the perfect refreshment after you spent a whole day in the forest chopping wood for your fireplace.
In this student project of the masters-program Packaging, Design & Marketing at Stuttgart Media University in Germany the task was to create a unique beverage brand including marketing, packaging and graphic design. From the earliest concepts to the production of the bottles and secondary packaging, we produced everything in-house at the University.”

Designed by Mad Projects | Country: Unites States | Pair with: Levi’s Made & Crafted
“To launch Levi’s Basics, the brand’s new line of men’s socks, t-shirts and underwear, Mad Projects (the licensee behind the brand) knew they had to think outside of the traditional 3-pack of briefs. With a product that stands out for its traditional denim elements, they wanted a package that was both aesthetically pleasing and functional. Each package of the 3 Series line is designed to be a keepsake, a memento and used for more than just holding boxers on store shelves.
The 200 series box is designed as a working match strike.
The 300 series is a resealable Tyvek bag, perfect for keeping coffee grounds fresh.
And the 400 series is made of authentic wood paneling.”

“The briefing (in brief): We are looking for a fun packaging to introduce our gummy jellies.
The target consumer: Children, teenagers and even adults with a sweet tooth.
The design: The product’s name served as an inspirational starting point: we opted for a strong and funky illustration which would reference the “GUM ON” word play and also allude to the chewy, gummy texture of the jellies. Our specialized designer devised a new ‘character’ who covers most of the package in a way calculated to work very well on the shelves and is color-transformed according to taste specifics (fruits, cola etc.). The front and back of each package allows for funny combinations of pop bright faces with its neighboring package, big cartoon lips snatch the jellies from the transparent part of the container and the whole lot speaks of a sweet, happy and colorful experience.”

“A new company based in Miami. Their hand-made range of savoury vegetable jams is fun food and snacks made for sharing.
The labels are a set of random die-cut perforations where the holes suggest the constant nibbling that the food provokes.”
