I started with the research board of small interior or small exhibition first. from the research, I learn how people use the small object in the exhibition for decoration it.
From the problem of tactile in my project, I come back and think about my topic. Due to my topic is about the brand environment. So, I decided to use the texture in the exhibition, not in the product. this is the mood board of the object that I feel associated with each scent.
I visualise my final exhibition look like the cosy and room in the house. Due to most of the people buy the candle for creating the better atmosphere in their room. So my idea is having a chair to make people sit and relax to listening to the song like in the living room, touch the object around the plinth and smell the candle at the same time.
At the moment, I work on the process of creating the QR code for each song. So people can scan and listen to the song immediately in the exhibition.
In the final crit, I presented to everyone with the idea of round tube paper packaging. Because I want the packaging that strong enough for the customer to reuse it again when they want to refill the candle. But after I try to contact the packaging company. Unfortunately, I have to order at least 100 tubes per one design.
After that, I changed the idea into the milk box because of the brand use soy and milk for making candle release less footprint. and I want this milk box come with the handle for reducing the shopping bag and customer can reuse again when they want to refill. So, I do some experiment with handle packaging.
I measure the size of a candle and design the packaging by developing from the regular milk box and add the handle to it. Then, I create the dielines in illustrator program and insert the essential information on it.
For the final submitting, I sent the mock-up of the packaging because of the limit of time. I can’t print with the excellent quality of paper on time, and the printed store in Cambridge doesn’t have any waterproof sticker for printing the sticker for the product label. Before the exhibition, I will reprint everything again and do the business card for promoting the brand as well.
Designing the label on the candle container, I started with did the researched board about the illustration on the label. I try to do research with the simple illustration, have a character but not too much in detail.
For the label layout, I got the idea from a gin and tonic label. when I went to the alcohol shop I always saw the interesting label. it makes me feel like a vintage and unique at the same time.
I try to experiment around with the layout of the label in the different version.
After I got the final design, I asked Lupe to help me do the proofreading on the label. and I got feedback from Rachel, I decided to check the space of the font in each paragraph again for making sure everything will be easy to read for the customer.
* I rename it all because the old name is too obvious like a man candle. so I create the new name for making people can feel the mood in each scent.
From the present brand name called the candle company cambridge, from this brand name I think it is not attractive enough. So after I interviewed with the owner about the logo, she told me before she uses this logo (She riding the bicycles with her dog in the basket) she used the chandelier as a brand logo before. But after she changes everything changes in the better way too.
So I come up with the idea of using Joella as a brand name. Due to this brand starts with her passion and her idea. And her name is quite fit with the candle brand too.
After final crit, I got the feedback from everyone is my logo is too much cartoon. Actually, I also thought like that before present it. So I decide to change into the simple way. I will look for the font for the logo.
This is a good example of experience with multisensory.AVM Curiosities is the company that explores the relationship between art and the senses by creating the events since 2011. Established by food historian Tasha Marks, With a practice heavily influenced by history, Tasha said “The foundations of my ideas come from history but I always try to mix them with a contemporary twist. Confectionery is one of my great passions as it is truly timeless: nostalgia and novelty are powerful tools when used in an artistic context.”
Inspired by the emerging field of Crossmodal, The Sonic Sensorium: Jazz Edition explored the interaction between the senses: pairing music and sound, to taste and aroma, creating an all-encompassing sensual experience.
The Sonic Sensorium: Jazz Edition was a concert and tasting menu like no other, pairing the work of three performers with either a creative cocktail, edible perfume or experimental taste.
From this case study, I come up with a lot of idea about multisensory in my candle brand and I think creating an interesting marketing strategy, the more we read and learn from the case study is the more we can get a new idea for our concept.
