Fisix designed by Mucho

Packaging designed by Mucho for sports shower range Fisix

Fisix is a line of cosmetic products that includes shower gels, shampoos and hydrating skin balms, developed by four marathon running friends who ‘couldn’t find a range that met their needs as sportsmen’, branded and packaged by multidisciplinary design agency Mucho.

Mucho’s design solution unties the diagrammatic, geometric forms and typographical, sans-serif utility and neutrality of the pharmaceutical and sports science industries with the subtle fashion and on-trend design sensibilities of a tightly spaced, lowercase serif logo-type, italics, and a flat, economical, unisex grey and pastel colour palette. A smart balance of formulated effectiveness and the more exclusive, restrained qualities associated with high fashion and professional cosmetics.

Apolosophy designed by BVD

Logotype and packaging designed by BVD for Swedish cosmetic brand Apolosophy

Based around their phi­los­o­phy of health and well-being, Swedish drug store chain Apotek Hjärtat have recently developed Apolosophy, a new, carefully formulated cosmetic line that includes products from the skin and hair care, makeup and sunscreen categories.

The range’s visual identity and packaging solution, created to be perceived as tactile, timeless and trustworthy by design agency BVD, unites the on-trend accessibility of a near consistent single line weight, soft curves, rounded terminals, all lower-case and well spaced letter-forms and a simple repetition of form through the ‘a’, ‘o’ and ‘p’, with the classic sensibilities of a black and white colour palette, the quality of a matt surface texture and the restraint of a logo-type only solution across the packaging. The result, while pared-down, really emphasises, complements and unites the colours and textures of the products with a subtle utility often associated with professional grade cosmetics.
