    When the owners of Chez Dré in South Melbourne decided to open up a European styled dessert boutique next door, they wanted to stand apart from others and give the space a sense of permanence. Bibelot (French for a small object of curiosity, beauty or desire) was thus born, encompassing an artisinal patisserie, gelateria, coffee bar, chocolate shop and high tea salon. Wanting to marry branding, packaging and signage together to evoke a strong sense of place, we drew upon traditional mosaic tiling techniques as a design reference point. We custom crafted typography with intricate tiling patterns in a bold and geometric typeface to give a sense of modernity and avoid a pastiche look. A suite of patterns lend the packaging designs variety whilst the deliberately monochromatic palette of black and cream unites the brand. We collaborated with Breathe Architecture and a mosaic artist to create the custom signage elements within the space.

    Dalia is a Greek company which products cosmetics for women and sells worldwide. Dalia's goal is to create natural cosmetics, no animal tested, with old fashion granny style and elegant, since it addresses to all kinds of ages through its shop and its website. The final brand name was the Dalia. Direct and with no excesses it gives us the impression that is talking about a natural perfumed product. Design could be directed more freely to give the concept result.

    The font was designed by hand and its a curved font respect to the women figure. A particularity of the logo that makes the font more recognizable is the circle that is cut from the letter "a".The circle represent the woman shape and liquid sense of the product. To create this old fashion style, I designed several flowers and a dalia to decorate my designs. This will make easier to understand that our product is natural, cosmetic and for women.

    Vera Terra is the name of the latest exclusive rose wine we created for one of the most iconic wine producers in Bulgaria – the Black Sea Gold winery.

    The name comes from Latin and means ‘true land’. It tells the audience that this wine is special and that it comes from one of the best regions in Bulgaria for white and rose wines – the Black Sea area. The label is a logical connection between the existing award-winning design for Salty Hills wines, the Vera Terra project and the sea. It features abstract illustration of sea waves and currents printed with elegant gold and copper hot foil. We used one of our favorite papers here – Jade Raster by Manter Arconvert because of its fine grainy texture and amazing pearl shine finish. Vera Terra wine label carries the warmth and freshness of sunny summer days and the amazing smell of sea breeze. The bottle here is another treasure that adds more value and quality to the whole project – Maxima by Saverglass. Elegant and unique it perfectly complements the overall look of the packaging.

    A gentle satin pale beige capsule was the final touch of our work here – elegantly branded with Vera Terra name. The top of the capsule features a detail of the waves image from the front label.

I focused on the technique involved in colouring hair and experimented by mixing dyes to reflect the process of mixing hair colours. The result was a vibrant mark that would be noticeable and distinctive to Sallys Ion range. A vibrant box allows the product to stand out on the shelf, whereas the bottle itself is clear and simple focusing on the end result. The mark could then effectively be carried across different promotional elements.

    A head of cheese is wrapped in a thin paper, which contains information about the main stages of cheese production. To reflect the local production a real map of the area indicating the location of the farm has been used in the design of the label. To give the product greater individuality it is provided with a liner which includes farmer’s appeal to buyers.

    ‘Tis the season for delicious spiced drinks! Mulled wine, or Glögg in Sweden, is a red wine made with various mulling spices and raisins. On cold winter days, it’s customary to grab a glass of it, especially at Swedish Christmas celebrations. Scandinavian Design Group designed the packaging for 2016’s Glögg release from Blossa, the market leader in Sweden, with inspiration from the Swedish wildwood and its immense and mysterious forests.

    Starting work with Blossa at the 2011 edition, Scandinavian Design Group created a design concept that evolves and develops with each annual release, moving the brand into a larger context beyond the packaging design – and beyond the perception of a traditional Christmas drink. The concept is based on new and interesting places where Blossa travels to find inspiration and exciting flavours. Coordinates on the bottle guide us to the exact destination that inspires each year's flavours.

    In order to find unexplored and exciting flavors, you don’t need to travel far. Blossa’s most exotic taste ever origins from Sweden. In 2016 the coordinates 63°69'72.0"N 13°81'76.7”W bring us to the northern forest Storskogen and the flavors Crowberry and caramelized Birch Sap with a hint of smoke. The design scheme is a tribute to the mystery and depths of the Swedish forests, and the gold elements symbolize the treasure of flavors to be found.

    Packaging Materials: Glass, Paper

    Rakijateka is a fictional, small family distillery which produces high-quality brandy. In Serbia fruit brandies are commonly known as Rakija, and the most popular flavours are Šljiva - made from plums, Loza - made from grapes, Dunja - made from quince...

    It is widely known in Serbia, that rakia (serb. rakija) has been always considered a traditional cure, which is the main reason why she became a part of the "home pharmacy system" in almost every household. Many believe that besides being able to lift up your mood, helps in better digestion and elimination of various types of pain. But whether can rakija really cure diseases or these are just empty beliefs and secret desires, will remain debatable and each of us is given the right whether to believe it or not. This is the reason why the name of the distillery is actually a play of words - Serbian word for pharmacy is "Apoteka".

    The whole concept, which was done as my master’s degree project, is based exactly on these common folk beliefs and supposed to have a touch of humor in it. The aim was to create such a brand that will at the same time be modern and tradition-oriented, so as to be interesting and meet the needs of all generations, both young and elders. The names of different flavours derive from the fruits they are made of and the name of the specific medicine, because in my country we see this brandy more like a cure than the regular alcoholic drink. That's why each flavour is meant to "cure" symptoms of various "diseases" that are related to everyday problems: mood swings, worries, stress, broken hearts, disappointment...

    Paqui created the Carolina Reaper Madness chip (the World's Hottest Tortilla Chip) made with the infamous Carolina Reaper pepper, to be sold as individual chips in their “One Chip Challenge” campaign. We designed packaging to convey the heat and excitement of the Carolina Reaper pepper, a single-chip pouch to seal in freshness and the dangerously spicy seasoning, and a coffin box to protect the chip pouch and inform the consumer of the risk involved.

    The coffin tells us: "THINK YOU CAN HANDLE THE HEAT?"

    The chip in this box is made with the hottest chile pepper on the planet, the “Carolina Reaper,” created for the sheer pleasure of intense heat and pain. Subjects can expect short-term loss of speech followed by extreme profanity, heavy breathing, enhanced sinus functions, and impaired vision from heat-induced tears."

    After reading all the warnings on coffin, the brave soul opens it to find a pouch with an image of the Reaper wielding his metallic blade with a final phrase: "Fear the Reaper".

The package design and re-branding was done by Lauren Cooke Design.

It began with a conversation with artist, Satsuki Shibuya who was commissioned to create six original watercolors inspired by the actual products. Working closely with Bri, we wanted to ensure that the products felt like miniature works of art for her customer’s home. Along with the watercolor, the tubes incorporate ingredient illustrations to present the natural, healthy elements in every product.

    We worked with Paper Tube Co. to print quality paper tubes that could be reusable, recyclable and all around earth-friendly. We sourced Terraskin labels through Frontier Labels for waterproof, eco-friendly labels demonstrating the brand’s commitment to taking care of the environment.”
