After we designed the relaunch for Schauma baseline in 2018 for our long-term client Schwarzkopf, we now developed the packaging design for Schaumas Limited Edition „Scentsational Fragrance“ in 2019.
We were asked to develop a diverse and playful design concept to complement the new baseline design.
The new limited edition should create a visually emotional scent experience and follow the market trends with a catchy, bold and colorful packaging design.
Focusing on the fragrance notes, we chose an illustration style, that gives consumers the eye-catching scent experience, that Schauma has asked for. Colors and contrasts within the visuals were key to be as eye-catching as the shampoo shelf requires. Surely, the key elements, that we had developed within the Schauma relaunch stayed. Such as the round effect foil and newly centered information. It was very clear from the beginning on, that what we needed to do was exchanging the model as a key visual with the ingredients and make those the main actor. Also, we added the range name and the fragrance name in a playful typo to catch the new consumers‘ attention. On top of the new key visuals, we added some lovable illustrated outlines at the bottom of the label for the extra emotional kick.

Schwarzkopf Tone Supreme was launched in 2019. It is specialized for mature woman with grey hairs. Especially for those who are afraid that hair coloring looks too artificial with the years.
Launching a coloration packaging design which reflects the lifestyle of the modern mature woman, who is interested in a clean appearance. And therfore, she is looking for a truly natural looking color touch.
– Differentiate design from existing coloration standards
– Visualize new gradual toning & gentleness for hair and scalp
– Address mature women with grey or white hair who want a natural color result
Certainly, it was most important to catch the attention of the modern consumer 50+ with a modern design approach. So the design should present new vitality and refreshed lifestyle of the elderly.
For Tone Supreme we developed a totally new model approach communicating the enjoyment of life.
In addition, the color code consists of white, light ash tones and rose gold. And in combination with noble marble structures and a color touch of purple, the design creates a premium appearance of lightness and transparency. This captures the main benefits of Tone Supreme and empowers the RTB, which is discreet, light and gentle. Besides, the intense but yet sophisticated purple color creates the strong contrast that is needed within the coloration shelf. So, it offers modernity in a pale shelf section of grey covering products.
In conclusion, the clear design structure offers modern simpleness and clarity for the elderly consumer.
In 2019 Schwarzkopf launched the new packaging design for their global brand Schauma. The trusted hair care brand has a history of over 80 years and is traditionally providing hair strength and care for the entire family. In 2019 the brand got a new face, developed with baries design.
– Rejuvenate to a modern, eye-catching and lovable brand
– Revitalize the traditionally natural concept by stressing natural ingredients, vegan formulas & vitality
– Refine to be more emotional and family-oriented
– Differentiate family member‘s in packaging design (women, men, teens & kids)
– Unify global portfolio of almost 100 SKU‘s but stay colorful
– Strengthen brand impact and enhance flow of information on packaging label
The “vegan formulas“ icon is key element to convey the natural concept to the thoughtful user.
Key of the packaging design relaunch is the complete reorganization of the label, which primarily means the innovation of the circle and transformation into the centered design. This design step conveys a more emotional appeal and clusters the label information.
On top, the circles pop out with colored refinements.
To keep the brand‘s high recognition value, we kept the traditional model on top. Still, we set a highlight with the new model, that catches attention with her vital, natural smile and hair. Not only is the label reorganized, but we also unified the portfolio by switching individual bottle and cap colors for harmonized look.
Every SKU‘s got it‘s own new, natural ingredient icon to stress the naturalness. In addition, we stressed the natural concept with the „vegan“ icon, that was developed for the Schauma shampoos. Even the sticker on top supports with it‘s unconventional shape, that fits the bottle naturally.

In 2018 Schwarzkopf launched their Gliss Kur influencer packaging. This hair care special editions were designed in collaboration with the influencer Anna-Maria Damm, Valentina Pahde and Yvonne Pferrer.

