Beyoncé RISE

(4 years ago)
Hirst Pacific Ltd, a strategic branding and design consultancy based in New York City, recently announced the newly release Beyoncé RISE fragrance: "The tall elegant lines of the stately glass bottle of the new Beyoncé RISE fragrance emulates the trajectory of the international superstar’s ability and will to rise above it all, to reach greater levels of extraordinary achievement. The undulating gold collar flows around the soft shoulders of the bottle evoking a melodic sense of rhythm and Beyoncé’s energy, being in perpetual motion. The cap’s sculptural cluster of golden crystals ascends ever higher, crowning triumphantly the form below and like an exploding cosmic supernova exudes the iconic performer’s strength and fortitude. The Beyoncé RISE fragrance bottle with its shiny gold elements and crystal clear glass, its hard and soft edges, combines optimism with sheer elegance and perfectly balances the resilient spirit and sexy femininity of Beyoncé the artist."        Related Posts:CocoonLéon Courville Vigneron

Tart Blanc

(4 years ago)
Tart Blanc is an artisanal bakery in Singapore specializing in beautiful tarts featuring inventive flavor and texture combinations. Manic Design created haman-made, paper kraft look for their branding and packaging. "The owners, a pair of sisters one of whom is the baker, tell us that they dream of multi-layered tarts exploding with flavors and textures. To underline the 'tartistry' of the baked goods, we came up with the name 'tart blanc' which is inspired by 'carte blanche', which means blank paper and expresses the idea that anything is possible. For the packaging and namecards, we chose an unusual and raw grey substrate as an alternative to the ubiquitous kraft to hint at the human-made, small batch nature of the bakery. It took us a very long time to convince the box maker to make the boxes in this material but we think that the results are worth every minute trying to get it right."        Related Posts:Food Packaging for JetKonnect AirlinesNewbies
