Designed by Marx Design | Country: New Zealand

“Marx Design was asked to create a new Coconut Collective brand that would work across a range of coconut-based products including waters, milks and cooking oils. First up was the organic King Coconut Water, a 330ml Tetra Pak available in original and flavoured variants.

Organic King Coconut Water is sourced from the famed coconut triangle of Sri Lanka, home to the golden thambili (king coconut) – the only coconut harvested specifically for drinking and chosen for its electrolyte content and natural sweetness.”

“A little while ago Marx Design issued a promotional piece so daring that some lawyers representing a certain 80s popstar sent us a letter politely asking us to cease and desist. We’re scared of lawyers, so we obliged and then promptly went into hiding waiting for the heat to die down. Fast forward a few years, and the dust has settled: it’s time for a new Marx Design Promotional Gift.

Balance is a tenet of good graphic design, but life with its ups and downs is a bit of a balancing act too. We decided to visually represent this idea in our new promo gift. With a cheeky nod to the pharmaceutical industry, we developed a selection of pill-like balancing aids.”

Cazulo

Designed by Marx Design | Country: New Zealand

“Despite being around for centuries, the cashew or coconut-based liquor called Feni is relatively unknown outside its birthplace of Goa, India. Dona Maria – a small, family-run Feni bottler – approached Marx Design to develop a modernised take on this traditional spirit. The word Cazulo, which means “firefly”, lead us to create the central logotype: a stylised firefly radiating a warming glow – much like the feeling when Feni is consumed. We felt it was very important that the Cazulo remained authentic to the essence of Goa, so we identified patterns and colours from the region and infused them into the design. Similarly, the bottle’s shape is heavily influenced by tradition. Its form is inspired by a blown glass Feni bottle over a century old.”

“Marx is such an unusual name that new clients tend to get us confused with the other lot – Richard (pop singer), Groucho (the comedian) and Karl (the communist). We wanted to clear the confusion once and for all with these light-hearted promotional pieces that establish (Ryan) Marx design as a unique identity (and go down well!).”
