Matcha Tea is already booming as well known detox ingredient from food the food industry. Therefore, Henkel wanted to launch a matcha tea haircare product under the Schauma baseline. It cares for the hair lengths and tips intensely while deeply cleansing the hair roots like a “hair detox”.
The main goal was to develop the care & detox segment under Schauma baseline in order to broaden up a bit the target group as it’s a very appealing concept for younger woman.
The challenge here was to use the green color coding but need to differentiate vs. other green variants. We were allowed to be more playful with the ingredient. Last the design should be adapted to the conditioner.
To make the overall design popping out next to for example 7 herbs we decided to go with a green and brown color code instead of just plain green. The architecture of the label from Schauma Care & Detox with matcha should be the same as in the whole baseline but should still stand out. In order to that, we decided to be more playful with showing the ingredient. The matcha tea powder spreads around the shiny brown circle and connects with a cup of soy matcha tea in the left corner. The tea seems to be freshly brewed, which visually emphasizes the strengthening effect. And like every other visual on the Schauma haircare products, the matcha visual connects with the healthy and shiny hair of the model.
In 2020 Schwarzkopf relaunched it’s professionally performing hair color brand Syoss with a baries packaging design.
Syoss is Schwarzkopf’s professional hair color brand in the retail shelves. The brand ensures most precise and intense results, which should be more notably highlighted within this relaunch 2020.
Accordingly, we worked with a just as much precise visual concept. The front layout shows a new diagonal cut, that complementary to the model integrates immaculate hair texture. This new hair-triangle with the prominent shade number puts a new focus on the outstanding hair quality, which will be reached by using Syoss hair coloration. The sharp cut visualizes precision, whereas the diagonal shape adds a new modern dynamic, that is also found in the details of the new model approach. Also, the new elements do visualize the technological performance of the patented colorist ingredient mix.
Regardless the new implementations, the brand personality is still pure and clear, due to the bold black main color. Furthermore, the successfully proven color coding in black, silver and red – or blue for the lightening shades – ensures the brand recognition to the current user. The brands traditional black professionalism is now additionally underlined by clear color differentiation. This applies especially in case of the old fading between the models head line and the logo on the previous design. The new clear line between the both with the anthracite background behind the model are now strengthening the logo on top, which has got a clear standing on black.
Besides the color differentiation, we kept the horizontal layout division in logo, model and text block. Likewise, the very individual block text design in the bottom area kept this layout. Yet, we simplified the text elements to strengthen the consumers focus and set a new content-related focus. Especially the lightener shades benefit from the new structure, that implements the „Levels of Lift“ in the text box for a clear contextual communication.
The precise, salon-like color result is the brands key benefit and need to be communicated to the consumer with a more prominent approach. Accordingly, the typical color guidance system was moved from the back to the top of the pack. This sets a new focus on the clear match between recommended base colors and achievable color results.
We also did design the icons on the side of the packaging. They communicate the usage in the precise coloration process in a way that fits the clear visual approach of the new facing.
The brand Syoss was seeking for a new model inspiration that keeps the professional brand identity but appears more approachable.
The brand is historically catching the consumers eye with unconventionally models with hidden eyes. Those have usually been covered by sharp fringe hair styles. Based on this, we kept the unique concept but modernized the style.
Now, the models have a dynamic hair cut line that covers the eyes in a more natural, not-perfect, more unexpected and approachable way. Nevertheless, the strong, mystery character and most importantly the perfectly professional hair quality are maintained.
In early 2020, Schwarzkopf Brillance launched their new line extension Gloss Hypnotics. It‘s a Level 3 coloration with an additional, temporary sparkling booster, visualized by baries design.
Based on the Brillance baseline packaging design we should create a visualization for the new feature from Brillance Gloss Hypnotics. The focus should be on the communication of the permanent result on one side and the temporary glittering effect on the other side. This special effect of the additional sparkling booster fades after one hair wash.
To draw attention to the essential innovation, we changed the box, icon visualization and the area on the right side. This allowed us to stay in the architecture of the baseline packaging design.
Instead of the red diamond structure in the lower box section we chose the specific hair color with glittering structure. By retaining the box structure, the line extension remains connected to the baseline.
The icon now contains not only a diamond, but also an illustration of the gloss booster tube and declares the two results. The area above the icon was changed the most. It distinguishes the product from the baseline. On the left side of the vertical line the shiny hair color result is displayed and on the right side the additional glitter effect of the sparkling booster is indicated. These two results are supplemented by textual explanations.

