Ayelet Naturals designed by Oh Boutique

Packaging designed by Oh Boutique for organic, aromatherapy and skincare range Ayelet Naturals

Ayelet Naturals is an organic, aromatherapy and skincare business predominantly retailing products on-line from New York. As part of a rebrand, Buenos Aires based collective, Oh Boutique designed a series of new labels that draw together the natural and effective nature of the ingredients with loose illustrations, structured details and a modern type choice.

“We tried to develop a label system that looks fresh, natural and beautiful to costumers’ eyes. In this way, we used clear hues and created  linear hand-made illustrations showing the main ingredients of each product. We also included little geometric shapes with powerful colors used as accent in the general color scheme. The result is an attractive label system easy and cheap to print and stick on standard glass jars.”

This project is an interesting visual union of the clinical and the organic, appropriately characterised by the tone of the typography, in its simple, clean and refined letter-forms and the hand drawn execution and fine line weight of the illustrations. The idea of ‘scientific’ effectiveness is reinforced by geometrically structured, brightly coloured details and a primarily white colour palette that provides a neat contrast against the deep and rich tones of the product. A slight variation in line weight between the typography and illustration work have been effectively utilised to establish a pack hierarchy while adding a slight depth to the labels.

Support BP&O



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.
