Studio Spotlight: Container
is a unique firm with offices in Australia and China. With a focus on packaging and branding for the beauty industry, they not only develop the packaging and branding, they manufacture their designs as well. Here's a selection of recent works:
product packaging: "For USPA’s 'Supernatural' hair care range, the package design needed to express their philosophy of combining age-old botanical wisdom with the latest chemistry. The twist-cap extending up and out of the bottles represents nature and growth while it’s translucency reveals the technology of the mechanism within."
: "A premium brand from a family with over a century of skincare experience. Container was commisioned to develop an identity and packaging that reflected both the heritage and grand-daughter Rebecca Körner’s wish for a modern multi-tasking range. Soon after its launch Körner was awarded 'Best New Beauty Product' by Wallpaper* magazine and is now available through Harvey Nichols, Colette, Henri Bendel and other leading stores."
Original & Mineral
Hair care product packaging: "O&M are pioneers of ammonia free colour technology. To help the brand come front of house Container were commisioned to produce a new identity and deliver packaging that reflected their offer of salon professional results without harsh chemicals. The forms developed for the wet range (right) are reminiscent of milk bottles giving a visual cue to the formulations within - that they are clean, natural & nourishing. The styling products (above) make a bold statement that helps to create visual tension when merchandised with O&M’s other products on shelf."
"A stock range developed with HCP - 'Radii' is an elegant update to a classic configuration - a family of lipsticks and various sized compacts. Each component allows for decorative inserts (shown here as black) to be applied onto a structural base. This feature allows for variation in colour, texture & material creating numerous individual styles at minimal cost to the customer."
