As every year, we are sending our Christmas and New Year’s greetings in a creative format: a conceptual champagne packaging design that symbolically reflects the past year 2021 as well as the expectations for the coming year 2022. In this second pandemic year, our baries champagne packaging design combines the monotony of the last stretch and the anticipation of the coming year.
We are rounding off the year with a combination of shape, color and material to create a unique composition.
This year our packaging is set in a scene of different objects that we paradoxically have become both fond and tired of in the home office setting and is monochromatically immersed in the Pantone Color of the year 2022 ‚Very Peri‘ which fittingly underlines the zeitgeist.
Just as the colour reflects times of change, the premium silver packaging contrasts the monochrome everyday objects in above packaging scene. The cut-outs in the packaging provide a hopeful perspective after a period of monotony.
Although we will carry on with the home office in 2022, we hope for a future full of contrasts, transformation as well as digital and aesthetic futurism.
give instead of take: a better way to celebrate!
This is the motto of our Heart’s Desires. Our heart does not only beat for design. In 2020, it was our heart’s desire to have a special focus on the social and environmental impact we have as an agency. Until this year, every baries team member received a personal birthday gift. This year, we decided to donate that money instead to a good purpose. Therefore, everyone could individually select a charity of their choice. Less consumption – more happiness!
These are the organizations our team members selected:
Helau & Alaaf! Celebrating carnival in the Rhineland is a great tradition and provides the opportunity to dress up in funky costumes. Being located in Düsseldorf it is imperative that we dress up and we very much enjoy visiting our customers in a casual way. Of course, as a creative team we love to come up with a new costume every year and to surprise our clients and friends with a new, creative & trendy carnival-kit every year. However, carnival can bring about a lot of waste and is rather environmental-unfriendly. The costumes mostly consist of disposable items and the sweets and treats are wrapped in plastic. How did we solve this conflict?
This year, we have finally created our first sustainable carnival-kit! All treats we have given our customers have been locally manufactured in Düsseldorf and wrapped in paper to avoid plastics. The motto for our self-made costumes out of upcycled materials: Be Kings and Queens of hearts!
In the course of the year, we are giving a few seasonal gifts to our customers and employees, which were under our motto Heart’s desires as well. As part of the mission, the gifts are regionally sourced and intended for a good cause. As an example: the summer gifts were fruity jams handmade by „Paul kocht“ – an initiative that offers work and acceptance to people with special needs. With natural ingredients and exclusive flavors such as ‚Aperol-Orange‘ or ‚Pear and Lime‘, the spreads didn’t only take care of our client’s summer vibes, but also meaningful work. All this of course packed with a self-illustrated baries design.
Now, going towards the end of the year, it is even more important to share some love with people who are important to you during the Advent time. The countdown towards Christmas has officially started and we are so excited to unpack the wonderful presents from our Adventsome calendar together with every team member day by day. Matching our Heart’s Desires motto, the Advent calendar contains