Schwarzkopf Gliss Kur team asked us to develop a label design for their new Gliss Kur subline Nutri-Balance Repair.
The task was to develop a label design for the new Gliss Kur sub line Nutri-Balance Repair, which supports the healthy balance of scalp microbiome and laying the foundation for silken smooth hair. These benefits should be transported to the user through the design. Color code and label design need to have a balance of natural appeal and technological performance.
The current Gliss Kur baseline range shows the performance of the product closed in a box. But new technologies require a new appearance.
The difference started already with Bio-Tech Restore. Product name and main formula components are communicated above the box.
On the other hand, performance and hair type recommendation are located in the lower part. As a result, this clear straightforward structure ensures that the consumer is informed about the differences at first glance. But it leaves little room for emotionality and naturalness. Most importantly, the visual now shows not only the performance, but also the effective ingredients.
The amorphous, authentic form of the liquid correlates with the representation of the birch leaf. Therefore, it appears as if it had been photographed with an X-ray machine. Most importantly, we were able to combine the natural ingredients and the technology contained in the formula in one image. As a result, we could explain them to the consumer at a glance. The apparent translucency of the visual and the white box make the text stand out. So, it provides clear explanatory information. The soft turquoise shade with a hint of blue generates a pleasantly caring feeling. Consequently, it highlights the silicone- and colorant-free composition.
This label design of Gliss Kur Nutri-Balance Repair follows on seamlessly from that of Gliss Kur Bio-Tech Restore. It is the first new product of the range that combines science with naturalness and whose design also originates from baries design.

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.
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.
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.
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.

The packaging design relaunch for these wonderful Gliss Kur Winter Repair hair care products from Schwarzkopf should communicate
the caring and repairing properties of the formula inside. It should create a smooth and cozy feeling as well as it should

The visual shows an oil-enriched creamy swirl so the consumer can see how the hair care will treat their hair. All over the label awake detailed snowflakes this unique heart-warming winterliy feeling, that we all love to have on a sunny day after snowfall.

GLOW by dm is Germany’s biggest beauty-event and inspires with wonderful spirit and the highlights of the industry.
As part of this convention, the limited edition Got2b Glow Girl, a styling lotion for Got2b‘s exhibition stand has been developed, to reflect this distinctively energy.
The new designs goal was to create a limited edition for the GLOW. The main color of this convention is pink and the exhibition stand from Got2b was designed on the theme of festival.
The customers ideas ranged from boho-style to urban glam or even ferry wheels. But the main point was to create a festival feeling with all its freedom and craziness, where the pink color, the loud and glaring associations were not missing. We had a very privileged briefing where we could let our creativity run free.
The whole pack surrounding of Got2b Glow Girl is telling a glamorous urban story. So the loud and glaring feeling of freedom takes action. The pack appearance let the consumer know, that she will not only have a great convention day, but also many glamorous following days, because she can take the glowing feeling home.
The newly developed logos unify this limited edition by the unique look & feel. It is very strong in its freedom association through the bold letters with a touch of nobody-can-stop-me. The bright colors of pink and blue matches perfectly with the light background, the Got2b logo stands out due to the high contrast of black and light gray.
In 2018 Palette relaunched three of it‘s coloration sub brands in one. The new designs create a strong range within the different duration levels with an extra it piece – the metallic spray add-ons.
– make the brands younger and more mainstream
– show strong color vibrancy

The new overall architecture for the three sub-brands creates an impactful brand block.
Color brushstroke and color spots playfully stress the vibrant color concept.
Models & Storytelling
Young & playful models are giving the brand a new look. The whole pack surrounding is telling an urban story – supported by in-house taken Insta-Pics at the backsides of each pack.

In 2019, Schwarzkopf relaunched the packaging design of it‘s natural shampoo subline „Schauma Nature Moments“. Furthermore, they not only relaunched, but got the eco-label on top! Additionally, they added new ingredient variants and the „Nature Moments Hair Smoothies“ subline was implemented into the portfolio.
Because natural ingredients are continously on the run, they stay relevant for the thoughtful consumer. Though, those who care for naturality are now also seeking for more environmental responsibility. Following, the already trusted line „Nature Moments“ needed to be updated to stay relevant and to attract even more responsible consumer to the brand.
– Enhance the natural appeal of Nature Moments
– Modernize visuals to show appealing and gentle natural ingredients
– Communicate environmental responsibility
– Integrate the new eco-label
We created an appealing packaging design, that has a strong stopping power and is very playful and designed openly.
The design is focusing on the natural ingredients. Therefore, those are displayed in a modern and dynamic way.
Inspired by food bowls, because they are very appealing to the conciuos consumer, the ingredients are shown in a top view.
So, we catched up with the latest food trend and used the insights in the beauty sector.
Moreover, the open design on the transparent label increases the effect of the transparency of the bottle.
So, this is giving contrast to the Schauma baseline, which is now visually clearly seperated.
Not only by the transparency, rather, because of the emotional focus on the ingredients.
Furthermore, additionally to the new design of the ingredients, we did also add illustrations, so that empower the playfulness.
Finally, we need to find a good way to integrated the eco-label icon.
Even more, the modern typo does help us to enhance the fresh concept.
Especially, the subline „Hair Smoothies“ by Nature Moments is refined by a typo and that gives us a „yummie“ feeling.
The new brand name got a modern and technological font with natural look & feel.

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.
