How andreia.quercia started their product packaging journey
We're looking for CREATIVE, EFFECTIVE and SUSTAINABLE ways to package SOLID COSMETICS, such as shampoo bars, conditioner bars, deodorant bars. BOB - Bars over Bottles, is a Brazilian Startup focused on developing 100% Plastic-Free, Vegan and Cruelty-free SOLID COSMETICS, and we need to a creative mind to help us find the best way to package our bars, considering efficiency and minimizing environmental impact.
What colors do you want to see in your design?
What industry do you think your business is most related to?
BOB is a startup, based in Brazil, that wants to renew the way people consume their cosmetics (Shampoo, Conditioners, Deodorants), by significantly reducing the use of packaging and getting 100% rid of plastics.
Therefore we've transformed all our products into solid bars, which are made with natural ingredients.
Around 80% of the weight of a shampoo bottle is water, which requires plastic to be transported along a costly value chain (CO2 emissions and inventory costs) until it reaches us at home. With solid cosmetic, you concentrate all the best ingredients and use the water which is already available at home in our shower.
Description of the product target audience
Our clients are people who are concerned about their impact in the environment and are looking for solutions to minimize their footprint in the planet. They also usually prefer natural ingredients over synthetic and are looking to live a more minimalistic life, reducing consumption and valuing practicality.
We're currently looking for a more creative and beautiful Label and Package design for our Shampoo and Conditioner bars.
The packaging solution for both (Shampoo and Conditioner) should be the same (e.g. kraft paper boxes), and the labels should differentiate them.
We're looking for creative sustainable alternatives to wrap our bars in :)
For this project, we're focusing on a packaging solution for only one Shampoo (The Nourishing Shampoo) and one Conditioner (The Hydrating Conditioner), but the design should consider that the product line is larger, so it should allow an unfolding into new products (e.g. Shampoo Detox, Shampoo Sensitive Scalp, Conditioner Deep Hydration).
We're looking for a designer who will innovate our current packaging and continue working directly with us afterward, as our product line increases.
What to avoid
Plastic or any oil derivative.
Our bars are shaped as cylinders. Shampoo: diameter 7cm and hight 3cm Conditioner: diameter 6cm and hight 2,5cm. The Shampoo bars should have around 75-85grams and the conditioner bars 60-70grams.
