One of Twelve

(4 years ago)
Designed by Anagrama, One of Twelve is a brand of products that showcase art from emerging and established artists in Australia, focusing particularly on Aboriginal design. The products include high-quality silk scarves, notebooks, ceramics, cushion covers and sketchbooks, but they will always be evolving, adding new artists, designs and products to keep the brand fresh and up to date. "Our design proposal draws inspiration from the use of lines, dots and colors found in traditional Aboriginal art. The logotype is a simple alphanumeric play of words and numbers that ties in perfectly with the system of dots. There are 12 dots in total for every piece of stationery, but only one out of the twelve is bright orange."        Related Posts:Capsule Holiday PuttyAlcoholidays Calendar 2014

Jasmie Pearl Tea Co.

(4 years ago)
Jasmine Pearl Tea Co. was undergoing a transformation, so the company contacted the bright minds at Relevant Studios to help. The redesigned packaging positions them as a premium, yet approachable tea company. To do this, Relevant Studios used recyclable canisters, lids and even bags that can be composted. The text; however, retains that premium quality, with the font being reminiscent of 1950s household products such as sugar and flour. For coloring, earthy tones were used, emphasizing the recyclable nature of Jasmine Pearl Tea Co. and the fact that the brand is as gentle on the environment as possible. The redesign by Relevant Studios was a success, as the packaging exudes a high-class and premium quality look, but the eco touch makes it more accessible and consumer-friendly.        Related Posts:Sinning Hand WhiskeyThe Wu - Limited Edition Wu Tang Album 

Dirty Linen

(4 years ago)
Designed by Planeta Design, Dirty Linen is a premium bed linen brand that offers relaxed and fashionable bed linen with a playful and naughty twist. "For packaging we wanted something special, a packaging that could draw attention on the shelves and that spoke directly to the customer. In order to do so we created a clean yet bold design with a lot of attitude. It is simple and attractive and has that little extra to it with all of the stamps and labels. The images used on the labels are both informative and brand building and gives a glimps of what it is like in the world of Dirty Linen.  Dirty Linen believes the bed is a place for fun and shouldn't be made with boring bedding. We couldn't agree more!"        Related Posts:House Industries & Heath Ceramics ClocksPams Laundry Powder

It provides a professional, discrete and practical alternative through natural methods. Its simple system, easy to use and non-invasive, is conformed by an oral thermometer, a nutritional supplements programme, exercise routines and a smartphone app which functions as the system’s hub – all providing exact, timely and personalised information. "We developed a visual language that speaks directly to modern women, who are at one with both technology and with the simplicity of digital interfaces. With the identity created for Ovatemp we want to communicate a simplicity which is then also transmitted through its packaging and other applications, along with other core brand values such as hygiene, trust, modernity and technology. The texts developed for the brand transmit a human approach and kindness, guiding women through the system’s use."        Related Posts:Xylo EyewearFreshRealm Vessel
