“Folksaga is a Swedish distillery of akvavit, a traditional scandinavian liquor flavored with ingredients such as caraway, anise, or ginger. The concept behind the project was to broaden akvavit’s appeal to an American market while maintaining its rich, nordic roots. Each bottle features a popular folk tale from Sweden. Ranging from murky mermaids to terrible trolls, these mythological characters are always up to no good — preying upon travelers lost in the wild. The project was art directed by Paul Kepple of Headcase Design.”

“More is a premium fruit juice which contains high percentage of real fruit extracts, therefore the name “More” was selected for the brand. The plus (+) icon on the package is used as a symbol to indicate the rich fruit ingredient of More. The plus changes color according to the flavor. White is used all over the package. Plus and white emphasizes the health and triggers the perception of hygene. White is also differentiating the package of More from the other fruit juices on the market shelves and putting it forward. The simplicity of the package is an advantage. Illustrations on the package are effective but not distorting the simplicity.”

“When Wallpaper* Magazine discovered Marou Chocolate, our client, they felt that this singular dark chocolate, hand-crafted in Saigon using purely local ingredients was a perfect match for their third annual Handmade issue (an issue with a focus on unique products combining luxury, craft and inspiration). Marou offered to create a special edition Wallpaper* chocolate bar in time for exhibiting at the 2012 Salone de Mobile in Milan. The packaging we designed for this occasion would stay true to the inspiration behind the standard Marou chocolate bars and press further the attention given to lovingly hand printed details. We strayed some from the traditional motifs of the standard bars to embrace a more modernist approach while incorporating the well known Wallpaper* asterisk mark. It began by creating a new background pattern, which moved away from the traditional lattice and organic elements, replacing them by geometric elements forming an extension of the Wallpaper* asterisk.
The same hand mixed inks and screen-printing methods used on the standard Marou packs were employed, but a new palette of hues would be used, derived from the Wallpaper* handmade seal. The seal even informed a limited edition version of Marou’s Monogram for this occasion. The final touch of hand embossing some of the pack’s design elements set the stage for a fully considered hand crafted piece.”

“Brief: Launched before the cider trend properly exploded onto the New Zealand market, the success of DB’s Crushed Apple Cider soon led to a Pear variant, and the need for a new 12-pack range. The company had a strong offering in place: a premium cider, 100 per cent sourced from New Zealand raw materials instead of the concentrate used by competitors. What it needed was packaging that would vocalize the product’s unique selling point.”

“I was invited to my mother’s garden in Szentendre to pick apricots. The result was at least 5 kilos, so I had to think about a way to save it for the winter. I asked my friends to help me, so we decided to make jam out of it. We boiled and peeled them, and used a secret recipe of my friend’s grandma. Next day we filled the jam into small jars, from then on I only had to think about some branding. Íz means “taste” in hungarian, but also the name of the jam you fill the pancakes with.”

“A new ‘forest-bathing’ brand from Japan.
From the refreshing scent of Japanese spicebush (kuromoji) to the exotic sweetness of Anise Magnolia (nioikobushi), yuica is the pure essence of Japanese forests, distilled into 100% natural essential oils. The benefits of yuica are perhaps best expressed by the term “forest-bathing”, which has increasingly become popular here in Japan.
Kotoha, a new brand of hair and body care products with yuica’s aroma oil, are made solely from plant-based ingredients. Kuromoji line-up will provide care for damaged hair, while Nioikobushi line-up will provide care for your scalp.”

“A package destined for the foreign market, that expresses the taste and spirit of a typical Italian product: Pasta Garofalo arrives in Brazil with Angelini Design.
The packaging of pasta Filippo Menna has been studied by Angelini Design to export our good name overseas: the classic transparency of the packages was joined by a symbol of the Vesuvius and the traditional color of the city of Naples, light blue.The Italian touch on this packaging is evident, inside it is the most traditional line of products for Garofalo: this pasta in fact takes its name from the son of the Group’s president, and is prepared according to the classic recipe of Gragnano.”
