the DIOTOYS - a piece of childhood
Identity and package design made for Hungarian handicraft wooden toys. Preparation with meticulous care and operational mechanism based on technical observations make the toys so special.
I applied silk screen technique for printing the materials (veneer, textile, recycled bag, wooden box packaging)
By creating the design it was an important aspect to use those kind of materials which reflect naturalness, so I chose environmentally friendly raw materials. The veneer parts of the identity are reused from the furniture industry as those were fallen or broken pieces.
All the stationery, envelope, label and other accessories are printed on recycled paper, the little bags used as wrapping made of 100% wool.

Victoria's Kitchen is a young californian start up, first launched their Almond Water in 2012. Inspired by a traditional and artisanal recipe from grandmother's kitchen, Almond Water is the perfect combination of delicate yet tasty flavors. Infused with natural extracts, flavors and a hint of sweetness, Almond Water is a refreshing alternative to lemonade or iced tea.
We brought grandmother's concept up-to-date by balancing the nostalgia of vintage produce labels with the shelf impact needed for modern packaging communication.
Pairing a lovely antique font and illustrations with a fresh background color, we gave Almond Water a vintage but modern identity.
All of these elements work together, distinguishing Almond Water as a sophisticated, refreshing beverage offering.

There were two parts to this project, an evolutionary and a revolutionary design. The purpose of the evolutionary design was to choose an existing liquor whose design might be considered dated, then rejuvenate the brand image and label design while maintaining the front, back, and neck label, and current bottle design. The purpose of the revolutionary design was to use the same brand and product line but reposition the product by creating a premium/upscale image that included a gift box or vessel.
The liquor I chose was Old Grand Dad bourbon whiskey. For an evolutionary packaging update, equity in the original typeface was maintained with mild refinements. The bust image was replaced with a younger, heartier picture for the founder to appeal to a younger clientele. The concept for the revolutionary packaging was based on how whiskey was used as currency during the American Revolution. Fine-line details mimicking the look of printed money adorn the label. The vessel was made from materials inspired by the stills to produce whiskey.

Buttercups Lingerie Bags is a project for a fictitious brand created by me. The choice of the retro style (with a modern touch) comes from the use of the pinups, which is consistent with the product - lingerie. I had total freedom while designing these bags, that's why I made them from a pure customer point of view: these are exactly the bags that I would like to get when I buy lingerie - sexy but playful! The design was printed on matte plasticized paper.
Designed by Quaker City Mercantile, United States.
After much intensive research and development, Philadelphia-based Quaker City Mercantile is thrilled to present Quinetum, a highly exclusive quinine cordial from Steven Grasse, creator of the iconic Hendrick’s Gin.
Quinetum is a unique and complex blend comprised of Cinchona Succirubra Bark, from which Quinine is derived, and a range of botanicals (4% ABV ethanol). It is designed to be a bartender’s tinkering tool when used as a cocktail ingredient or can be lengthened with soda water and combined with Hendrick’s in place of tonic.
Grasse decided to bring the curious history of quinine to life channeling the ethos of Thomas Whiffen, a renowned maker of poisons who established The Quinine Works of Battersea, London and whose likeness graces the Quinetum bottle. He was the first person to synthesize quinine in the 1800′s, which at the time was a lifesaving drug against malaria.
Hendrick’s Gin master distiller Lesley Gracie created this complexly flavored cordial, bittersweet with a slightly syrupy mouthfeel and notes of floral lime and orange zest with rose petal and lavender. Quaker City Mercantile spearheaded Quinetum’s concept and design.
The small, custom-mold glass bottle was inspired by a 1940’s-era poison bottle discovered in a London antique shop. The Quinetum bottle was designed to echo the canonical Hendrick’s Gin aesthetic, with distinctively clean, painstakingly designed packaging and a Stelvin screwcap.
The packaging I created for Hendricks 14 years ago is incredibly iconic, much loved and, now, much imitated,” says Grasse. “Therefore, there was a lot of pressure with this project to up the ante and take things to a new level. And, judging by the initial feedback we have received on this, I think we achieved that. Our goal is to put this out there in very limited quantities and keep Quinetum very selective and very rare. As rare as platinum, titanium or any other “um”.

