ABOUT

Client is a manufacturer of gold leaf. Instead of selling raw materials (thin gold leaves to craftsman or desert ingredients shops), we recommend client to develop a new brand that sell premium edible gold leaf to customers (expand the business model from B2B to B2C). We have designed a premium gift box for the new brand. The gift box is specially designed with glamour and elegance which is made of edible grade material. It comes with a bespoke tweezer to ensure easy application.

ABOUT

Unlimited Happiness is a New Year gift box containing everything you need for the holidays, allowing you to instantly spread the love and prepare for the occasion. The design revolves around the title theme Unlimited Happiness. In traditional Chinese culture, we follow the lucky saying 'the never ending 3s and 6s', a play on words of Infinity and Wealth, and the structure of the box is therefore divided into three layers and in a hexagonal shape.

Endangered Animal Pins

YEAR:

ABOUT

Today, due to the environment change and human behaviour, numbers of endangered animals are dropping significantly. So, the question is “can we still see these animals in future?” To prevent these beautiful animals from extinction, what we can do is to raise awareness and let more people understand about their situation, so that they can have more support and resources to fight against the current situation, just like what pandas in China have experienced. These pins aim to raise the awareness of public towards these endangered animals, instead of split part of the sales profit to animal foundation, we use the profit to produce more pins and donate these pins to relevant animal protection foundation, e.g. Philippine Eagle Foundation, which the sales of these pins will directly benefit the organisation, and they can use these pins for fundraising to maximise the fund they can obtain.
