Branding strategy and product design: Melt and pour soaps, colourants, fragrance oil, digital print and paper/cardboard paper., 2019.

I’m a visual designer working with digital design and craft making. My practice includes visual design, critical thinking, crafting and prototyping and materiality experimentation as an analytical tool for exploring the possibilities of maintaining the balance between aesthetics, functionality and sustainability of the design or product. My project ‘Gift + Take’ is a branding and product design that produces handmade aesthetic soaps. This project aims to demonstrate the importance of sharing and giving and to be thankful. The cute and yummy-looking soap aims to provide joy and happiness, even just a little to the person who receives it and hope to put a smile on their faces.