Consequently, we created young and trendy hair care packaging designs with the girls individual style, that attract young beauty lovers. Therefore, the designs show each influencers’ personal passion for beauty:
Big city life, blossom elegance and travel happiness should be key messages to attract the millennium generation.
The Gliss Kur influencer packagings are connected by familiar design elements. The key messages are written in boxes, that are refined with golden highlights.
Innovation driven future.
By Joana-Maria Bauchwitz.
A growing green consumer conscience leads to an innovation pressure on established cosmetics manufacturers. Many beauty brands have understood that without a sustainable masterplan in packaging and formula, they will not persist in the future beauty market.
A product must be completely thought out, which of course must also be reflected in the design of the packaging. Packaging is the emotional carrier and representative of product ideology. The consumer reflects himself in the message of the product and is persuaded after the FMOT (first moment of truth) and convinced by secondary packaging information and haptics. Keywords such as “biodegradable”, “PCR” (Post Consumer Recycled), “natural ingredients”, “free from” or certificates from prestigious institutes underline the implemented environmental idea. The consumer understands what is good for the environment, is also good for me.
Recycling and sustainability
Recycling is still a main factor. Sustainable innovations in the field of materials and filling communicate a conscious approach to the environment and offer potential for the explorer. Especially the material-related innovations in sustainability combined with functional and efficient application solutions convince the customer of the product’s added value. Application time, practicability and experience factor are intrinsically important and make the difference. A product must proof what it promises and show demonstrable results. The challenge for beauty R&D departments will rise, which can already be seen in the steady budget growth of recent years.
Speed to market.
The resulting product innovations and trends only become valuable through a rapid market placement.
Young digital beauty start-ups have understood this. With limited editions and cross-channel marketing, they grow up to three times faster as established industry players and serve as innovation leaders. The consumer is convinced by natural, resource-saving and energy-yielding products and the manufacturer sells authentic products.
Published 28.04.2019 in the Creativ Verpacken magazin.
In 2019 Schwarzkopf released the new hair coloration brand „Only Love“.
– Create the first Peace & Love Color: Good vibes formula & intense color for bold colors to believe in
– Address the young and diverse target group with expressive, fun & self-confident design – Be bold and revolutionary
For Only Love we designed an eye-catching coloration, that is „free – from“ but pops out between the usual ecological packaging. Through the combination of recycling paper carton box with bold, fun colors we created a revolutionary brand for the retail coloration shelf. The journey started with analyzing carton box colors, discussing the „no-model“-approach and working with playful, bold typography. Consumers are seeking for gentleness and trendy intensity. Only Love is both, technologically and design-wise a „hair-volution“.
Fa packaging design relaunch 2018, created by Baries.
Finally in 2017 Schwarzkopf announced the FA brand relaunch 2018.
The challenge: Relaunching the extensive portfolio of the number 2 brand in Henkel body care, that is sold in 78 countries.
– Differentiate extensive FA portfolio
-“From a trade brand to a love brand“ – strengthen brand uniqueness
– strenghten brand mission and character: “The explorer“
– Address “lighthearted experience seeker“
– Realize trendy & modern refreshment
– Give brand a more premium appeal
– Intensify scented sensoriality – “FA feels fantastic“
For FA we developed a new overall packaging design concept. Communicating the power of fragrance by strong and emotional surrounding stories. The stories are told within different pillars such as “Yoghurt“, “Cream&Oil“, “Oriental Moments“ and more. The different pillars are visually cluttered by geometric shapes.
“Cream&Oil” designs are focusing on sensoriality and premiumness by soft shapes and golden refinements. FA Moments is the trendy line of experimental and powerful fragrances, expressing the new motto “live the moment!“. And there are more pillars to explore!

