Springetts were asked to develop a range of gift caddies for Williamson Tea and transform its elephant branding into a unique three dimensional icon. The distinctive shape gives the brand strong on-shelf presence and powerfully links the caddy with the brand logo (an elephant). The launch of a range of elephant caddies, each with different graphics and characters, allowed the brand to appeal to a wider audience and for the caddies to become collectible items.
The brief was to create a bilingual identity for the British Council fashion film exhibition. The main idea expresses the dynamics and magic of cinematography with the help of images only. Inspired by the optical effect, known as motograph, and experimental photoworks by a famous fashion photographer Erwin Blumenfeld, students created a font and designed a system that reflects the nature of the exhibition and highlights the role of Great Britain in the development of fashion films.
Barb is a perfume brand for men, which stands out against others on the market crowded with trendy and glossy flasks. It reflecs the man’s personality, savage power and courage. The brand has fluid identity and do not use logo in its common sense, for it contradicts the philosophy of Barb, the philosophy of free and fearless spirit. Barb doesn't hang tags and doesn't attach anybody to the brand. The man, himself, is the brand. Barb is the absolute extension of it's owner's personality.
When Sook was young, she saw a pretty bird on the mountain but bird quickly flew away, leaving only sound behind. She looked up in the sky to find the bird, but all she could see was tree branches and forest. The bird kept on singing, but she had no idea where it was. From very young, bird was the tree branches and big forest to her. This experience made her to visualize the sound of birds like forest. The sound of bird relaxes mind and body. This caught her attention, and she combined this with mandala, which visually represents healing and meditation.
Music is constantly chaotic and evolving, but always personal. This was the inspiration behind this generative system which fuses the artist’s identity with some of his musical journey’s aspects. The system fostered the team’s attempt to architect DjSarhi’s brand identity by capturing momentary tales of his music, whilst representing them in ‘Rorschach blot’ inspired ‘VIBEs’. By algorithmically mixing various seed inputs relevant to the musician, the system can iterate unlimited generations of curated design motifs – each telling a different and unique story.
This packaging is unique as it takes a conventional coffee bag and places a box style lid over the top to deliver a flat surface providing both functional stackability and large format space for branding and product differentiation. The lid itself employs winged engineering to hold it in place. The wings reverse fold up against the side panels and then catch in place in the fold of the bag thus ensuring the lid can not slip off. It provides the consumer with strong brand messaging and product differentiation defined by a distinctive colour and numbering system.
