In 2020 the new clean beauty brand was launched: one.two.free! packaging design and brand developement by baries!
“Clean beauty is a global movement and a new transparent approach to the beauty industry, defined by clean brand products that contain no controversial and harmful ingredients for skin, body or environment.”

one.two.free! packaging design and brand building

The challenge

Create a visual identity and a packaging design for a new clean beauty brand.
The design should be young, appealing, cheeky and fresh and address the main target group of “millennial” women, who are seeking for natural & clean products.
The new cosmetic line should be easy to use and contain highly effective fermented ingredients, free of controversially health perceived ingredients. All of this should be reflected in the graphical approach and the packaging design.

Packaging design

Following the brands name, we developed a packaging series that represents a 3-step beauty routine. Consequently, the modern horizontal division of rose and white is broken up by the large numbers. As aresult, we created a striking and clear brand, which makes a big impression on shelf.
Finally, the large numbering, a playful typography and light pastel shades in combination with pink accents, create a strong contrast and an exceptional design.
Above all, the clear & playful design will strengthen the appearance in social media, to address especially the millennial women.

Logo development

It was most challenging to create a logo for the one.two.free! packaging design. Furthermore, it should reflect the purity of the product, its clear and simple application, as well as to capture the zeitgeist. Therefore, the new brand logo got a modern and playful font with a fresh look & feel.

Packaging design for a revolutionary new brand

In 2018, Schwarzkopf started to work on a revolutionary new hair color, that won’t damage the hair due to natural ingredients. We were very glad to develop the packaging design for 100% Vegetal and join the exciting process from the very first idea to the final product.

The Challenge

2018 Schwarzkopf briefed us firstly for their first all-natural hair color, crafted in India using the ancient tradition of Ayurveda. Launching a design which reflects the caring power of Ayurvedic plants and herbs and its natural caring benefits, addressing women who want to color their hair, but are afraid to damage it with chemical hair dye. The packaging design from 100% Vegetal should connect the user with the positivity of nature, which implies health and a natural color result.
Besides the natural and vegan ingredients, which should be considered in the packaging design, no models should be shown. The focus should be on the plants and herbs shown in stylized illustrations.
Due to the new method of application as powder and not – as is usually the case with commercially available hair coloration – as cream, new inner elements also emerged. Instead of a bottle developer and a tube of color cream, the packaging now contains just a sachet of powder. This not only saves costs, but above all protects the environment by reducing packaging waste.

Logo Development

The logo should give a clear massage from the first sight: 100% Natural, 100% Vegan and inspired by traditional ayurvedic methods.
We have based the logo design on the symbols known from Sanskrit in order to establish the connection between the Ayurvedic concept and the modern age.
The slightly irregular sans serif typeface, in which individual letters are connected with each other, is inspired by traditional Sanskrit, which has been used in India and South Asia for over 3000 years. It reflects the expertise of traditional Ayurvedic applications and the power of naturalness and stands out of the packaging design.

Our Work

According to the briefing, we created a design for the outer packaging that completely dispenses with a model approach. Instead, the focus is on natural hair and the main ingredients used in each color shade – arranged on a label reminiscent of a pharmacy label. The color of the hair in the background and the main color assigned to the shade in the label ensure that each shade has its own character. At the same time, the white tear-off label on each shade forms a uniform line in harmonious contrast.
The icons on the front were designed with great attention to detail and visualized in an unmistakable way. We also created all illustrations of the inner elements as well as those for instructions for use in the same sketchy style like the coloring ingredient shown on the front.
We have based the logo on the symbols known from Sanskrit in order to establish the connection between the Ayurvedic concept of the product and the modern age. The serif font transports the expertise and the centuries-old traditional method of hair coloring into the present, while the script in the headlines creates a stronger emotional bond with the consumer.

Technology evolves with the Power of Nature

Gliss Kur by Schwarzkopf is well-known for longstanding expertise in hair technology. Nevertheless, natural ingredients play a big role in performing formulas. With the new Gliss Kur Bio-Tech Restore Schwarzkopf didn‘t only offer a new formula that combines both. Instead, together we also set a new focus on design. A visual breakthrough of the power of nature in technology!

Challenge
  • Visualize the biological Phyto-Stem Cell Complex and Rose Water
  • Set a new focus on the power of nature in technology
  • Keep the brand identity recognizable

Our work

We have worked with Gliss Kur for over a decade. Following, we were excited about this new natural-technological approach and an innovative design for the new sub line Bio-Tech Restore!

„The Power of Nature“ – Visual

Our focus during the project was the visualization of the natural ingredients.

Starting with the rose water, we developed a new way of showing the traditional flower in a technological context. We visually used the X-Ray machine technology to show the rose blossom in a very detailed and enlightened cross-section. With this ambivalence between represented element and presentation style we mastered the challenge to unite natural ingredient with Gliss Kur’s technology approach. To stress the biological appearance, the flower is embedded in a liquid, which shape is amorphous and organic. Inside, Phyto-Stem Cells are showed with additional small pink liquid bubbles.

Besides, the communication is empowered with a new on top icon, that is claiming “The Power of Nature“. We designed a decent, graphic frame with a chemical form language that leaves open space for the visual.

The Power of Color

The color contrast between pink and green catches attention and enhances the natural impact. The specific green color tone distinguishes from classic organic products on the market and refers to the technological aspect. It also gives a more premium appeal.
 

The Power of innovative Design

All in all, the visual is the new main actor on the pack. Unlike previous Gliss Kur packaging designs, which show the technological visuals enclosed in a box. Now, a square is used for the text, whereas the visual is unboxed. The new text background ensures easy and structured readability. However, the light transparency leaves still room for the visual. The ingredients get particularly more space to catch attention with the innovative composition and colorful implementation of naturalness in technology.

Our Work
We loved this task from the beginning. And, this collaboration between Douglas GmbH in and Amber Valletta was more than inspiring.

Beauty Packaging for Amber Valletta

Skin care is mostly connected with rose, white and nude color shades. To achieve the prmiumness, we decided to design the approach in a rosegold look. So, this color supports the quality of the comfortable formulas and let the wearable shades stand for their own. Moreover, we provided the packaging with an flowing and organic all-over embossing. As a result, the consumer will experience an interesting and luxurious haptic. The design needs to work on for the differnt shapes of all five products.

Logo Development
The new brand name should get a personal style. Therfore, we thought about a handwritten character of the logo. The idea waslikes very much. Finally, inspired by Amber Vallettas original signature, the logo font was choosen closely by the original signature. Additionally, the logo is highlighted by the reduced and puristic setted product descriptions. Both, logo and claims were arranged simply black on a clean white box.
