    Targeting the USA market, this range of highly collectible herbal infused African brandies depict a big African cat on each of the 4 variants produced - Honeybush, Buchu, Ginger Root and Hanepoot.

    Sourced from Saverglass in France, the Helios bottle's round profile was the perfect canvas to show leopard, lion, cheetah and lynx. Each cat is reverse fired on the bottle to magnify through the liquid. Tom Nevin, respected author of African fables, was tasked with the copywriting duties, bringing each cat’s tale to life.

    A series of ultra-premium wine labels for Origin Wines in the Stellenbosch region. As the wines are Fairtrade accredited, we decided to champion the vineyard workers on the front label.

    A highly detailed custom engraving illustrates the worker's tireless contribution from harvest, to pressing, barrel aging and distribution. Wines in the range come from 3 origins - Argentina, Chile & South Africa, as represented by their flags, with Roman numerals indicating the year in which each country's vineyard was established.

    The Other Oil - EVO Design by At Pace Design and Advertising

    Our brief to create original packaging design for a new Extra Virgin Olive Oil produced by The Getty Family in South Africa and the only element to the design brief that was mandatory was to ensure that we used the “Old Oil Logo” from yesteryear. As a result the whole design began to take on a deliberately retro feel, including the choice of colour, typography etc, all done locally.

    Repcillin Facial Moisturisers with Crocodile Oil

    UK-based company '40075' appointed South Africa-based designer Amy Claire Thompson to design packaging and labelling for cosmetic brand 'Repcillin' after her success in designing the brand's new logotype. Combining the healing benefits of pure Nile Crocodile Oil with other high-performing ingredients, this versatile product range offers authentic and highly effective skincare solutions to various skin issues and conditions. Based on a growing demand for natural traditional remedies to restore skin to its optimum health and vitality, the brief was to create packaging distinctive enough to attract attention, that is a 100% recyclable to promote low resin weight PET jars and bottles.

    The brief for this project was is to create a brand as well as a graphic solution for a new range of fresh bread packaging.

    Summary/Concept and benefit:
    Eazyloaf is a easy-to-carry, perfect in size fresh bread range specially designed for students' specific needs and unique lifestyles. As a student I know that most students never finish an entire loaf of bread and it usually ends up in the trash because it has gone stale or mouldy. The result is that students tend to stop buying bread. I have decided to focus on this gap in the market. To address this problem, I decided so create a smaller loaf that is about half the size of a regular loaf. This way, there is a better chance that the bread won't go bad before it is finished. I did further research on students needs, lifestyles and activities and decided to focus on three main activities in order to position Eazyloaf as part of the target audience’s lifestyle.

    These are: Sport (active); Work and Fun (play/party). In each category I identified specific needs of students associated with the activity, for example for studying and working late one needs energy and concentration and that little bit of extra brain power.

    Bread range:
    Sport: a Wholewheat bread- extra protein and energy for active students that does sport or other training Work: a Low GI bread with vitamins and energy for that extra brainpower

    Fun: a Wholegrain loaf that’s high in fibre and has a yummy flavour

    The Eazyloaf logo was inspired by the shape of the iconic plastic bread tag that is used to seal bread bags. The shape is a combination of the bread tag and the shape of a bread slice as well as a heart shape to indicate the health aspect of the bread. Design: The dominant graphic on the packaging is a circular crest pattern done in a vector icon style that is light, fresh and modern. The vector icons illustrates and indicates the activities and objects associated with each specific lifestyle category. The sides of the bread are see-through allowing the consumer to see the contents and be reassured of the product’s freshness.The design is new and exciting and will stand out from its competitors.

    The colours I choose for my bread packaging range is yellow, green and red. Research showed that these colours are very appetizing and thus is it ideal for food packaging. The colours are young, fresh and vibrant which relates to students and will have good shelf impact that will attract students. The three colours are also used to differentiate between the Wholewheat, Low GI and Wholegrain loaf.

    The concept for this project was to create a South African inspired craft beer. Traditionally Zulu women make their own beer that the men drink at festivals or weddings. A Zulu festival beer was created, making use of traditional colours and symbols. The beer named “Bhuti” refers to a brother, bro, or guy friend. The masks on each of the bottles refer to the traditional masks that were used at Zulu festivals, also inspired by the wood-carved Zulu masks that can be bought in KwaZulu-Natal. A triangle was used in the logo. A zigzag pattern was also used in the design. This is depicted from the traditional beer baskets and means masculinity. Each colour used has a specific meaning within the Zulu culture. When a colour is used next to white it gives it a positive meaning. White represents spiritual love. Black indicates rebirth, and yellow wealth. Lastly red indicates love and strong emotion. Traditionally two types of beer are made, namely a darker sorghum beer and a lighter maize beer, thus the reason for making a series of two types of beer. Promotional items include a cap, T-shirt, bottle opener, as well as coasters.

    This was a redesign of an existing ready-to-heat range targeted at customers who are conscious about their weight and their calorie/kilojoule intake. The brief was to make the packaging more modern and informative.

    The response was to devise a design with an expert/functional handwriting that still fits with the Woolworths brand. This was achieved through the use of a strong structure with lines, a white background and clean, simple photography, which also give it a health-conscious look and feel.

    Creating a hierarchy of information was also key to helping the customer shop and this range. Because she looks for the calorie/kilojoule count even before she considers the product name and description, we used large numbers. For the range name we played with the weight of the font starting from bold to light to illustrate weight loss in subtle way. This range has been very successful and it has been extended to other areas.

    South African retailer Clicks felt that our original design for ‘The Fruit Collection’ range required updating and was also keen for it to have a younger look and feel.

    We decided to take a revolutionary approach to the re-design, building from the ground up we reviewed the ranges tone of voice, illustration style, typography and package engineering. We introduced stock photographic elements to give the fruit a fresher 3D visual. We needed to catch the consumer’s attention and recreate the range to have an eye catching shelf appeal.

    The packaging is a true reflection of the product it contains, a natural, wholesome, family favourite. The recycled paper embodies anew organic trend within the food industry. Consumers are more likely to purchase products that are (or appear to be) as natural as possible with no added preservatives, which Cape Cookies prides itself on.

    A well known insight into the product is the fact that rusks live together with coffee or tea and are best enjoyed when dunked. Using this insight we highlighted how Cape Cookies rusks are perfect dunking rusks in a quirky and fun way. Different dunking techniques have been listed on the back of the pack for people to have fun when dunking rusks.

    A clean, untreated style was achieved for The Natural Collection by using botanical drawings to illustrate the chosen fragrance, and simple typography that was redrawn to give it a worn looking identity. The deliberate choice of a textured paper stock then further emphasized the style by giving the impression of the products being wrapped in a linen cloth.

    Each fragrance of hand and nail cream in the Touch range uses strong imagery to tell its own design story. Tight architecture and a constant colour palette then act as a framework to maintain continuity on shelf. Metal effect 60ml tubes stood up in a specifically designed Point of Sale unit further add to its unique shelf appeal, and three tubes packaged together make it a stunning instant gift.

    Akdov is an ‘underground’ alcohol. Its very name is cryptic – the word ‘vodka’ spelt backwards. Designed with tongue firmly in cheek, the bottle takes its cues from old-fashioned poison products. The ultimate aim is to create a brand that is coveted only by those in the know.
