    A founding brand in the botanical fragrance industry, Thymes saw an opportunity to introduce a new line of bath and body products that would appeal to a broad audience of fragrance enthusiasts. Meant to inspire discovery, the Studio collection offers a fresh, contemporary presence while also supporting Thymes’ credentials as artisans of fine fragrance.

    Thymes products are created to be beautiful, an invitation to discover beauty in everyday life. The Studio Collection features six fragrances inspired by botanicals and rooted in nature. Each fragrance collection is designed to marry familiarity with intrigue, and is presented in a line of products crafted with a touch of charm.

    To better understand what makes their products special, we talked to Thymes management, stakeholders, fragrance experts and product representatives. Their insights helped us develop a clear strategy which inspired design of a new packaging system.

    Our goal was to elevate the presentation of Thymes products – refreshed, modern and strongly branded – with a system that would work across an evolving line of unique fragrances. The Thymes “T” serves as a unifying design element that also strengthens the brand’s presence. The “T” is diecut to show the pattern underneath, revealing each fragrance collection’s personality.

    The new look and feel influenced packaging materials, product details, retail display and more.

    A new project for The Empanada Kitchen (a young gastronomic company dedicated to make empanadas).

    Following the spirit that characterises it: "Simple things done well”, we decided to use noble typographies to generate an impact over the competition and maintain perdurability over time.

    The sauces:
    Chimi: Use it to marinade your bbq meats, pour it straight over your roast meats and veggies, add it to your stir-fries, mix with mince to make meat patties or with eggs to make omelettes.

    Bagnetto: Typical from the Piedmont region of Italy. AMAZINGLY good with braised and grilled meats, drizzled over crushed boiled potatoes, and can be enjoyed on toasted bread or as a dip.

    Pica oil: This infused oil matures for a month to intensify the aroma and unique flavour. Try it on eggs, pizza, grilled meats or add it to vinaigrettes, soups, and marinades.

    The Challenge
    Guangdong Foods decided to refresh its Ji Xiang range of products to further enhance its strong focus on the food service businesses. The challenge was to revive interest in the product range while maintaining the strong tradition and heritage that is associated with Ji Xiang.

    Over 26 years Of Quality Products
    Since Guangdong Foods was established in 1987, the company has mainly dealt with a wide variety of food products. As a professional and experienced wholesaler and food supplier, Guangdong Foods has supplied quality food to local retail shops and to the F&B industry.

    The Solution
    Culture and heritage came together when Mojo Red embarked on this journey. We took an in-depth approach, researching imperial dishes and creating strong cultural attachments to the visual elements in the package. The new identity utilizes a Chinese-style banner which anchors the logo, bringing the eye to the product name in a readable font, and then drawing the consumer’s gaze to the picture of the dish at the bottom. The background motifs on each can were created by scanning table cloth patterns to create a traditional feel. We also wanted to depart from the usual cluttered layout of most Chinese canned food products, simplifying the Ji Xiang product range.

    The result was a new visual identity, a redefined brand architecture, a typographic style and a colour system that reflected the Ji Xiang brand while improving the visibility of the different SKUs.
    All in all, the new design improves visibility of the different SKUs and further enhancing the Ji Xiang brand.

    JDO launches premium hair care platform for Dove in the US

    JDO Brand Design & Innovation has created premium pack designs for Unilever’s new ‘Dove Advanced Hair Series,’ a premium tier of products sitting above the core Dove hair care range.

    The new platform consists of a technically superior portfolio of products which, when married with Dove’s superior care, provides tailored treatments for specific hair need states. The new collections contain advanced weightless moisture formulas that combine luxurious ingredients, designer fragrances and beautiful packaging.

    First to launch is Dove Oxygen Moisture, which delivers moisture plus volume to fine hair and Dove Pure Care Dry Oil that nourishes hair making it silky, but without leaving it greasy or heavy. The Dove Oxygen Moisture collection contains an advanced formulation with Oxyfusion Technology - Oxygen-fused moisturizing ingredients that deliver a balance of moisture and volume to instantly and evenly disperse throughout the hair. The end result is bouncy, full-looking hair that is delicately smooth and easy to manage. In addition, the new Dove Pure Care Dry Oil collection is designed to provide hair with nourishment and silkiness without weighing hair down. Each collection includes shampoo, conditioner, post wash and styling treatments. Unilever tasked JDO with creating a premium set of designs, establishing a platform leveraging the Dove brand and showcasing its expertise in hair care.

    The resulting packs feature beautiful soft pastel hues that introduce the different need states. The shampoo products boast a semi transparent gradient which hero’s the product format, whilst the conditioner products remain a pure and beautiful white. A unique icon in gold foil was designed for each need state and transparent caps tinted in the respective complimentary colour complete the design. The platform launched in the US in January.

    Tim Jebb, principal and founder of JDO said, “The new design creates a beautiful premium presentation, white plus a hint of colour, allowing an integration of core Dove to the new platform and collections.”

    Renato Rossi, global brand director, Dove hair luxury at Unilever commented, “ JDO’s new premium pack designs represent a big step change for Dove. The new platform provides a much more premium offering from the core Dove hair care range and will allow us to bring the next generation of Dove hair care technology to a broader consumer base.”

    Dove, manufactured by Unilever, is the No. 1 personal wash brand in the US. One in every three households uses a Dove product that includes beauty bars, body washes, face care, deodorants, body mists, hair care and styling aids.
