I believe that research and investigation leads to authentic and meaningful messaging in which each piece deserves its own flow, balance, and character.
jr watkins: sesquicentennial soap collection
JR Watkins has been making natural self-care products since 1868 and in preparation of their 150th anniversary produced a limited collection of hand-crafted soaps. In honor of JR Watkins' history, we designed unique packaging that represent four major eras in design.
Elaborate, hard-edged geometric designs and stylized floral elements of the Art Deco era are found on the Aloe & Green Tea scent. The gold-tone embellishments further emphasize the prosperity of this era.
The Rose & Hibiscus scent is decorated in an Art Nouveau style evident by it's asymmetrical design and heavy use of soft undulating florals.
Wood Block lettering can be found on the Honey & Oatmeal scent and complimented by symmetrical geometric designs.
Illuminated Manuscript was chosen for the Frankincense & Myrrh scented soap and is represented by elaborate capital letters, Gothic calligraphy, loose floral designs and peeling gold-gilded graphics.
