    The Rhône is a more than 800 km long river that flows in France. The river offers perfect conditions for growing wine, herbs, various fruits and olive trees. The ragged mountain landscape meets bright light coming from the south.

    These facts form the basis for Rhone, a fictional manufacturer of the finest olive oil. Rhone combines classic elegance with modern clarity. The logo is a combination of word and figurative mark. A classic typographic approach was combined with a modern, reduced illustration. A clear distinction from competitors' products is generated by dispense with typical images of olives, olive trees or landscapes. Instead, the scenic contrast is used in dark mountains and glittering sunlight and translated into a monochrome design. The packaging is reduced to the essentials and attracts attention especially because of this contrast.

    Rhone embodies enjoyment and delight, as well as an extraordinary quality of life. The hard contrast, as well as the landscape, is broken by a pleasant, bright and colorful imagery.

    Developed and branded a rum line that took the concept of a squid or sea creature further.

    I chose to name the brand Sea Stalker because giant squids stalk their prey while hunting. The label art is in a grotesque ink splatter style, to give the illusion of the creature inking on the label, creating the image.

    The whole brand concentrates on the creature stalking pirates. The label art demonstrates the event of hunting, while the handles of the jugs mimic the movement in the label. Each jug is hand made, so they are all one of a kind. Each one is also topped and sealed with a black ink soaked cork, tying back to the theme of the creature inking.

    I created cups as a promotional piece, resembling a dissection of a tentacle. The cups, as well as the jugs, are packaged in a wooden crate with the logo laser cut into the front. The handles of the boxes are interlocked nooses, referring to one of the labels, as well as the theme of death.

    All pieces of this project were hand made from the ceramic jugs and cups, to the wooden boxes.

Black elements found in all the applications are designed to give a graphic line in the project and "break" the clean side. The Norwegian language is sometimes used in applications for travel consumers.

    The Park Hotels are well known for their impeccable taste in style and design. Their Diwali (Deepavali) celebrations have been known to be very versatile, contemporary and much looked forward to. Diwali, the festival of lights, is an important Hindu festival and is widely celebrated in India. It celebrates the story of Hindu God Rama rescuing his wife Sita from the evil clutches of Ravana and returning back home victorious.

    Smudge design Studio was asked to create a special Diwali gift hamper that would be gifted to The Park’s most valuable customers. Inspired by the epic tale, we decided to retell the Ramayana through a very contemporary yet ethnically designed gift box. Diwali being a celebration that includes a lot of fireworks, the gift hamper was designed to look like a large matchbox- a matchbox that contained explosives of the sweet kind. Inside the box were several smaller matchboxes. Each box depicted one part of the epic tale using illustrations.

    Justnuts produces organic treats that do you good. Founded by Erik and Thijs who were disappointed with other snacks, full of added sugar and all sorts of unnatural nonsense.

    We created an identity with the Justnuts squirrel for them, the collector of nuts, seeds and fruits. The individual bags are tertiary coloured and have a soft matte finish. For the box we printed the rough inside of the carton, with a wood grain print for a matte, look and feel. This results in a nice contrast. With his cheeks stuffed he sits in his nest. To make eye contact on a boring supermarket shelf.

    Brandopus Make Oats More Awesome With A Redesign For MOMA

    BrandOpus has worked with MOMA, the home of the best grab-and-go breakfasts, to redesign their brand identity and packaging. The brief was to drive meaning and personality into the MOMA identity and create an ownable and distinctive packaging design, devised to support range extension and to allow the brand to achieve its exciting plans for growth. The new identity and packaging will launch in early April.

    With a shift in the brands retail focus, from bustling station forecourts to equally busy supermarket shelves, there was a need to build on the strength of the brand within its new competitive set.

    In response to the brief, BrandOpus have developed the identity to convey the idea of a fulfilling journey. From MOMA’s early beginnings under railway arches in Deptford, to a pitch in Waterloo station, the identity captures the journey of both the brand and the busy urban commuter.

    The bright, punchy colours that make the brand distinctive have been built upon to reflect the vibrancy of MOMA, whilst aiding navigation across the wide range of flavours at the shelf.

    Paul Taylor, executive creative director, BrandOpus, comments, “MOMA is a great brand that we could really relate to. The passion and ambition behind the business has made this project an exciting and fulfilling journey. We have high hopes that the new design will carve out an even more distinct space for MOMA at fixture and beyond.”

    Tom Mercer, founder of MOMA said of working with the agency, “It’s been a pleasure working with BrandOpus; throughout the whole process they’ve felt like one of the MOMA team.  They understood the brand straight away, injecting fresh perspective and really bringing MOMA to life across all our different pack formats.  The redesign has also helped to create a buzz amongst our customers, who can’t wait to see MOMA’s new look.  We’re so excited to see the packs on shelves… not long now!”

    The new look hits the shelves of retailers including Waitrose, Ocado, J Sainsbury, Boots, Tesco, WH Smiths Travel and Booths from April 1st.

    Dimitra is a newly established Greek company that creates beauty and well-being products based on organic St. John’s wort oil. From antiquity to the present day, St John’s wort has been known as a potent plant able to cure the human body and soul.

    When it comes to products that have an almost miraculous effect, we often use the expression “one drop is enough”. This phrase provided the inspiration for the creation of the company logo which was designed as a drop concealing the capital letter “Δ”, the first letter of the name Dimitra, the ancient Greek goddess of agriculture.

    In each one of the Dimitra products, the logo accommodates a unique visual of a retro, almost nostalgic, flower illustration: the bright, yellow flower of the Hypericum Perforatum plant is intertwined with the flower of the blended essential oil (lavender, rose, birch, etc.). Equally varied is the typography, with the colour of the font corresponding to each of the secondary herb-ingredient.

    Through the design of the DIMITRA brand, we intended to establish the values of a company that not only creates its own products, but also cultivates the oils it uses. Featuring an almost "Doric" design, the packaging reflects the eco-friendly character and holistic philosophy of the Dimitra brand and its products.

    Vive, a gardening starter kit by Burpee, introduces a new way of gardening with simple steps. The bucket provides all utensils needed for entry level gardening experience: seeds, fertilizer, rake, shovel, measurement and label.

    The challenge while designing this project is to design a whole set of beginner tools for child into a minimal form, and is to reduce waste and cost.

    The unique shape of Vive is inspired from tool bucket that can be easily carried by a child and associate with them spontaneously. The imagery on the side of the Vive packaging helps consumers recognize the type of seeds, and the multiple usage tool is attached as a handle.
