Student Work – Amrita Marino

Designed by Amrita Marino | Country: United States

“This project’s purpose was to take a product from a 99 cent store and repackage it as a luxury brand. I chose a toothpick for the project. My research indicated that the toothpick used to be a luxury item in Europe during the renaissance and simply created a brand based on that idea. I selected the name Princess and the Pick as a tangential reference to the Princess and the Pea, the fairy tale by Hans Christian Andersen. The basic story is that of an Italian princess and her marriage dowry that consisted of scented toothpicks. This heritage is still continued in the brand today.”

Student Work – Cari Caldwell

Designed by Cari Caldwell | Country: United States

The brand name I made up was Java Nest Coffee because of the bird theme. This was an open project for my student portfolio, and was awarded ‘Best Packaging’ in Texas Tech’s senior portfolio show for Communication Design.”