In 2018 Schwarzkopf brand Palette launched the new „Naturals Color Creme“ packaging design, created by Baries.
Rise to a strong autonomous subbrand under Schwarzkopf Palette.
Focusing the natural color result and natural, caring ingredients.
Free interpretation of claim box and ingredient visualisation.
Palette and Baries have been connected throughout many years of collaboration. In 2018 we got the exciting challenge to go the next big step with our well known brand for the Palette Natural Color Creme packaging design relaunch 2018.
The new design creates a central round shape along with the new logo which gives the packaging a new individual branding. Keeping the historic green color code, we stressed the natural impact by implementing natural lightening and textures. We put a new focus on the natural ingredients and moved from the classic drop to modern, food inspired ingredient visualisations. Hereby we developed an extended color coding that fits the hair colors and therefore creates a strong brand block and shelf impact.
The new brand name got a modern and technological font with natural look & feel.
Palette naturals got a new face and personality.
We aimed for more natural and approachable models, with naturally flowing hair and diverse attitudes.

We are happy to introduce a new packaging design by Baries Design.
The label design of this french cuveé wine was created in collaboration with Pieroth Wine Company. The range includes 10 wines of different couleurs. An approachable, modern and likeable brand image should be communicated, beyond the conventional rigor of classic “chateau” wines.
A certain french mediterranean lightness combined with a kind of belle epoque feeling should create an visually inviting and re-experienceable approach.
We created situations, characters and moods that communicate the character of the wine itself. Even more they stimulate an aesthetic desire to try. The successful union of lightness and value.

We created the elegant and modern Linique Wines label design for Pieroth Wine Company.
The unique wine line convinces with its feminine and fashionable style. Three wines are entitled as “Charm“, “Chic“ and “Glam“.
The designated elegant titles are translated into sophisticated leather textures. The white “Cuvée Charm“ appears classy and delicately in white croco leather, whereas the red “Cuvée Chic“ performs in a bold and elegant ray leather look. Our third — the rosé “Cuveé Glam” has an extroverted and strong but still glamorous effect.
Linique shows us how powerful texture can be used in design to create moods even in subtile nuances.

The label design should consciously break with traditional wine labels.
It should show the kangaroo as the national symbol of Australia in an independent way.
Tattoos represent a young and rebellious lifestyle. The new wine name “Roo Tattoo” is a phonetically memorable use (“Roo” is Australian slang for “Kangaroo”).
It was important to ensure that the kangaroo does not look lovely or even cute, but wild and original. This could be abstracted and any style parallels with known brands or representants of Australia should be avoided.
The design language should be rough and unpolished like the australian outback.
The wine itself: Red wine (Shiraz / Cabernet) with a typical high alcohol content for australian wines. Ideally, the wine is not too finely grained, but retains a touch of something raw originality.
Its a cool australian red wine for young men to explore a new target group for the customer. Its a red wine for tough young men who like tattoos, rock music and an independent lifestyle. In this context the label design and black structured paper generates a new look and feel of a mainly masculine red wine.
Creative Agency: B.aries Design GmbH
Project Type: Produced, Commercial Work
Client: Pieroth Wine Company
Packaging Contents: Red wine
Packaging Substrate / Materials: Glass bottle

By now, everybody has heard about the huge amounts of food that gets thrown away on a daily basis due to numerous, often though ridiculous reasons. If an apple’s circumference is too big, a banana doesn’t have the correct curvature angle or a carrot’s color doesn’t comply with the norm, none of them will make it to the supermarket’s display. Yes, there are attempts to react to this insanity but of course there are better and worse ones. To shred half of a weird looking carrot in order to get a cute little baby version might be a clever marketing strategy to increase the feeling of freshness but is definitely no serious solution. Some Supermarkets put up a “ugly fruits” sign and offer these non-standard products at a lower price. But, let’s be honest many of us still prefer to stick with the standard which we are used to.
Misfit has an alternative approach. Instead of tackling the “outer appearance”-problem in a way to make them prettier, they simply give it a completely new look. 70-80% of their products are made of fruits and vegetables, which would have gone to waste because of their outer appearance. “We created an identity that challenges beauty standards and glorifies the oddballs. Through illustration, photography and web design, we were able to tell Misfit’s story and educate consumers in a way that was fun and approachable.” In comparison to the before mentioned attempts of rather little avail, this approach seems more promising in order to challenge the battle against pointless food waste. And by the way, they are actually looking really good!
The fifth season of the year – carnival – is always a big deal in the Rhineland and especially in Düsseldorf as one of the hot spots. So beside our creativity during the year, we are joyful to support our customers while relaxing and celebrating carnival together. Again our beloved and gifted Illustrator Malika Specht designed our lucky bag giveaway, which contains various funny gadget to enhance party atmosphere.
Everything starts with a sketch. Here we show you the creative development of the Illustration. The color scheme, as well as the dressed up „aries“ were inspired by typical Cancan dancers, which always have been a welcome visual trip to come to other thoughts.
We hope you enjoy this great time of the year as much as we do.
Everybody cheers: “Düsseldorf helau!”

