I.C.O.N Hair Care Products

(8 years ago)
We applaud this design for its production value, from the unique dieline of the bag, to the 2 color print with UV gloss. The different thickness and angles of the strokes in the lines used complimented the shape of the bag really well, creating a dynamic and bold piece. More of I.C.O.N after the jump!

The Swing Blade pencil sharpener, though not the [...]

Student Spotlight: Pluto Skin Care by Bang & Olufsen

(8 years ago)
 " The assignment is to conceptualize a skin care line for an existing brand that is currently not on the skin care market. Students are expected to understand the company philosophy, target audience, and overall brand aesthetics. The deliverables include seven skin care items and a point-of-purchase display. During the research, I discovered that people who purchase Bang & Olufsen products seldom seek for merely its technical quality, but also the design, user interaction and emotional appeal. Pluto skin care is targeted exclusively towards the high-income sector and design-savvy men that are 40 years old and above."