The brief was to make a packaging design of a commemorative/special edition of a product.
I chose the old portuguese brand of canned fish Ramirez, and my idea was to develop a commemorative edition based on the three most typical Portuguese dishes: Sardines in Stew, Cod with Olive Oil and Garlic, and Tuna Roast stylish Algarve.
Each illustration tells the origin of each dish: Sardines in Stew, was a dish invented by fishermen; Cod with Olive Oil and Garlic, is the most famous dish of Portugal, there is a cod recipe for every day of the year here, and was illustrated by our typical architecture; and the Tuna Roast stylish Algarve, was illustrated by the Barril beach. Since the 70's, the fishermen were confronted with costs of economic exploration, and the remoteness from tuna on the coast. They were abandoning their anchors in the sand of this beach, and now constitutes one of the most beautiful museums landscaped. The narrative illustrated that conserves want honor this historical fact.
It's an edition that honors the old portuguese canned fish, printed in one color, on kraft paper, transmits tradition, national product, nostalgia (a very portuguese word), trust and revivalism.

This is a school project. The brief was to make a packaging design of a commemorative/special edition of a product.
I chose Heinz Baked Beans, and my idea was to develop a commemorative edition based on the contribution of heinz during the second world war to maintain food supply.
My design options were influenced by the British war propaganda and by the idea of rationing and distributing the food during the war.

A friend of mine, who is obsessed with vintage shaving products, approached me and asked if I could make him a custom travelling kit for his razor and other shaving products. Living on Canada's West Coast I spend a great deal of time outside and enjoying the natural beauty of British Columbia, so his idea of a travelling kit quickly turned into a product marketed towards the outdoorsman and camper. Most "outdoorsman" travelling kits are made of cheap fabric and contain plastic razors, and most of the time the entire kit is disposed of. I wanted to create a product that could be kept, appreciated and re-used for many years/trips to come. This kit is for the camper that has an appreciation for attention to detail, because style matters even when you're a bushman.
Designed by Grason Ratowsky of Ratowsky Creative, United States.
Grason Ratowsky of Ratowsky Creative came together with the Essential Patch team to create and develop a hip new brand identity, voice and packaging solution for the company's new line of organic aromatherapy patches.
The strategy was multilayered as the client's vision was comprised of some major design requirements. Essential Patch wanted an old-time packaging structure paired with bold color palettes to replicate their strong scented aromatherapy patches. They also wanted the design to be hip, fresh and not too earthy.
The strategy utilized match box styled paperboard packaging, flavorful typography combinations, clever caricature animations and a grid layout with an overall retro feel to embody a punchy combo of vintage and contemporary design.

From the pharmacy.
Vitis Vinifera is the Latin name of the common vine. This wine is produced in a winery in Granada (Spain) owned by a long line of pharmacists in the region.
For the packaging of this product, we wanted to recover the spirit of the old pharmacy. To achieve this, we decided on a bottle covered in a sleeve reminiscent of the traditional ceramic pharmacy jars with a vintage design and an unconventional image and colour for the wine industry. The illustration used as a label is a watercolour.

Nothing says good morning like the deep, rich aroma of freshly brewed coffee made from fresh roasted coffee beans. The nuclear community of Port Hope, Ontario was to become home of the first ever coffee roaster located within Mercury Chocolates at 24 John St.
Local owners, Darren Johns and Duncan Mackinnon knew that the magic of their beans wouldn't go far if not supported by a novel approach. At Limelight we were able to explore the universe for a suitable market position and name. As a result, Limelight turned 'nuclear' into a fresh roasted, freshly brewed positive for the company coming up with the name, Atomic Roasters. Being a startup and micro business, budgets were modest. The identity and packaging took on a “retro” look. Banners, signage, promotions and the company blog are supported by the owners' own wry wit as “space, science and exploration” puns abound.
Since launch time Atomic Roasters coffee is considered the best roasted in the community... and the micro-business appreciates its “out of this world” compliments. Furthermore, freshly brewed and counter sales of this brand are a welcome adjunct and attraction to Mercury Chocolate’s core product – hand-made truffles. It’s been a blast naming the roaster and finding a positioning within the region for this micro- business. Following through with such a fun and novel brand image, and then creating affordable packaging solutions has allowed Atomic Roasters to quickly grab the attention of the market and get pulled from the shelves. Watch while Atomic Roasters rockets its way into your home.
