    Absolut Rainbow Flag Edition – Taking Pride In Diversity
    Absolut Vodka is a brand of vodka, produced near Åhus, in southern Sweden. Absolut is the third largest brand of alcoholic spirits in the world and is sold in 126 countries. From the very start of the brand in the clubs of NYC, Absolut and the LGTB community have had a strong relationship. Since the year 2006, Absolut has been supporting the LGTB community with a number of beautifully designed limited editions releases.

    Although Absolut has previously released a number of limited editions, the brand wanted to show their strong and long commitment to the LGTB community through creating a permanent Absolut edition. Pond Design was commissioned to design an Absolut Rainbow flag edition, proudly carrying the LGTB rainbow colours.

    The idea was to create a sense of energy, activity and a passion for the cause. We wanted the Pride flag to feel as if it’s been newly painted and sprayed on the bottle. After experimenting with numerous techniques and tools such as brushes, rollers and spray cans, we were finally happy with the results. The Pride-flag colours show visible, hand-made “imperfections” that signal action, immediacy and involvement.

    The Farmer’s Daughter captures sweet heat in their new line of hot pepper jelly

    Lafayette, LA – Founded by husband and wife duo Primo and Kara, The Farmer’s Daughter has launched a line of hot pepper jellies that prove a little sugar pairs well with a little spice. Primo, developer of the “7 Pot Primo,” arguably the hottest pepper in the world, and Kara, a steward of traditional Southern Louisiana cuisine, combine their expertise and passions to master the complex flavors of sweet and heat.

    The duo partnered with the team at The Brandit to create a package design that captures both the traditional taste of the recipe as well as their “halo and horns” approach to life—and peppers. "The Brandit unlocked our artistic ambitions,” said Troy Primo, Co-founder of Primo’s Peppers, “and visually captured the scope and spirit of our product. Harnessing our minds-eye, they took a great tasting product and made it visibly delightful!"

    The label designs showcase the unique fruit and pepper ingredients with intertwining illustrations based on each flavor of jelly. Primo and Kara’s attention to quality and consistency is captured in the intricate detail of the artwork. And the vibrant colors represent the complex flavors contained in each jar.

    “There’s a beautiful complexity to these hot pepper jelly products,” said Matt Ebbing, Associate Creative Director at The Brandit. “Our design team set out to capture all the intricate depth of the product, but had to keep it approachable. The result is a hypnotic wonder that looks special, but not out of place at the grocery store, and yet can totally hold it’s own with gourmet foodies. “

    The three jellies now available are: Fig & Habanero, Citrus & Spice, and Strawberry & Cayenne. All of the flavors make excellent marinades, sauces, or, if you just need to spice up your day, simply serve with cream cheese as a snack.

    The main goals of Luxury Skin Cells range products project were:
    -Creating an image with its own personality, consistent with the product quality standards and the “Luxury Skin Cells” range concept.
    -Conveying these attributes: elegance, sophistication, gentleness, exclusivity.

    Usually finishes like stamping, embossing, shine and metallic finishes, and so on, are different resources added to the design in order to add premiumness to the product look. Here the idea was to use all those finishing resources as the design and layout key elements . On the one hand, an organic metallic shape which evokes the idea of cells and that transforms on each box to personalise each of the products. On the other hand, the text is blind embossed without ink, giving the “cells” the maximum focal point of the design. The jar has been designed with colours and forms in harmony with the range.

    During my sustainable design course, I was tasked to create a sustainable project. My class partner, Cara Bono, and I chose to design the packaging for a surf watch, which was originally a Rip Curl product. We designed our package with a minimalist style to limit the printing needed, and printed on recycled chipboard to work with the company’s style and sustainable based practices. Our final design is our most sustainable version, using a very small amount of ink by only having the necessary elements on the package. This design is very modern and minimalist, fitting in well with our product and male demographic. The final design was printed on the 100% recycled chipboard, helping be more sustainable.

    Fluorescence I. is a unique identification handbook about fluorescent sea animals. The book contains nine digitally painted animals with their fluorescent pattern and an accurate description. These biofluorescent animals looks normal under white light, but, under high energy blue light the fluorescent molecules on their bodies starts to "glow". On this book before each illustration you'll find a half transparent page with the fluorescent pattern of the animal. By merging the two pages together, you'll able to see exactly where does these animals has fluorescent molecules on their bodies.

    The illuminating phenomenon of bioluminescence is scattered across the tree of life. Biofluorescence, on the other hand, is not a chemical reaction and biofluorescent organisms do not give off light from their own power source. Instead, biofluorescent organisms absorb light, transform it, and eject – or “re-emit” – it as a different color. When specialized fluorescent molecules are “excited” by high-energy light (like blue light), they lose a fragment of the light energy and release the rest at a lower-energy wavelength (like green).
