“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.”

“Clean Break offers tongue-in-cheek parting gifts for that not-so-special someone. The concept is a line of confections, gift cards, and gift bags to deliver a “dear john” break-up message with humor. Our hope is that mismatched lovers can share a laugh in what is naturally an awkward moment, and perhaps even start a lasting platonic friendship.

Candy product packaging, like the “Don’t be Bitter” Lemonheads, proclaims such messages as, “Someone once told me, when life gives you a lemon… dump him.” And the cards offer options such as “I hope you… A) Find love. B) Call me to hook up. C) Go to hell or D) Get an STD.”

Jealous Sweets

Designed by B&B studio | Country: united Kingdom

“B&B studio has rebranded Jealous Sweets, a UK entrepreneur looking to bring credibility to candy with its range of delicious and high quality sweets for grown-ups. Jealous specialises in gummy and jelly treats that are made without gelatine, artificial colours or flavours, so they’re 100% vegetarian, gluten-free and full of natural fruit juices.”

“The existing Jealous packaging wasn’t working hard enough to communicate the brand’s premium positioning and the purity of its products,” explains B&B studio Creative Partner Shaun Bowen. “And the Jealous name had no real link back to the sweets themselves. We set about linking the two through the idea of ‘covetable candy’ – a concept that we visualised using a precious jewel icon and a characterful Magpie with an eye for something special.”

Marou x Wallpaper*

Designed by Rice Creative | Country: Vietnam

“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: Repackage items for the existing online retailer, Dulce Mexico, that provides traditional Mexican candies, fruit snacks, and drinks from a variety of sub-brands. Rethink how Dulce Mexico can introduce themselves to a US market with a stronger brand presence.

Concept: As Dulce Mexico, currently an online candy retailer, is in a unique spot right now as they’re basically introducing themself to a US market, they have a unique opportunity and range of what they can do and how far they can push the brand. My solution to Dulce Mexico’s branding strategy is to play up the elements that are already unique to their candies, the oral experience and sinful indulgence of the sweet and spicy.

And so, the fun is in the foreplay, as Dulce Mexico’s packaging highlights the opening ceremony and sequence of indulging in Mexican candy. Adding intuitive elements such as tequila and tamarind mix further embraces the very experimental nature of these traditional desserts. Whether its girls’ night out, or girls’ night in, Dulce Mexico’s redesigned packaging catches the US market’s attention with a more playful, sexy, and contemporary eating experience.”
