Packaging Stories: One of Those

I like the concept: perfumes based on 8 elements from the Periodic Table – hydrogen, helium, lithium, carbon, oxygen, sulphur, mercury and curium. And then comes the original packaging, which is a tangible example of the “Less is more” rule.

Packaging Stories: 1000 Acres Vodka

Two of the most memorable ad campaigns that I liked while growing up were those for Absolut and Lavazza. I probably first saw some of them in my father’s Photo magazines. I used to skim over the text, as it was in French, and pause for longer on the photos. And those ads popped out. Rich in textures, forms, colours, an intriguing mix of high fashion and abstract verging on absurd contexts.

Those were two ordinary products, a drink in a clear glass bottle with a pretty streamlined shape and a coffee pack. But the ads added a new layer, a story…

Packaging can also do this, create a story or make the brand memorable.

Björk & Berries

Some more Swedish scents that I would love to wear: Dark Rain and White Forest by Björk & Berries. A great combination of intense and provocative fragrance notes, intriguing product names and clean packaging.

Dark Rain Collection

Dark Rain is an earthy and wet scent of wood and amber inspired by the first rainy autumn day, when “your skin is still sunkissed and the ground still warm but with the dark rain coming and the sound of the wind blowing in the trees you know summer will soon be over.”

Minimalist Packaging

When it comes to packaging, more and more companies opt for minimalist labelling and simple design, especially in skin care lines. It makes the products feel clean, fresh and unpretentious. Plus, packaging that doesn’t distract from the product implies that the product itself can stand the test of quality. Right?

Pretty Im/practical

I like to believe that in general I am a pretty practical person guided by the principle that form should follow function and that good design can turn even the most prosaic object into something unconventional and fun to use (as the disguised example below). But I admit that once in a while I give in and indulge in impracticality. Especially when it comes in such a nice packaging as these Fornasetti candles below.
