    San Francisco based agency Character partnered with Uneka to execute the engineering and manufacturing portion of the packaging design. The simple elegance of a hinged box with precise layering of components and materials subtly reinforces the technology within. The box is made with Neenah premium uncoated papers. Custom dyed Molded Bagasse pulp cradles and protects the devices, revealing the unique form of the Ink and Slide. The simplicity and beauty of the package design is counter balanced by the execution of form and detail.

    Örganic Terre is a Mexican Company dedicated to the organic products development, they launched an agave honey, a beverages and food sweetener that has many health benefits. Currently the main obstacle Örganic Terre is facing is the fact that most consumers relate Agave to the main ingredient of Tequila.

    121’s challenge was to develop a very practical and attractive packaging design that communicates at first glance that the content is “Honey” and not “Agave Inulin”, its technical name. The solution was clear and we opted for a design that represents the color, textures and density of the honey through a harmonic composition of thick drops that glide through the label, simple and direct!
    Besides this design success on the shelves it also won the Bronze Award in the packaging category in the last round of the Summit Creative Awards.

    [ væn'ləwɪn ] ice cream is a New York based artisan ice cream shop which recently expands its business to pastries and coffee.

    The name originates from a Dutch word. For the sake of easy pronunciation, I use the sound mark instead of the Dutch spelling as its logo. The main idea is to convey the artisan feeling using the graphics hand sketch and vintage newspaper.

    The challenge was to design a premier luxury brand that oozes sophistication, modern and sharp, while also establishing a timeless look that will be recognised on the shelf. The client wanted a design that was especially striking and edgy. To look at what makes a timeless brand; to create Xura a symbol that is effective, striking and timeless. The bottle design most importantly must stand out from the crowd when there are so many products on the shelf already. The result is a brand that is sharp and minimalist, a look that disposes the excess science and cosmetic jargon and presents only what the customer wants to see. Xura will be launching late 2014 in the US and UK.

    Pearlfisher creates the brand strategy, identity, packaging, and website design for Just Enough of a (Very) Good Thing, a delicious new range of premium deserts.

    Pearlfisher has created the brand strategy, identity, packaging, and website design for Just Enough of a (Very) Good Thing, a new single serving desert offering for adults. Just Enough of a (Very) Good Thing is an indulgent treat available in 6 mouth-watering flavors, including Key Lime, Chocolate & Vanilla, Tiramisu and Lemon Cream.

    In a category where the design aesthetic is traditionally over indulgent and uses dark, sensual cues, the design for Just Enough of a (Very) Good Thing is purposefully light, imaginative and ingredient focused. The illustrated logotype and packaging design emphasizes the handcrafted and premium taste of the deserts. This crafted feel is extended to the design of the website, allowing a seamless transition from one brand experience to another.

    Hamish Campbell, Creative Director at Pearlfisher comments: “We have created a refreshing and unique design that showcases the high quality and flavor experience of Just Enough of a (Very) Good Thing. Bursts of color are used to emphasize flavor and taste. The colored tags on pack work to differentiate flavor as well as highlighting the thought and care that has gone into the making of each desert. The ‘J’ of the logotype has been designed as a spoon, emphasizing the moment of taste sensation when you enjoy a Just Enough of a (Very) Good Thing dessert.”

    Noel Labat-Comess, Founder of Just Enough of a (Very) Good Thing says, “Pearlfisher’s design has created an indulgent on pack experience that truly represents the care and attention that goes into each product and the premium nature of the product within. The level of attention to detail in the design sets it apart from other competitors.

    Wayward Distillation House is the only distillery in Canada using honey as the base material for their spirits, rather than the more traditional options like barley, potatoes or corn. Their packaging needed to emphasize this without appearing as though the products taste like honey (because they don't).

    We took Wayward's packaging beyond a simple front/back label and created a housing for the bottle that illustrates the 'Unruly' partnership that exists between this Wayward distiller and the bees.

    The custom vector illustration on these bottles is sure to set them apart in a retail setting and should help create significant buzz about their products as they build up to their launch.

    A Kickstarter project for our Black Book Manifesto Typographic Deck. We wanted to design a deck of Typographic playing cards that pushed the boundaries of type design on cards yet remain usable, aesthetically beautiful, and where every single card is unique and a piece of art in its own right.

    Our objective with the tuck boxes was twofold, on the one hand we wanted the combined materials and processes to ooze refined luxury and top quality craftsmanship, while on the other hand we wanted the external designs to abstractly mirror the cards within without using type. We used embossed and foiled lines on the tuck boxes as the abstract expanding lines of text shown on the inside cards which is the foundation for each design.

    Orphan Barrel is a family of small-batch bourbons sourced from forgotten barrels and recast through evocative brand stories and best in-class design. The branding for Orphan Barrel remains consistent with each launch to announce all variants as members of the family, but the individual issues have their own personalities with animals that express the unique character of each liquid and name.

    We were asked to design and create a survival kit set for a chosen theme. The goal of this project was to creatively fit the design aesthetic to the theme.

    With the readlly easy access that we have to medical information nowadays, and the many opportunities that we have for auto diagnosis, I decided to create a survival kit for the hypochondriac in all of us.

    Instead of going for a contemporary look, I decided to design a throw back to the 1800's and their snake oil charmers; the ones that would come to remote towns in order to sell their magic medicines that would cure all kinds of illness.

    I created a type based logo reminiscent of the era along with some frames to keep it contained. I used old fashioned medical illustrations from gray's anatomy to give it an air of medical authenticity. I also used vellum to print all the graphics in order to get a more a matte finish. The vellum also provided a little bit of bleeding, making it more old fashioned and distressed.

    All the labels are tagged with their appropriate contents, but they also have a little tagline as a pun (for example, the Eye Drops are to be used in case of Pink Eye…but that could also be a sign for Glaucoma! The Sunscreen is to be used for skin redness… but it also could be a sign for Melanoma!)

    Hypochondriac Survival Kit is full of remedies for the simplest diseases, because it may be nothing, but who knows…. you may die from it! :)

    About the Company:
    Monocacy Brewing Company (MBC) is a brewery located in the heart of Frederick, Maryland — an area already known for its strong craft brewing history. MBC needed an identity and branding that would appeal to a national audience, but also resonate with the local Frederick community. We worked closely with their team to create a mark that embodies the spirit of the brewery and the rich history of Frederick. The iconic Monocacy Aqueduct on the C&O Canal became the perfect symbol to represent their new brand attributes — trust, quality, strength, and craftsmanship — all while paying homage to their Maryland roots.

    The Project:
    Monocacy Brewing Company asked us to develop a packaging system for their labels, six-packs, and cases. The objective was to differentiate their beer from the competition, while staying true to their brand attributes. Our solution uses a consistent batch-style label paired with a custom etched illustration to individualize each style of beer. Together, the system creates an iconic family of beer that clearly represents the MBC brand.

    At Yield, we produce a range of goods, from bags to products for the home. Our pieces are defined by playful simplicity and honest materials--functional goods with a refreshing appearance.

    We design our packaging to be just what it needs to be and no more. We aim to balance our need for flexibility and small product runs with the desire to create striking and memorable presentations.

    The Geo Stands are sold individually and in sets, so each piece is packaged in a drawstring bag and the sets are encased in a slider box. The throws are held together by letterpress sleeve.
