24th. A Student Project

The project

“24th” is a student project. The first part of the task was to create a series of packaging, beginning with the economy version, through the more expensive one, to the premium version. The name “24h” was chosen because it implies freshness and beauty throughout the day when using this product. Three different colours indicate three types/scents: Pearl, Lavender and Viola. Lavender (premium) should be printed on some high-quality paper and hot foil stamping should be used.
The second part of the task was creating a campaign for the premium packaging which included not only one poster and billboard but also the teasers. Since Provence is a region famous for lavender, Mina Bakliža chose it as a “backdrop” for the advertisement, and came up with the message “Using this soap will make you feel as if you were somewhere in Provence”.
