Each product is hand made, followed by original recipes, synchronised of both – traditional folk wisdom and experience, also modern perfumery, candle and insence craft methodology. We discover the tender distance between daily usage of unique products and the touch of magic in our life. A kind of charming exclusive game that brings a piece of secret to our routine.

Românico Bordados

ROMANICOBABY1

Designed by VOLTA | Country: Portugal

“Românico Bordados (embroidery) wants to recover the famous Vale do Sousa (an area in Northern Portugal) embroidery and turn these fantastic linen and cotton goods into luxury items. Noticing that the motifs of these embroidery have been the same since the XII century (they are inspired in the motifs found in Romanesque style Route monuments of Northern Portugal), they asked VOLTA to create a brand that showed off this fantastic longevity, the exquisite embroidery of their products and a traditional, handmade look.Our solution was to create a symbol based on the monument’s motifs, allied to a decorative but strong typography (Estilo Pro by portuguese typeface designer Dino dos Santos). We used kraft-like paper for the tags and product boxes, printing only in one color.

We also created the brand’s kids range, Românico Baby. With illustrations by Helena Soares, based on animals portrayed on the monuments of the Romanesque Route, this brand range has, on the other side, a focus on color and decoration. Each animal has its own geometric shape and color, with this palette allowing us to create very colourful packaging and product displays.”

Wally

Designed by Character | Country: United States

“Wally is a sensor system that detects and alerts homeowners to water leaks and changes in humidity via their mobile device. Character created an identity system that extended across consumer touch points. Branding elements included website, mobile app, and retail packaging.

The new Wally identity needed to establish a sense of trust and warmth. Consumers needed to feel assured that this is a product that they could rely on to protect their homes. By extending the two ‘L’s in Wally, Character crafted a logotype that subtly yet playfully represented the way the sensors communicate with the main hub via wiring in the walls.”

Designed by Megan Sarah | Country: Canada

“Lumis is an environmentally conscious candle company. I designed packaging for their tea-lights to honour this commitment to sustainability. A recycled cardboard container with a lid will protect the candles better during transport and also be re-sealable after opening. Once the candles are gone the consumer can re-purpose this container to store something else, or easily recycle it. Allowing the natural cardboard to show, and using simple graphics and a single colour makes it instantly apparent that the minimum amount of materials and resources were used for the package. The tactile qualities of the cardboard and natural inks convey quality while also providing effective and attractive storage.”

A. Heirloom

Designed by enormouschampion | Country: United States

“We worked with A. Heirloom, a company that makes US state-shaped cutting boards, to design a single box that could house all of their different shaped boards. The solution was to create a “periodic table” of state-shapes that could be marked off to indicate the box contents. There is also an additional “other” box for their occasional custom request.”

Provenance

Designed by Jog Limited | Country: United Kingdom

“Provenance makes high-quality homeware products from recycled, reclaimed and renewable materials.

As the packaging has to sell the story of the materials as much as the product, the brand language of ‘this is now’ and ‘this was’ is used across products to introduce the story of each item’s provenance. For example, ‘this was once bottles and part of a building’ to the reverse and ‘this is now an antipasti platter set’ on the front.”

Thymes Mandarin Coriander

Designed by Zeus Jones | Country: United States

“Thymes is a company rooted in the Midwest – it’s a part of their heritage. That’s why we decided to look to the textures and images of our region when designing the Mandarin Coriander fragrance line. Our goal was to match the fresh, clean feeling of spring with the nostalgia of a warm afternoon in the kitchen. We worked closely with the Thymes team, drawing inspiration from vintage patterns, authentic packaging forms and hobnail glass. This led us down a creative path that includes an eclectic mix of custom ceramic pieces, tea towels and aprons that compliment the ever evolving mix of home fragrance products. For the color palette, we opted for bright colors that reflect the scent’s vibrant, citrusy nature.”
