La Estrella en La Manzana by Estudio Menta

Packaging and visual identity by Estudio Menta and Laura Méndez for soap brand La Estrella en La Manzana

La Estrella en La Manzana is a brand of high quality soaps inspired by traditional production methods combining essential oils for a range of natural aromas. Handled by Mexican based Estudio Menta and designed by Laura Méndez it was inspired by 18th century French packaging.

While very on-trend (see L’Occitane and Crabtree & Evelyn) it is a great example of hand drawn and watercolour elements been brought together to form an identity that speaks of traditional values and quality with a very human feel. The brand colour palette is warm and earthy and sits well with the vivid watercolour illustrations which are effectively utilised on printed collaterals.

Thank you to everyone who has visited BP&O since its beginning in 2011. As many of you know, BP&O has always been a free-to-access design blog that seeks to offer extended opinion on brand identity work. It has sought to be the antithesis of the social media platform that often disentangles form, context and content. Writing articles can take 2-4hrs and are carefully researched.

I am passionate about design writing and believe that spending time to write about work, rather than just posting images, furthers design discourse. If you have enjoyed this article, have been with the site from its early days and would like to help contribute to its future, please consider supporting the site with a small PayPal donation. This will go towards the costs of hosting, CDN (to make the site quick to load) and Mailchimp, and cover some of the time it takes to research, write-up, format and share posts.