„Mmh, what’s that?‘ – ‚Wine!‘ – Great, Emma. Very precise.“ Reading this blog post (the first one of its kind) one could think, it would be impossible to start a business in a market, where knowledge is not only essential but also almost seen as art itself. But if the right components meet each other even the biggest barriers can be overcome. In case of „Großstadthelden” (analogous: urban heroes) not only the right ingredients met, but also the young people with the right, fearless mindset.
Although coming together with completely differing backgrounds and specializations… or not even knowing what their subject areas specifically were, Lisa, Günther, Joe and Emma managed to place their faces in the picture of the multifaceted wine world. This is not a joke, they literally did – by placing illustrations of themselves onto their wine bottles. (By the way, these colorful self-portraits triggered our creative senses and made us stop by their booth) Fortunately Bio-Weingut Welter (Organic-Winery Welter) offers a bigger product range so that every hero got his own bottle with his face. Apart from its, for the wine world unusual outer appearance, a customer, whether experienced or not will be able to enjoy a product, made with passion for the taste and ecological responsibility.
From a small village into the big city – is an organic wine something todays urbaners need? „YES” Joe said. After tasting the wine for the first time he said, that this is a product he was missing in the city. Well, some random guy once said, “Stay hungry, stay foolish” and as far as I remember he was quite successful with his unusual ideas. So keep it up heroes we wish you success.
While walking around this huge trade fair, gathering new inspiration and trying to read between the lines, what the future concerning organic food will bring for us as packaging designers, a small booth caught our attention. Sure at first we were interested in the illustrations and usage of typography but we came into contact with pretty pleasant guys, that were just as relaxed as the company name sounds: HEYHO! But don’t let yourself be led astray by pigeonhole thinking. Behind this seemingly laid back image there’s a much more complex, long-sighted philosophy, which fascinated us even more than the colorful pictures.
Many industrial brands and businesses focus exclusively on satisfying their customer’s needs by delivering high quality, organic products or at least advertise that they’re doing so. Stefan, Timm and Christian are taking a step further or actually started their
business the other way around by creating jobs in the first place.
Their idea is to get homeless people, that have been excluded from social participation back to work, which will enable them to get out of an apparently hopeless situation.In their opinion, a socially oriented venture within a non-industrial revolution, as the HEYHO’s call it, is a possible alternative to conventional business models because they are confident that every human being, regardless of their differing past is capable of contributing their piece to our society. And on top of this humanitarian base we get “FrühsportFreunde” (Friends of early-morning exercise), “LateNightBreakfast”, “GoldenChachai” and “SaltcityOriginal” – four granola mixes, giving four unexpected taste experiences just as multifaceted as the people who made it.
We like your approach, we hope that you can continue realizing your HEYHO-vision and we agree: “Everything else is just Granola.”
We love the new chocolate brand “Johnny Doodle” from the Netherlands. Based in Amsterdam they manufacture delicious chocolate bars with a lot of creativity and finest ingredients.
Fortunately our boss regularly brings some new packs of Johnny Doodle to the agency. The Packaging design is in a way naive and really playful so it is a pleasure looking at it while enjoying the sweet.
The design really communicates the character of the brand and product. More of these fresh and tasty designs!
They got also fudge in their portfolio and ….why are you looking at my bottom…great!
