Nature - Cosmetics Packaging

This 4-part presentation box was produced to present the Merck company’s Color Forecast for cosmetic applications. The bi-annual Forecast showcases current colour themes and how they can be implemented in cosmetic products, such as lipsticks, using effect pigments.

Another field of application for multi-part designs of this kind is gift packaging.

Our tutorials (download PDF below) summarize all the experience gained throughout the entire creative process, from design and the selection of print finishing methods and materials, to production.
